I was never really a fan of Carrot Cake (Bánh Cà Rốt) all these while probably because I never had any good experience eating a good carrot cake out there. However, I think it is one of Best Vietnamese Food. Maybe the thought of eating a “vegetable” cake deterred me from wanting to try this out compared to chocolate cakes or cheese cakes. Anyway, not any longer ever since we got ourselves a Fagor oven in our new house. Carrot cake rocks! More so when it is topped with lemon cream cheese frosting and eaten slightly chilled.
My wife made this a couple of weeks back and I am now a fan of this Best Vietnamese Food. Moist and nutritious, this carrot cake is laden with freshly grated carrots, sweetened pineapples, oven-toasted walnuts and plump raisins. I think the best part that there is no mixer involved (with a little caveat that a mixer would be required to prepare the frosting). Just get yourself a big bowl and spatula and give it a good mix manual.
What makes this carrot cake so special that I have decided to call it the Ultimate Carrot Cake Recipe? Well, it’s been handed down from my mother-in-law to my wife; it tastes good as reported by many who have tasted this and most of all, one piece is never enough. Need I say more? Sift the flour with soda and baking powder. Add castor sugar.Beat eggs lightly in a separate bowl. Add in vanilla essence.
Pour egg mixture into the flour and stir well. Then add grated carrots followed by cooking oil. Add in the chopped pineapples and stir well.Then add in the raisins and walnuts.Pour mixture into a greased and floured tray and bake in a preheated oven at 170Â°C for 45 minutes.Remove from oven and allow standing to cool before applying a thin layer of frosting. Now it is the end of making this Best Vietnamese Food.
To sum up, cake is best served chilled. Beat cream cheese and butter in a bowl of using a hand-held or electric mixer. Beat on low speed till blended. Gradually add icing sugar (sifted) and continue beating until smooth.Add vanilla essence and grated lemon and allow to beat till well combined. Hope you like the making way of this Best Vietnamese Food. Have a nice day.
