How to make Eggless Sooji Coconut Cake
Collect and measure all the ingredients.
Prepare the baking tin. I used a 8″ square cake tin. In order to avoid an oily bottom of the cake, spread some rice in the cake tin.
Then line the tin with a greased parchment paper. And preheat the oven to 180⁰C (160⁰C in case of convection/fan ovens).
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients i.e. 1 cup sooji, 1 cup maida, 1 cup desiccated coconut, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup curd, 1 cup milk, 1 cup oil, 1 tbsp baking powder and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Mix everything gently.
Pour the batter in the prepared cake tin.
Bake at 180⁰C (160⁰C in case of convection/fan ovens) for 35-40 minutes or till it’s done. Once it’s done let it cool and then de-mould it.
Let it cool completely.
Garnish with desiccated coconut and serve.
