Many carrot cake stalls today buy their carrot cake from suppliers, while only a handful make their own carrot cake from rice flour. However rarely do you ever hear of stalls milling rice to make their own carrot cake.
Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake is a 60-year-old stall that does just that. Broken rice is milled into a solution then turned into a paste with hot water. Carrots and radishes are then added, and this is steamed for four hours.
This truly authentic carrot cake is chunky and crispy, and tastes even better if brought home and eaten a few hours later. So do try this made-from-scratch savoury delight, and enjoy the flavours of the past.
