|Lebanese Turmeric Cake|
Fine yellow semolina - 1 & 1/2 cup
Maida / all purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 & 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
( i used peanut oil, you can skip butter and replace with 1/4 cup oil ,so total 1/2 cup oil)
Butter - 1/4 cup
Pine nuts to sprinkle on top
( I used chopped Brazilian nuts instead)
Thahini to grease the baking pan
( I replaced with peanut butter)
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add all the wet ingredients in another bowl and mix till sugar has dissolved.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients mixture and mix well till combined.
Grease a tray with thahini and pour this mixture into the pan and tap slightly.
Bake this cake at 375 deg F. for 30 minutes or till done.
Cool the cake completely and cut into desired shapes otherwise they will crumble and enjoy!
a) Buy semolina from a middle east store which is yellow in color, white rava may not work that great for making this cake, there are chances to crumble.
b) Cool completely and then cut the cake.
c) Each oven is different so temperature and baking time may vary.
