In search of White Cake (白饼)

One of my favourite confectionery when I was young is this old-fashioned White Cake (白饼) that is coated with a lot of flour. How I miss these classic cakes...

"White cake has a sponge cake like body and generously powdered with flour. It is almost always offered in a stack of 3 gently sitting on top of each other in a transparent plastic bag sealed with a strip of red tape. It taste sweet and powdery and very very soft with a pleasant fragrance." - Chinatownology

I have a favour to ask all of you, my talented baker friends: If you have come across any good recipe or know how to make these White Cake (白饼), please share with me. Hugs. :)
