Castella is a type of chiffon cake that is a specialty of Nagasaki. It was originally brought to Japan by Portuguese merchants in the 16th century. It features a light and airy cake that is bouncy and soft with a moist texture thanks to the use of mizuame, a type of sugar syrup. Castella is one of Japan's most popular confections due to its excellent texture and light sweetness that pairs beautifully with tea.
