Semolina Carrot Cake recipe with step by step pictures – A simple and easy eggless cake. It is a delicous and healthy cake perfect tea partner or a healthy snacking.

Semolina also known as rava or suji/sooji is a great flour to make cake making the cake more healthier. The texture of this semolina carrot cake is extremely silky soft and dense, very close to pound cake but with a nice variation of using semolina flour instead of refined flour.

It is made of semolina flour and fresh grated carrot substituting the egg with curd. I have used brown sugar instead of refined sugar making it a more healthier version.

You may check my personal favourite whole wheat carrot cake which is healthy as well as tasty. I am sure you gonna love this one!

    1. Hi Sunitha, if cake is perfectly baked it will easily get demould without sticking to the pan..few reasons which lead to sticking cake to the pan are cake cooled too long in the pan after removing from the oven , cake not baked enough, not greased or dusted flour enough..hope I am able to clear your query

    1. Hi cake looking superb πŸ˜‹πŸ‘Œ. I am new to baking, have small doubt though my cake is moist, it is not raising on the top, it’s sinking and nuts also sinking in to bottom of cake. Can you please help me where I am ging wrong.. Tq😊

      1. Hi Vasusvegkitchen, always use fresh baking powder & soda, do not open the oven often or until the cake is half baked, do not overbeat the batter, use appropriate cake pan size ( it should not be too small nor too large) use the exact measurement the recipe calls for… I hope this helps ..Thank you so much for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚

      2. For the nuts sinking to the bottom pls coat the nuts with little flour and once added to the batter do not over mix just give a quick gently stir.
