This is what happens when you desperately look for a carrot cake to put in the 4th candidate in the monthly special. For one of the rare occasions, I am not keen to take more than 3 bites.
1st bite – Eh, let me re-confirm…
2nd bite – I don’t think I like this…
3rd bite – Yucks…
First, the texture is weird, like Yuan describes, it has an extremely moist and sticky texture like a Chinese Prosperity Cake, (发糕 aka Huat Kueh). Second, they minced the raisins in the cake mixture which has an artificial syrup after-taste. But, the saving grace was that their cream cheese was passable since the texture was alright and that the butter taste wasn’t overwhelming… Enough said.
I only have one comment to make. It tastes so like “Huat Kway” (Those steamed cake that you use for Chinese prayers).
