I’ve been relishing on Iyengar Bakery’s Rava cake since a while. Thought to give it a try at home. And it turned out to be really nice. Munched on it as evening snacks with a nice ginger – cardamom (Adrak – Elaichi) tea. Add on was that my kiddo loved it too.
1 cup Rava / Suji/ Semolina (Roasted)
1/4 cup Maida / All purpose flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter (beaten and made soft) / or homemade Ghee
1 cup fresh curd
1 cup milk
1/2 cup tutti frutti
1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp vanilla essence
Rava Cake Recipe Method
Soak Roasted rava in milk, keep aside for 10 minutes.
beat butter / ghee and powdered sugar until it becomes smooth.
Add curd and mix it well.
Now add soaked Rava, maida, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla essence and mix gently.
Add tutti fruity.
Grease a microwave safe cake mould with ghee / butter. (I don’t have a cake mould so I use a microwave safe bowl)
Pour the mixture and tap a little so that the mixture will come at a same level. add some more tutti frutti for garnishing.
Select the cake option in the automatic conviction Microwave. And set time for 4 people.
Keep the bowl inside. Let it bake for a while. (it showed 8 minutes for 4 people’s quantity.)
after 4-5 minutes cover the bowl with lid and let it bake again. My microwave had stopped automatically after 8 minutes so I had to repeat it for next 6-7 minutes.
Check the cake by inserting a toothpick or knife. If it comes out clear then the cake is done.
Remove it and keep it on kitchen rack for 10-15 minutes. Let it cool down.
Remove it in a plate and cut into slices.
PS: The cake baking time can defer Microwave to Microwave as mine having an auto cook mode and cake mode can be selected.
You can add 2 ripe bananas and decrease butter a little bit for smoother texture.
You also can add fresh cream to the batter, it gives nice texture to any cake and works like condensed milk.
