Lebanese Turmeric Cakes

This is the vegan adaptation of my amazing aunt’s recipe. Turmeric Cakes are incredibly easy to make; this is great to prepare with kids, or if it’s your first time baking!

Cakes that transport me right back home, whenever I need it.

Ingredients (27x15cm/10.5″x5.9″ pan)photo_2020-08-12_22-14-14

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 cups semolina
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsps Turmeric
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup plant milk (oat recommended)
  • 1 cup oil

Optional: some sesame seeds for the top



Preparation

  1. Heat oven 180C/356F
  2. Mix all ingredients until homogeneous it’s that simple! I’d recommend sifting the flour, and starting with the dry ingredients, followed by the wet ones.
  3. Pour into pan, sprinkle with pine nuts, sesame seeds, and/or peeled almonds, place on middle rack, and let bake for 30-35min. until golden.

 


Serving 

Let it cool for around 30 min. before serving.
