Amelia’s Homemade Carrot Cake
Amelia’s Homemade Carrot Cake (“AHCC”) is a home-based business owned by Amelia Teh offering homemade carrot cake and pumpkin cake. Each carrot cake and pumpkin cake are made daily, in limited batches and delivered on the day it was made to ensure the optimal freshness of the product.

Carrot Cake & Pumpkin Cake
My first impression when I first received the carrot cake and pumpkin cake, WOW, that is a lot of “liao”. Loaded with a generous amount of ingredients such as lap cheong (Chinese sausage), dried shrimp and shiitake mushrooms. When I cut through the carrot cake, I feel the dense yet bouncy texture.

Meanwhile, the pumpkin cake is less bouncy, yet the texture feels dense. It is also packed with ingredients.

For the 1st try, I simply pan-fried with oil. The result is a crispy exterior with a moist interior. I each bite of the carrot cake, I can taste the subtle sweetness of the radish, strong wine flavour from the Chinese sausage, the earthiness of the mushroom and the umami flavour and bouncy texture from the dried shrimp. Not only the carrot cake is moist, but there is also a “good bite” in its texture.

Meanwhile, the pumpkin cake has that extra natural sweetness derived from the pumpkin. The natural fibre also helps to create rough texture in the pumpkin cake.

Each piece of the carrot cake and pumpkin cake retain its shape during the cooking process. and it does not fall apart. This version of carrot cake looks like those serve in restaurant dim sum. Also do take care when pan-frying, as the Chinese sausage used here has a high content of Chinese wine, it can be a bit bitter if you over fried it. 

LD did the second version of cooking. This was done on the third day after we received the Media Drop. It is stir-fried with XO sauce and eggs. The carrot and pumpkin cake retain its shape, while the eggs and XO sauce enhances the flavour of the carrot and pumpkin cakes. We like this second version of cooking better.

The verdict, Amelia’s Homemade Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Cake are delicious. We prefer the pumpkin cake more than the carrot cake due to the extra bite and natural sweetness of it. With all things homemade and handcrafted, the product come at a premium pricing. However, it is worth the money especially with the generous amount of the ingredients.
