This is a cake made without flour,and has a

rich taste ,like Love cake (SriLankan).

As cashewnut powder is used in the making it

has an unique taste.

So i’m getting to the recipe rightaway.


250 gm butter

250 gm jaggery (grated)

250 gm cashewnuts.(powder half ,and keep the

other half chopped)

3/4 cup dessicated coconut

125 gm sugar

1.5 tsp.baking powder

2 tsp.vanilla

1/4 tsp.rose essence or rose water 1 tsp.

2 tsp.mixed spice powder

250 gm roasted semolina(rawa/sooji)

3/4 cup thick coconut milk

4 eggs.

1/4 tsp.powdered nutmeg

a pinch of salt


Add melted butter ,or soft room temperature butter to the rawa .

Mix well and add cashewnut powder,

dessicated coconut and grated jaggery.

Mix well and set aside.

Separate the egg yolks and the whites in

different bowls.

Beat egg yolks with the sugar,rest of the spices

and the baking powder.

Add to the the semolina mixture.

Beat egg whites stiff,and fold in with rest of the


Pour into a lined and greased  tray.

It’s better if you line the bottom first with

newspaper and use the butter paper.(to

prevent the bottom from getting burnt).

Bake at 160 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
