Coffee Bean & Tea leaf: Grandma’s carrot cake

Ah ma! Ah ma! I want another slice of that. The brownish-orange cake with the smooth cream frosting on top. What is that name again? Yes, carrot cake. Another slice please, before kor-kor comes back from school. Time passed, and ages caught up with us eventually. Ah ma is no longer as young as she was before. And the energy, effort put into making the kuehs, also diminished with every passing day.

Coffee Bean’s carrot cake isn’t the best carrot cake that I’ve. But then again, I didn’t have that many before to compare it with. And yes, I know I haven’t try the legendary one from Cedele yet. Anyway, even though the cream frosting was generous, but the raisins were too much for my personal liking. And the No-study sign is a joke.

haha, grandma = angmoh grandma, not chinese one la. which chinese grandma noe how to make this type except the chai tow kway maybe!

i used to like cedele until i tried the one from prive. its really nice la (at least i find it so). when u go prive again u must try the carrot cake k! :D

I’ve never had a good carrot cake. Perhaps because I had bad carrot cakes early on and subsequently pass on all others that I come across.

evan: hahaha there might have some very hip grandmas who know how to make this type ma! aiyoh. lol! yeah gonna try the prive carrot cake that u have been raving about.

nate: oh i see. Personally i haven’t try very good ones yet, but the cream frosting is enough to make me try more. haha

heeh. and i’ll be one of those hip grandmas who makes the all american carrot cake next time. *sheesh*.. i don’t think tattoos age well though. haha. I wanna try the prive carrot cake too!

i honestly haven’t tried ANY carrot cake before.. the name just kind of make me not want to eat it =x haha!

haha! I lovee carrot cake (: however I think that the one at coffee bean is totally not worth the money. it’s too sweet and I got quite sick of it halfway through. the cedele one is much better.

layla: oh mine. you should try it, at least once. haha! it’s not as bad as you thought, maybe just go and have cedele’s one.

shanna: hahaha! yeah i dont like the raisins in it. haven try that many carrot cakes, need to go explore :)

oh u don’t like raisins? :( prive one has lots in there haha, particularly why i like it i guess. but all carrot cake got raisins what!

my girlfriend use to bang on for hours about how gd this was and then i found the perfect recipe that totally outdid all the carrot cakes i’ve tried so far, all thanks to Ina Garten. check it out if you fancy baking ;) we don’t have coffee bean & tea leaf here, but eat. (the sandwich chain) does a fine slab of carrot cake! x

It’s satisfying and best of all, cheap so to sum it up, value-for-money – The Soup Spoon.

So sad to see bad reviews of CB’s carrot cake. I <3 it a lot! I actually tried Cedele’s before but did not like it as much. I think it has spices?? Can’t remember exactly but I agree, the cream layer is delish!

For those of you who love carrot cake then why don’t you give Calendar’s carrot cake a try? It is the best!
