Mamon Or Filipino Sponge Cake!

This morning I decided to make this Filipino Sponge cake or what we call in the Philippines Mamon! This is my first time baking this dessert and it has been a long time since I tasted this, probably the last time was way before I came here in the US almost 11 years ago! I honestly do not remember what they're supposed to taste like! I posted a picture on Facebook and said that I do not remember the taste, and one of my friends commented that, it's supposed to be spongy to the touch and sweet to the taste. So I guess I made it right, thanks to the recipe from

If you want to try this out, I posted the recipe below from or you can click the link above to go to the site to watch the video! I tell you, it is very easy to make and it tastes really good! I did add a little more sugar than what the recipe calls for, because I wanted it a little sweeter! And also, if you don't have a cake flour like I did, you can actually make your own cake flour by substituting all-purpose flour and cornstarch. Just put 2 tablespoons of cornstarch at the bottom of your 1-cup measuring cup and fill the rest with all-purpose flour and then mix well!

Mamon Recipe


  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cream tartar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 eggs, yolk separated from white

Cooking Procedure

  1. Combine cake flour and baking powder then mix well. Set aside.
  2. Combine egg whites and cream of tartar then beat until the mixture becomes somewhat fluffy.
  3. Gradually add sugar then continue beating until the texture becomes fluffier. Use high speed for this process; this should take around 4 to 8 minutes.
  4. Add lemon juice and egg yolks then mix again.
  5. Put-in vegetable oil then mix for a few seconds then gradually add cake flour-baking powder mixture. Continue mixing until the texture becomes smooth.
  6. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  7. Grease the molds using cooking spray then scoop some of the mixture into the mold. Continue doing this process until all the mixture is used-up.
  8. Bake for 13 to 16 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  10. Serve. Share and enjoy!
Number of servings (yield): 4
