BAATH CAKE (SEMOLINA & COCONUT CAKE)



This is another goan sweet apart from the Bebic. Its delicious and very easy to make.

250 gms semolina
250 gms sugar
500 gms freshly grated coconut

3 eggs
100 gms unsalted softened butter (room temperature)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
45 gms water


Grind the coconut in 45 gms of water. now add the semolina, egg, sugar, butter, baking powder and vanilla essence. Mix it well and let is sit for 4-5 hours.

Cut the foil or butter paper and line the cake cake tin (2x5) . Now grease it with butter and pour the mixture in the pan. Preheat the oven and set it on 200 degrees centigrade and let the cake bake for 1 hour. To test if the cake is baked just peirce the sharp side of the knife untill the deep and if the knife comes out clean its done. The sides will brown well. Once done put off the bottom flame and burn the top flame keep the oven open and let the top brown slightly. Remove and cool. YUM YUM.........................

Hi, I just prepared the batter and now have kept it to set. I have a microwave oven on which I bake cakes on the convection mode, will the baking process remain the same in the microwave? will i have to keep it for an hour?
