My father was admitted to IJN two days ago. He was experiencing faint spells and shortness of breath and was advised to go for a more thorough check up at IJN. He is alright now, the doctor gave him the thumbs up after the procedure and was discharged a day later. His cholesterol level is still high and he has to be on a constant low fat diet. So no more fattening santan dishes, those creamy durians and puluts, which are all his favourite by the way.
When I went to see him at my sis's place, I decided to bring him some wholesome goodness from my sekangkang semut oven. A freshly baked "heart friendly" desserts, that couldn't get any healthier than these. It's my version of carrot cake, and I think these are the best ones I have made so far. This is a must try recipe and should be a keeper as well, simply because of its healthy entities. Your heart would love you for making them and they are moist, oozing with natural goodness and most importantly, delicious.
