Same version as the other Filipino sponge cake, except less eggs and steamed instead of baked. Quick recap: Filipino sponge cake is a buttery sweet version of American sponge cake.

Did not come out soft and spongy. Cake rises but when taken out, it fell flat and tastes too much of eggs. Does not tastes like Filipino steamed cake.
