 Let's talk about this simple sooji cake. This eggless cake in cooker is special, because I baked it on dad's birthday. The best part is it got a beautiful golden crust and top and was loved by one and all. The birthday boy, who usually abstains from baked goodies, had two slices. Could I be happier?

Let's come back to the suji cooker cake recipe. Yes, I love baking with suji, because it is a healthier ingredient to maida or white flour.

  • Dry roast semolina for a yummier cake.

  • Experiment with other ingredients of your choice.
  • Enjoy a healthier cake with suji.
  • Add nuts or tooty fruity or chocolate chips for a kid-friendly cake with semolina or rava.
Easy Semolina Cake Recipe: Ingredients
1 cup- dry roasted suji/semolina (got this idea from my dear friend Anna)
1/4 cup- whole wheat flour
3 tbsp- dry milk powder (to enhance flavor - you may skip if you do not have)
1/4 cup- malai/cream (for a lighter version, use any other vegetable oil/olive oil)
1/2 cup- curd
5 tbsp - sugar powder (more or less as per your taste preference...I take it less sweet)
Roasted nuts
Pinch of salt
1 tsp- vinegar or apple cider vinegar or lime juice
3/4 tsp- baking powder
1/4 tsp- baking soda
cardamom powder or nutmeg powder or any other flavoring agent of your choice.


How to Bake A Suji Cake in Cooker

  1. Dry roast suji. Allow it to cool down.
  2. Mix with milk powder, salt, and cardamom powder. Keep aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk curd, malai, and sugar powder.
  4. Mix wet and dry ingredients.
  5. Do not add baking soda or powder yet.
  6. Keep the mixture aside for 30 minutes. I kept it longer - 2 hours.
  7. Add baking powder and baking soda and add apple cider vinegar over them.
  8. Mix everything well. If you think the dough is dry, add 1-2 tbsp of water. Ideally this is a very thick dough, unlike the runny batter. Keep it thick.
  9. Meanwhile, heat a cooker and grease a thick bottom steel pan or baking bowl that can fit in within your cooker.
  10. Else you may place a plate in the cooker and keep the baking bowl atop.
  11. Mix roasted nuts with the dough.
  12. Pour the batter/dough into the pan. Pat it well 2-3 times to evenly distribute the batter.
  13. Place the baking pan inside the cooker.
  14. No need for salt or sand.
  15. Cover the cooker with its lid without the whistle.
  16. Bake on high flame for 5 mts.
  17. Then reduce the flame to low and keep it the same for 25-35mts.
  18. Keep an eye on your suji cake.
  19. Allow it to sit in the vessel for 5-10 mts once done.
  20. Take the baking bowl out of the cooker and allow it cool down before removing your suji cake.
  21. Cut once the cake has cooled down completely.
  22. Enjoy healthy tea time suji cake. Perhaps these are healthy bites that you will love. 
Here's another baking tip from my dear friend Anna, who is a cake expert herself:

    1. Thank you dear. Do not forget to use a heavy bottomed vessel for baking..if you use a thin steel pan, the cake bottom might burn. Else, place a plate beneath the baking bowl and then bake. Hope that helps.

  2. Can we use butter instead of malai?

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
