Coconut Sugee/Soogi Cake ./Coconut Semolina Cake

I love sugee cakes  just love the soft moist texture this cake has and so keep experimenting with it..We have been making this cake since many years still we love it each time we make..I have already posted two sugee cakes before and all three are entirely different the first one is mom's sooji /sugee next one is with sugee cake with almonds and this one is with coconut...Coconut, sugee are two ingredients which give this cake a lovely flavour and texture..its soft, buttery ,moist and very delish perfect as a tea cake too .I made this yesterday since I'm going to meet my dear cousins  today and they just love  homemasde cakes ..I baked two cakes one in 9 '' pan and one in the small loaf tin which I kept for home.


3 cups flour
3/4 th cup sooji
200 gms  butter softened
4 eggs
2 cups dessicated coconut
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups milk
2 tbsp milk *
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rose essence
1tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder


Grease the cake tin and line it with parchment paper and preheat the oven for 10 min at 180 degree celsius.
Mix the dessicated coconut in the milk and keep aside for 30 min.
Sift the flour ,sugee,baking powder and baking soda and keep aside.
In a large bowl whisk the butter and  sugar till  creamy and fluffy  .
Add in eggs one at the time and continue beating it ...
Beat till its smooth and creamy.
Add the coconut- milk mixture and beat for 2-3 min.
Now add vanilla extract and mix.
Fold in the flour -sugee and mix well.
Add 2 tbsp milk *if needed.
Keep aside for 15-20 min.
Pour it in the prepared tin and bake for 50 -60 min at 180 degree celsius.
