Use fine semolina for making this cake. If you cannot get fine rava/semolina, dry grind the regular rava for a few seconds in the mixie.

Before baking, preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes.

Break cashew nuts into small pieces. Set aside.

In a bowl, add rava, cardamom powder, powdered sugar, salt and mix well.

After  40 minutes

The consistency of the batter should be that of idli batter consistency. If it is too tight, add a little more milk and mix well.

Add baking soda, baking powder and mix until well combined. Add cashew nuts, tutti frutti, raisins (I used black ones) and fold gently.

Eggless Sooji Cake

Grease a baking tin with oil or ghee. Scatter few nuts, raisins, tutti frutti into the baking tray and then pour the prepared batter. Tap the tin lightly for the batter to settle evenly. Sprinkle some tutti frutti, raisins and nuts on the top.

Semolina Cake Recipe

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  I turned on the upper coil for last few minutes for browning the top of the cake.

Once done, remove it from the oven and leave it to cool. Then run a knife around the sides of the cake and invert it onto the plate. Cut the cake once it is completely cooled. 


Note - Do not prepare this cake without the tutti frutti, nuts and raisins as it is that which makes the cake special.

Bake the cake immediately after adding baking soda and baking powder.
