Lyn you left something off the ingredients list. On the recipe you sent me it also has 1 1/2 rounded dessert spoons Plain Flour as well.

For our US members Plain Flour would be called Cake Flour but you could get away with All Purpose Flour.
Castor Sugar is Superfine Sugar.
Corn Flour is usually called Corn Starch or Cornmeal, or Maize Starch. It is white also.
Baking Powder is not just Baking Soda, it is the mix of what we call Bicarbonate of Soda with Cream of Tartar and some cornflour to stabilize. I think a good brand of it in the US is Royal Baking Powder.

I know I had to convert some of your names for products when I got some American Cook Books and the names they used were different to what we called them in Oz. So I hope my name conversions help.

Sounds so good! It's a bit risky trying to make it in a Japanese oven. Pretty much a guaranteed fail :( Hope others give this recipe a go! Post pictures!.... I'll be drooling... ;)

Sounds wonderful, Lyn however I am currently following Slimming World's 'healthy eating plan' aka a diet, so I'm afraid cake is out of the question at the mo :( - but I have lost 8lbs in 4 weeks so that's good :D
