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.
This is a lovely way of adding vegetables to your child’s diet and it taste really great and delicious. I have a savoury version of semolina cake loaded with vegetables. You can try this Savoury Semolina Cake I am sure you will love it as much as I do. You can also try Semolina Mango Cake or save it and keep for the mango season which will be knocking soon 😉
