Eggless Semolina Cake

Suji or semolina cake is light, healthy, and flavorful. When I cam across the recipe of suji cake for the first time, I was surprised that this fine form of wheat flour can be used to make cakes. I was on cloud 9, since I love cakes, but want to avoid maida or all-purpose flour at any cost. This recipe came to my rescue.
I have written many times about maida side effects and the reason why I do not pick unhealthy ingredients for baking or cooking of any form. You,too, should try to do so. After all, health comes first, isn't it?

why say no to maida

In my attempt to avoid maida, I tried this suji cake. Light & tasty, this eggless semolina
cake is good to go with your evening tea. Any baking plans for today?

if so, you have got to give this classic recipe a try! Simple, quick, and easy to bake, the suji cake can be made with easily available ingredients on the shelf. What more could you ask for?

This is a simple healthy cake recipe for beginners. In fact, it was my first attempt at making suji cakes. I must admit I was the happiest person on earth for having successfully baked a cake with semolina flour,which is certainly a healthier take on maida/all-purpose flour/white flour/refined flour.


Semolina Cake Recipe


1 cup suji/semolina (no need to roast, but if you want to use roasted suji, you can)
3 tbsp whole wheat flour.
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup yogurt/curd (I used curd)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp powdered green cardamom (elaichi)
A pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Chopped almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts (I added almonds)

Preparation

Mix semolina, b. powder and baking soda. Add salt.
Mix oil and sugar. Whisk well. It should be fluffy.
Add curd and milk to the wet ingredients.
Mix the dry with wet ingredients.
Add chopped nuts.
Mix well but gently. Grease a baking tin. Pour the batter into the bowl and bake at 175 degrees C for 20-25 minutes. It may take longer, depending on the amount used and oven type. I made in Microwave convection mode.
Once done, let the cake cool completely and place onto a cooling rack. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea!

You can make it on gas burner by taking a cooker and putting 2 cups of salt/ sand in it. Place a rack or stand over the sand/salt and then keep the baking bowl above it. Cover the cooker with its lid, with whistle removed.

Bake on a low flame for 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on it.
