Japanese Egg Bread (pound cake)


Japan makes some of the best bakery goods and treats. One of my favorite is a simple egg bread, which is really more of a pound cake. Topped with ice cream or toasted with butter is the best way to enjoy these treats!

Full time 1 hour
Makes 12 breads

The needs-

4 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup fine sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


The know-

Preheat oven to 350' and spray a 12 cup muffin or mini cake pan with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl whisk together eggs, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy.

Add in flour and baking powder, stirring just until incorporated.

Add in oil and mix to fully incorporate.

Pour mixture evenly into prepared pan, roughly 1/4 cup batter per well.

Bake in oven 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and they spring back when lightly touched.

Remove from oven and cool in pan 1 minute.

Flip out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Cheers!
