Gula Melaka Carrot and Cranberry
When we started experimenting with this cake, we had to find the maximum amount of carrots the batter could take, balanced against the right amount of spices. We didn't want a very sweet cake, since most folks who eat Carrot cakes tend to pretend they are eating healthfood, sort of. Of course I'm speaking from experience, when it comes to cakes experience is one of the greatest teachers, and pleasures. We'll agree that brown sugar is a whole lot healthier and that's what we use to sweeten the cake, and cranberries to add a slight tangy sweetness. The cream cheese frosting just lightly sweetened with pure Gula Melaka sourced from the estates of Malacca brings the cake together, with the right amount of richness and creaminess a good carrot cake deserves. Let's just agree this can qualify as healthier food, and why not when it's packed with so much carrots, which is one of nature's superfoods!
