We all love carrot cakes! This is my take on a classic carrot cake.
Hi! I’m Hanbit, professional pastry chef and CEO of Sugar Lane Baking Academy based in Seoul, Korea. Funny enough, my background had nothing to do with baking - far from it. I studied mathematics at university and then worked in finance, strategy consulting and IT. Then one day in 2018, I quit my job and enrolled at a pastry school. I have loved it ever since! As my story suggests, I really enjoy being a pastry chef and I am keen to share the joy of baking with as many people as possible. Baking can seem daunting at first but as long as you take it step-by-step anyone can do it - even someone with no baking background like myself managed to become a professional pastry chef! I'll try my best to include detailed explanations and tips in my recipes so that you will be able to bake amazing desserts. I aim to create videos that can be enjoyed by people at all levels - those who bake for fun as well as those who want to get more serious.
I had this dessert countless times when I was in the UK. It’s essentially a custard pudding and it’s rather simple to make! It’s so fun and delicious to crack and serve the caramel on top and scoop it with the custard pudding below.
You will love this recipe. I love Basque cheesecake – it’s also called burnt cheesecake because you burn the top due to the high temperatures. It gives a smokey caramelized aroma which is absolutely delicious.
