Mamon is my FAVORITE Filipino dessert (or one of them ^^*). The thing that differentiates mamon from American sponge cake is because its a little more sweeter and buttery. Mamon is a very soft and creamy cake. :]

Awesome! I halved the recipe for two people - I have to admit I had doubts about beating all that fat into my nice meringue, but it turned out wonderfully. I did add a TBSP or two of Horlick's malt powder, just because.
