Meet home baker Carol!

Hi everyone, I am Carol! I have been a home baker for over 20 years and I love baking and cooking for my kids. I only began selling my baked goods recently after I became “famous” overnight through my son, Kurt, and our private home dining experience Casa Kumi.

The sugee cake which I will be demonstrating is special to me as it was my late father’s favourite cake. When he passed away, baking this cake became really difficult as it reminded me too much of my father but Kurt was always there to support me. I will always remember how Kurt’s words gave me the strength to bake this sugee cake again. This cake is a personal memory for 3 generations of my family and when you try my cake this coming August, I hope that you get a taste of my story and my love for my family!

More about Eurasian Sugee cake

The Eurasian sugee cake is a buttery cake made with egg yolks, butter and semolina flour mainly found in Singapore and Malaysia. Typically baked during festival occasions such as Christmas, the treat is a staple and enjoyed by many Eurasian families. Each Eurasian family has their own spin on the sugee cake and they guard their recipes and ‘secret ingredients’ fiercely.
