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.
