Looking for a simple and easy cake recipe to try your hands at baking? But don't have an oven? No worries. Read this article to bake your cake at home and that too without an oven…. Yes, you read it right, you can make this simple Rawa cake using your tawa.
This is the most simplest of the cake recipes and all the ingredients are easily available at home.
Ingredients for the Rawa Cake
Fine Semolina / Suji / Rawa – 1 Cup
Plain Yoghurt/Curd – ¾ Cup
Milk – ½ Cup (you can add little more if required)
Sugar – ¾ Cup
Tutty Fruity or Raisin (whichever you prefer or you may add both) – 4 tsp
Vanilla Essence – ½ tsp
Baking Powder – ¾ tsp
Baking Soda – ½ tsp
Ghee – 5 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Water – ¼ cup
In a large bowl mix the Semolina, Yoghurt, salt and Milk together.
To this add 2-3 tsp of the ghee out of the 5 tsp and keep the rest for later use. Also add ½ cup of sugar and keep the remaining for later use.
Consistency will be like a dosa batter. Keep this mixture aside for 2 hours.
After 2 hours add the baking soda, baking powder, tutty fruity and/or raisin and vanilla essence and mix it.
Grease a heavy bottom pan (I used a heavy bottom aluminum kadhai) with ghee and pour the cake mixture and spread it evenly.
Now cover this vessel with a lid and place it on a tawa over low flame for 10-15 minutes.
After 10-15 minutes prick a toothpick or a clean and dry knife into the cake to check if its done. If the cake is ready the knife or toothpick will come out clean. If it is still a little undone keep for another 5 minutes and check again.
Your kitchen will be filled with sweet aroma by now. When done turn the flame off.
You had kept aside some sugar and ghee for later. Now is the time to use it.
Mix the remaining ¼ cup sugar with ¼ cup water and the remaining ghee and heat it water. Once the water comes to a boil pour this mixture over your freshly baked cake evenly and keep it aside. Let the cake cool down completely.
This process makes the cake moist inside. If you add the all the sugar and ghee in the cake mixture the cake becomes a little dry.
Now what? Cut it and enjoy… if possible share with others.
