Semolina Coconut Cake (Egg less)

Ingredients to make Semolina Coconut Cake (Egg less)

  • Syrup- 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon rosewater
  • Cake - 2 cups fine semolina
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 stick (100gms) butter
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 10-12 almonds halved

How to make Semolina Coconut Cake (Egg less)

  1. Syrup- Take water, sugar and lemon juice in a thick bottomed pan. Bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and add rose water. Let cool.
  2. Cake- Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease and line a 7 inch x 7 inch rectangular cake pan.
  3. Cream butter and sugar. Whisk together semolina and baking powder.
  4. Add semolina mix to butter sugar mixture. Add milk and stir. Fold in the desiccated coconut.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and level it with a spoon. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Score the batter into 1 inch square with a sharp knife. Place one almond half in each square.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top and sides are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven. Remove from the pan after 10 minutes.
  9. Cut the cake along the lines you scored. Pour cold syrup onto the hot cake. Let the cake sit for two hours before serving.

My Tip:

Syrup adds flavour and makes the cake juicy. Syrup should be enough to dunk the cake. Semolina grains swell up and the slices become soft and moist.

The cake looks yum.. I will definitely try this.. But I have a question Namita. Why do we have to let the batter sit for 10 minutes in the back of no tin pan (point 5)? I am not able to understand its importance.
