Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

It is Father's Day!! As usual, we are celebrating for 3 fathers... for my dearest Dad, Father-in-law, and my hubby. Today, we are having home-cooked dinner at my house. Well, i am not doing the oily cooking in the kitchen, all the dishes are prepared by my maid. My responsibility is for the after-dinner dessert. Haha!!....

After flipping my recipes for the whole night at Father's Day eve, i decided to do a healthy cake for them.... Carrot Cake , of course with my favorite Cream Cheese Frosting. 一举两得 !!

For the sake of parents and parents-in-law, i reduce the sugar very much to suit their taste and health. Therefore, this cake turn out not so sweet, but eating with the cream cheese is just nice!
