Lebanese Cake



The texture and taste of this cake is very different from the other cakes I have made. And it’s definitely a healthier option as we use semolina in it and very less flour. This cake does take longer in the oven, but definitely worth the wait.


  • Semolina (Suji) – 1 1/2 cups 
  • Flour – 1/2 cup
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Baking powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Oil – 1/2 cup



  • Preheat the oven at 180C; and grease a baking tin
  • Sieve together semolina, flour, turmeric and baking powder and mix well
  • In a big bowl, combine milk and sugar and stir till the sugar is dissolved
  • Add the dry mixture and oil to it; beat with the electric mixer for 5 minutes on medium speed
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin
  • Bake for 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the centre comes out clean
  • Let it cool in the oven for 5 minutes before you take it out
  • Garnish with powdered sugar (optional)

And it’s ready to eat 🙂
