There is fun in the air, and nobody can resist a treat or two in the weeks leading up to Christmas! Here is yet another treat to enjoy, and share with your friends – to make the festival season even more special. This unique Eggless Semolina and Coconut Cake is made with rava instead of plain flour, which is usually the main ingredient in cakes. That gives this cake an enjoyably crumbly texture, which together with the flakiness of coconut makes the total effect mind-blowing. This recipe uses very little milk, so stick to the quantities mentioned, to get the batter consistency right.
