Eggless Sooji Cake

I tried this sooji (semolina) cake at one of my friend’s house. I loved it !! She cooks it on a tava (griddle). As I do not have a baking pan which can be used on a tava, I have created a recipe which uses an oven instead. This cake tastes yummy and you can create all sorts of variations by using pineapple or rose essence.

I have used room temperature butter so that it will gets mixed very well. Use butter paper in the pan. It helps to remove the cake without breaking it.
