Delicious Rava Cake | Semolina Cake

Rava Cake

How to make Rava Cake?

Baking is Bliss!! It is so much fun to prep up for cakes or cookies and then watch them bake. The excitement never ends and the aroma of these bakes just makes you happier. Today I’m sharing my recipe for Semolina Cake or Rava Cake.

Semolina Cake is a very simple yet delicious cake and best part it it has very little maida. If you want to avoid using maida or all purpose flour you can definitely skip it. This one makes an amazing tea time cake. I enjoy the brown crust in all my cakes, it just tastes so wow and I can’t stop nibbling on it. You can prepare this cake even for your kitty parties or serve a slice for breakfast, you’ll love it all the time. Sweet and perfectly soft and spongy prepared using rava, curd and milk with flavouring of mixed fruits and baked to perfection!!

Rava Cake | Semolina Cake Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 1 cup rava/semolina
  • 1/4th cup maida (optional)
  • 1/4th cup curd
  • 3/4th cup milk 
  • 2 drops of essence of choice
  • Pinch of salt (skip if you’re using salted butter)
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • In a bowl, whisk butter and sugar till creamy and fluffy. 
  • Add curd and half of the milk and continue to whisk
