cebu torta cake
Torta is a popular baked product in Cebu and all of Visayas region of our country. It is kind of similar to Mamon but Mamon is lighter and CebuTorta is more densed and almost like a Pound Cake. Like the Bibingka, the Torta has already been made available in different variations and in different tastes in various places across the entire country.
These little cakes baked in torta or bioche molds are so delicious and smell so good because of the star anise that I added. Buttery and a little toasty on the edges. Perfect with hot tea or coffee. Try it and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!

Thank you for this recipe. This has brought back a lot of childhood memories. My late aunt used to bake this in their hometowns in Dagami and Tacloban, Leyte, where she had a bake shop, and when she visited us then in Quezon City, she would bring us this Torta; as a child, this was my first memory of a delicious cake. My late aunt used to send the Romualdez family boxes of Torta. Imelda used to be a young child then.
I hope to try this recipe one of these days. Thank you for your scrumptious recipes. I am always inspired to try most of them.
All the best and you be more blessed!
Hi Ms. Jovet, That's good to know. Yes please try it and let me know how it goes. Thanks and God Bless as well. :)
what's the size of the brioche molds you are using please?
thanks for sharing your recipe!
Hi. You're welcome. It's 4 inches W x 1 inches .
Walang unit naka lagay sa baking powder kaya 1 1/2 cup ang ginamit ko. Turned out bad for me ☹️☹️ First time to make pa naman lesson learned for a beginner like me
I apologize for the typo na hindi ko nalagay ang tsp sa sukat (already corrected) but you used 1 1/2 CUP baking powder??? That's more than the all-purpose flour required in the recipe. If you have questions about the measurements, you can always confirm it first to make sure. Also, I have a VIDEO attached that says I used 1 1/2 tsp baking powder.
You say in your torta recipe to use one star anise. It is almost impossible to find a star anise where I live in Maine. Can anise extract be used in it's place? If so, how much? I'm originally from Badian, Cebu, and torta brings back childhood memories. Thank you so much for your blog. It has many wonderful recipes!
Hi, I apologize for the late response. Yes you can use anise extract. I haven't used it though so I just suggest to add a little bit to make sure that's it it's not too strong. Thanks for visiting! :)
Hi how much is this if you sell it
I don't know as I do not do costing here in California.
