I terribly miss our good old Mamon back home for several days already so yesterday I decided to bake and I was really hoping it would satisfy my craving.Yes, it did and right now, I am enjoying my precious Mamon with hot chocolate. Oh what a life, the comfort that it gives when you are actually enjoying your craving.I wont trade it for anything else and again back to the same routine. How did Mamon come to our place?

Mamon is a very soft yellow sponge cake with moist buttery flavor.It is a very popular sponge cake in the Philippines and is considered to be among the top 10 pastries in the country. Filipino Mamon is considered also as the old time favorite and usually Balikbayans or Filipinos who come home for a vacation would bring Filipino Mamon with them going back to their destinations. There is this popular bakeshop in our place that popularized mamon in a box of 6 or 12(individually wrapped). So,you can just grab a bag or two and carry them with you.The shop is called Goldilocks and the shop itself created a history because its been with us since 1966. Most Filipinos grew up with it and nowadays you can find their branches internationally. For more information you can read their website and amazingly now it has Padala Program or you can order online You're The 1 Goldilocks Oh lets go back to my precious mamon. This type of cake can be consumed freshly baked or straight from the fridge.Nowadays Filipino Mamon comes in different varieties such as special or regular. Special comes with sugar and cheese on top while regulars ones are without toppings, plain yet delicious and that's how I wanted my Filipino Mamon. Recently I discovered that there is Mocha Mamon and it is also good. Now I think of making my own chocolate mamon. Hmmnn..I think its lovely and the fact that we all love chocolates at home. I read that this type of cake originated from the Chinese settlers who came to our place. They introduced it to us and we gladly welcome it..Chinese cakes are basically white and yellow,very soft,moist and they don't bake it..rather they steam it. The word mamon is a slang Spanish term for breast. Well,I find its funny but that's the way it is...I imagined Mamon as soft,fluffy and it doesn't make any sense at all, so lets just leave it that!
Here is my Filipino Mamon
Printable Recipe
8 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1/3 cup +2 tbsp milk
2 cups cake flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 tsp orange extract
1/4 tsp lemon extract
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
8 egg whites
1 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup white sugar

Combine and sift cake flour,baking powder,baking soda and salt.Set aside.
In a mixer bowl, put the egg yolks, sugar, butter and milk
Beat in a high speed until fine and smooth
Then add the flour mixture, orange extract, lemon extract, lemon zest and vanila.
Use the paddle this time and mix in high speed until well combined.Set aside.
This time beat egg whites and cream of tartar together in high speed.
Once the peak starts to form, add the sugar gradually
Beat until high and stiff.
Combine the mixtures by adding the egg white mixture over the egg yolk flour mixture.
Gently fold them together by using wooden spatula.
Once the mixture is combined,make your own mamon using your moulds of preference.
Bake at 350 or 180 for 15 minutes.

Here they are..the lovely and the fairest of them all. The very top is moist and sticky and when you bite, prepare to lick your upper lip. Hmmmnnn..such a yummy treat, soft and fluffy! The moment the first batch was done, I really fell in love. I grabbed them and I ate them.. My Gosh, my craving was so great, I ate six of them in five minutes...the next I dont count anymore..forget the numbers and the calories just eat,giggle and be merry because these pretty little angels are so heavenly.

The smartest thing to do cause it looks so cool, just grab a pack and be happy because this is the day for an instant celebration for whatever reason.Today while making my post,I have the pleasure of eating my brunch..the nicest brunch because its my craving..its my pleasure and I dont care how I bite..whether Im a lady or a monkey..that I dont care. Well, come on in..have some..the best things in life are for free! Lets eat,lets giggle and lets be merry!
