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
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
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
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 ingredients.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.
