I must admit that it was a goof up by me actually. After mixing wet ingredients I found that maida(all purpose flour) is nowhere.
So it was suji(semolina) and wheat flour which extended their humble hand to me. ” Behen hum hai na”! They cheered me up!
So I gave it a try and found that cake was 80% gulped by my students in one go. Now I took the charge and saved last 2-3 slices for me and started writing this recipe.
Do try if you never ever baked a cake with semolina and whole wheat flour. It is an eye opening experience indeed.
Ingredients (makes a medium loaf) with method –
1 Cup semolina (suji) fine quality
1/2 Cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp Baking powder
1/2 Tsp Baking soda
(Mix all these together in a big bowl)
1/2 Cup full fat milk with 1/4 cup drinkable water (not tap water)
Warm it on high in microwave for 1 minute.
Mix this hot water n milk mix in the dry ingredients very well and keep aside covered.
Turn the oven on 250 degrees.
Wet ingredients –
2 Eggs (Medium sized)
1/2 Cup refind oil or desi ghee(butter oil)
1 Tsp Orange essence
1 Cup powdered sugar(powdered only)
One orange’s skin grated (around 2 tbsps)Only orange part.
This orange’s juice strained(seeds removed)
Mix all these very well with a hand whisk.
Mix semolina mixture to this mixture. Whisk it well.
Pour it in a pan and slide it in oven.
Now change the temperature for 200 degrees.
Bake it for 35-40 minutes.
Let the oven bake it and take it out after baking done only. Let it be there for more 10-15 minutes when baking stops after 35-40 minutes.
Now take it out and scrape from the corners and keep this in fridge or cooling outside on kitchen counter covered.
Slice and serve later.
