Lusog Notes

This Steamed Carrot Cake recipe is rich in vitamin A that helps protect one from infections and promotes normal growth and development. Vitamin A also promotes good vision and healthy skin.

Chef's Tip

Make sure to place the cream cheese at room temperature 30 minutes before mixing so that it is soft enough to be whipped. Cream cheese that is too cold will be hard to smoothen and may cause the frosting to become lumpy.
