Sooji Cake/Semolina cake

Thali sweet & Sooji cake are some of  my Mom's most popular cakes .She's really makes them  very well  .I grew up eating this.No birthdays,feast or parties were completed without this.My cousins & neighbours use to wait eagerly to come home to wish us especially on feast days as they knew they would get to taste mom's cake they just love this cake. Its a soft yummy cake which is easy to make ..If you wish you could add coconut powder as well but we like it this way.



Ingredients:
  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 3/4th cup fine rava/semolina/sooji
  • 1/2 cup (100gms ) butter 
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 -1.5 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda.
Method:
  • Grease the cake tin and line it with parchment paper.
  • Sift the flour with baking powder and soda.
  • Mix the softened butter with sugar in a bowl and beat till creamy.
  • Beat the eggs and mix in with the butter and sugar.
  • Now add the rava ,milk, essence & the sifted flour.
  • Let the batter sit for 30 -45 min .this is done so the rava/semolina swells up.
  • Then pour it in the prepared cake tin and bake in preheated oven at 180 degree for 35-40min or until done.

Note:
If you like you could ad 1/2 cup coconut powder mixed in 3 tbsp coconut milk rest ingredients and method remain the same .

  18. No there's no need to stir as such.. But if you want you can stir and then pour it in the cake tin.

    1. hi....you lessen the amount of powdered sugar to 3/4 to 1 cup if u feel its very sweet..yes the butter used is more than the flour hence the cake is moist...regarding cake sinking ..at what temp did u preheat & bake? did you open the oven while the cake was baking..what was the oven rack position?sometimes even if the baking powder is too old it sinks ...did your skewer come clean ?can you mail me in details please gloriafrns@gmail.com..
