What is eggless rava cake?

Eggless rava cake is a simple and delicious sponge cake made using rava or semolina. Tutti frutti gives a very colorful and appealing look to the cake. It also enhances the flavors of the cake. Eggless rava cake is simple to make and is a healthier take on the sponge cakes.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for eggless rava cake

As the name suggests rava or semolina is used to make this cake. A small portion of all-purpose flour is also added which helps the cake to build its texture. I like to use fine quality of sooji. For the flavoring, I have added tutti frutti and pineapple essence. Do not skip to flavor the cake otherwise it won’t taste good. I have used yogurt in the recipe. Fresh yogurt has been used. Make sure it is not sour otherwise the taste of the cake won’t be good.

How to make Eggless Rava Cake

1. Whisk curd : Add ½ cup yogurt in a mixing bowl. Whisk well so that it becomes smooth and lump free. Yogurt should be at room temperature.


2. Add powdered sugar and oil and mix : Add ¾ cup powdered sugar and ½ cup oil. Mix well till the oil is blended. You may increase the quantity of sugar up to 1 cup.


3. Add semolina and all-purpose flour and whisk : Add 1 and ½ cup semolina and ½ cup all purpose flour. Mix it.


4. Add half milk and mix and let it rest for 15 minutes : We are using ¾ cup of milk in this recipe. Add half of the milk in the batter. Mix it. It will be a thick batter. Leave the batter to rest for 15-20 minutes.


5. After 15 minutes add remaining milk and remaining ingredients : After 15 minutes, rava would have absorbed the moisture and thicken. Add in the remaining milk. Add 1 tbsp tutti frutti (i.e. half of the total quantity), ½ tsp pineapple essence, 1 tsp baking powder, and ¼ tsp baking soda. Fold in everything.


6. Bake at 160 for 30 minutes : Pour the batter in a greased cake pan. Bake at 180°C (160° in case of a convection oven or fan oven) for 25-30 minutes or till it is done. Once done take it out of the oven and once it cools de-mold it.


7. Bon appétit : Cut eggless rava cake and serve

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
