Craving for indulgent desserts that won’t go straight from the lips to the hips? It’s hard to resist sweet temptations especially since we have all worked so hard to maintain our summer body diet.

Baked KL is a home-based online bakery that began as a hobby for sisters Iza and Izi Sallehuddin. It began as an ode to their mother’s baked goods that has now grown to become one of Malaysia’s best healthy dessert makers.
It was a chance discovery when Baked KL started offering their gluten free chocolate and almond Madagascar Brownies that led to them embracing the idea of making guilt-free cakes and desserts for everyone to enjoy.
Baked KL currently offers non vegan, non gluten free cookies and whoopie pies, vegan cookies and cakes, gluten free brownies and baby friendly cakes. With their diet-friendly range of desserts, this is a welcoming treat for those who are trying to lose the extra pounds for summer or maintain their summer body without foregoing their sweet cravings.
Looking for a diabetic-friendly cake, a keto diet cake or a special order dessert? Baked KL also provides customised cakes and desserts and will work with you to create what you need.
Baked KL’s free-from products uses coconut sugar, dates and other natural ingredients, all freshly baked to order. The ingredients used for each item is clearly listed on their website. Please note that all gluten free and vegan baked goods are baked in a home kitchen space which contains nuts, dairy, flour and other products that may contain gluten. Baked KL is not Gluten Free Certified, however they do their best in preventing cross contamination. Baked KL’s gluten free baked goods are suitable for those with gluten sensitivity and not recommended for those with celiac disease or other serious cases.
It is rather hard to come across baby-friendly cakes in Malaysia and BakedKL has created a range of flavours that appeals to babies, kids and adults. You can select Carrot Cake, Strawberry Banana Cake, Chocolate Orange Cake and even a Funfetti Cake covered with sprinkles!
Their baby friendly cakes contain no nuts, dairy, eggs and refined sugar and you have the option to make it gluten-free as well. The most surprising part of the baby friendly cake is that they’re made with tofu minus the taste of tofu. The texture of the baby cake is denser than your usual cakes. However, the cake melts in the mouth and is safe for your baby to consume. This baby friendly cake is perfect for celebrating a baby’s first birthday without the parental guilt of feeding your baby their first taste of cake filled with sugars and preservatives. It is also a perfect cake for toddlers’ and kids’ birthday parties.
As we love all things summery and tropical, we tried the baby friendly Vegan Carrot Cake with a natural purple coloured frosting. This lovely cake was full of shredded carrots and covered with a deliciously tropical coconut whipped cream and toasted coconut. It’s summer in a bite!
To make your very own Vegan Carrot Cake, here’s an exclusive Baked KL recipe for you try at home:
VEGAN CARROT CAKE
2 cups + ½ cup of flour
125g plain tofu
3 cups grated carrots
Coconut whipped cream
You can get Nature’s Charm Coconut Whipped Cream and whip the frosting as per directions given. Frost the cake up to your liking and serve immediately.
Alternatively, you may use coconut cream or coconut milk. You will need to chill the coconut cream/milk overnight in the fridge. Scoop the hardened coconut cream minus the remaining liquid into the mixing bowl. Whip until light peaks form and frost the cake up to your liking and serve immediately.
1. Preheat the oven at 170’c and line your pans with parchment paper.
2. Sift all flour ingredients together and mix well in a bowl.
3. Combine crumbled tofu, water, oil, vinegar and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
4. Transfer the the tofu mixture in a mixer and gradually add the dry ingredients in. Do not overmix. Gently fold in the grated carrots.
