The simple traditional chinese sponge cupcakes has a higher sugar and flour content as compare to the "modern day" lighter version sponge cake. The crumb may be a little dry, but the aroma of the caramelized crust was irresistible, to me😋 The cakes certainly have to go with your favourite hot beverages, to "wash" them down your throat😉
If you want to make the cake more milky, you can soak the cake with milk - three types of milk. And topped with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh, so yummy 😋
