Carrot Cake from Scratch

Mains

Sides/Snacks

Easy Level:

Watch Jon make carrot cake from scratch (yes, he actually shreds the radish) and see how it transforms into the starchy, eggy goodness we all love.

 

Uncle Sng shared how his mother handmade carrot cake with a huge paddle to get the right consistency. From his memory, we pieced together the remaining ingredients to come up with this recipe! 

 

We dapao (take away) some for Uncle Sng to try. Will our carrot cake pass Uncle Sng’s taste test? Or does Uncle Sng shake his head in disappointment? Find out in next week’s video! Follow our page and never miss out on new recipes.
