BEST EVER CARROT CAKE


Classic favourite that is easy to prepare and delicious. This is probably the best carrot cake I have ever had. I made a slight tweak by adding pineapple which made the cake moist and dense and the flavour was wonderful.

  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. / Panaskan ketuhar pada 180 
  2. Beat sugar and oil until thick, then add 1 egg at a time and keep beating for a few more minutes. / Pukul gula dan minyak sehingga pekat kemudian masukkan telur satu persatu dan pukul beberapa minit lagi
  3. Add salt, bicarb soda, carrots, flour, walnuts and spices. / Masukkan garam, soda, carrots, tepung walnut, kelapa kering, rempah dan nenas.
  4. Mix with wooden spoon until all combined. / gaul rata menggunakan senduk kayu
  5. Put batter in well greased loaf pan or tin and bake for 35-45 minutes (cake) or 15-20 minutes (cupcakes), or until light golden and cake springs back when touched in the middle./Masukkan adunan dalam acuan dan bakar selama 35-45 minit bergantung kepada oven. Baking time might vary depending on your personal oven.
Frosting
  1. Beat the icing sugar and butter together with an electric mixer until well mixed. / Pukul butter dan  gula ising
  2. Add the cream cheese in one go and beat until it is completely incorporated. / Masukkan keju sehingga sebati
  3. Turn the mixer up to medium high. Continue beating until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. Do not overbeat, as it can quickly become runny. / Putarkan mixer pada medium dan terus pukul sehingga adunan mengembang lebih kurang 5 minit. Jangan terlalu lama
Klasik kek lobak merah yang lembap dan sedap. Resipi asal tidak meletakkan nenas..tetapi saya pernah melihat blog Ezani - Juara Master Chef Malaysia meletakkan nenas dan kelapa kering jadi saya membuat tambahan pada resipi asal dengan meletakkan nenas dan kelapa kering ternyata memang sedap.
