Rawa Cake (Semolina cake)


I have fond memories associated with this cake, my grandmother and mother used to bake this one when we were kids and we used to love the simplicity of this cake. No baking in the oven or microwaves (of course we didn't have one at that time), Simple but yet very tasty and delicious. My grandmother baked these a few times on our birthday and used to decorate this with icing sugar and butter and she did a great job then. She also added a lot of candid fruits (home-made dried orange peels) and some times gave it a marble effect just by adding some cocoa powder into it while baking.We used to have this cake with cold milk and relish it! Now a days microwave/oven has become skeleton of our kitchen. At least I cannot think my life without one. Here's the recipes for baking on both oven /gas stove! Enjoy

Ingredients
1 cup Rawa (Barik rawa)
1 cup buttermilk
¾ cup sugar
1 pinch of salt
2 drops of vanilla essence
1 pinch baking soda
2 pinch baking powder
Method
Mix all the above ingredients excluding the baking soda & powder and keep aside for 2 hours
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place a rack in center of oven.
grease a baking tray & Add the baking soda & powder into this batter and pour it into the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean

Baking on a gas stove
Mix all the above ingredients excluding the baking soda & powder & keep aside for 2 hrs.
grease a aluminum tray, add the baking soda & powder into this batter and pour it into the baking tray and keep the tray on frying pan (or tava) and cover with a heavy plate(or tava) (so that heat is evenly spread)
bake on low flame for 30-45 minutes
you will know the cake is done after you start getting the smell of the cake. Also try inserting a toothpick if it comes out clean the cake is done. Allow it to cool before cutting it into pieces.
