Specially for my Hub's Birthday

Carrot Cake
1 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon 
60g fine sugar
80g light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp rum 
150g carrots, shredded
70g raisins 
60g walnuts

80g icing sugar
 1/2 Tbsp Cointreau

sweetened coconut flakes, lightly toasted

1. Place butter in a pan & heat on the stove until the butter has melted & begins to turn brown. 
Pour the browned butter into a clean bowl & discard the butter solid residue.

 2. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda & powder into a bowl. Set aside.

3. In a mixing bowl, whisk sugars, eggs & rum till smooth. 
Add in the browned butter & mix well.

 4. Add in all the flour mixture & mix until well combined. 
Add in carrots, raisins & walnuts. Mix well.

5. Pour batter into two 7” cake pans. 
Bake in a preheated oven @ 160C for 20mins. 
Verdict: Extremely soft & moist cake. Very flavorful as you bite into the sweet raisins, crispy walnuts & toasted coconut flakes. Smooth cream cheese frosting with a light salty taste from the butter. Perfect combination! Even my hubby who does not like carrot cake commented that it is very yummy.


I asked my hubby what cake pattern he wanted for his birthday this year few mths ago. He said that he wanted the cat same as the decal in our room *^_^*
