Semolina (rava) Cake
This is the easiest cake you can ever bake and it makes a great snack for the kids!! They surely would love it!!
1 cup semolina (rava)
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk (thick)
1 tbsp melted unsalted butter (ghee)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp nutmeg powder
1/2 cup sliced almonds and cashews
2-3 drops of yellow/orange food color (optional)
Mix all the above ingredients thouroughly and let them stand for around 4-5 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch cake pan with butter and pour the mixture into it. Bake for around 20-25 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. The cake usually bakes in the given time, overbaking results into hardening of the sides of the cake. Let it cool for around 10-15 mins. Serve it with tea!!
