Number of serving: 8
Semolina (fine variety ) - 2 cups

Sugar – 1cup (powdered)

Butter - ½ cup

Eggs - 2

Milk - ½ cup

Baking powder – 1 tsp

Baking Soda - ½ tsp

Salt - a pinch

Cashew nut – ¼ to ½ cup (chopped)

Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

For the syrup:

Sugar - 1 cup

Honey - ½ cup

Water - 1 cup

Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 180 deg C and prepare your cake tin (grease with butter / oil and dust it with all purpose flour); keep aside.

    Mix together semolina, baking powder, baking soda, salt and keep aside.

    Beat sugar and butter till it becomes fluffy and light.

    Add eggs one by one and beat it thoroughly. Then add vanilla essence and milk. Mix well.

    Mix the semolina mixture into the wet mixture and beat on medium speed until mixed thoroughly.

    Pour batter into the greased cake tin and bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a cake comes out clean (temperature may vary for different ovens).

    While the cake is baking, make the syrup: Combine the sugar, honey, and water, and stir with a fork to dissolve some of the sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to make sure the sugar and honey dissolve. Lower the heat slightly and simmer for 5 minutes, until the syrup has thickened.
  • As soon as you take the cake out of the oven, pour the syrup slowly over the hot cake, stopping when the cake can absorb no more syrup. Cool, cut into your desired shape and serve.
