Eggless Semolina cake

    This simply moist and soft looking cake is not like any other cake, it has no eggs or flour, so it is a healthier option than any regular cakes. The main ingredient of this cake is semolina or suji, which is a by-product of wheat. It's quick and very easy to make, need no elaborate preparation. I tried this for first time and became fan of it. Surprisingly, one of my kid who is a very choosy cake eater, he loved it so much and asking me every day to make it again. It can be a very healthy add-on in your kid's lunch box or as a after school snack. 




You Need :
Semolina/Suji : 1 and 1/2 cup
Coconut : 1/2 cup or more
Sugar : 1 and 1/4 cup, powdered
Plain yogurt/dahi : 1 cup
Milk : 2/3 cup
Vegetable oil : 1/2 cup
Baking Soda : 1 tblsp.
Vanilla essence : 1 tblsp.
Assorted nuts : 1/2 cup chopped (walnuts, cashews or almonds) [optional]


How To :
  • In a bowl, take sugar and yogurt. Stir to mix them so that sugar dissolves fully. Then add suji/semonlina, coconut, oil and all the other ingredients one at a time and mix properly. Do not overmix. 
  • Then set aside the bowl for at least an hour so that semolina can soak up all the moisture before baking.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 180C. Grease your baking pan with butter or oil and then pour the semolina mixture into the pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. 
  • Let it cool completely before you slice it.
  • Can be a great accompaniment with evening tea/coffee.


Try this effortless cake at home and I guarantee you'll be hooked to it. I made twice in one week, that much addictive this cake is. Let me know whenever you try it...........

  6. Lata Gautam, as it is an eggless cake, curd is must to moisten the cake, If your son is dairy allergic, you should add about 2-3 eggs and avoid adding any milk and curd..will come out an excellent cake, try and let me know how it came out
