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.
Let me know if you try it, tweak it, hate it or love it!
Ingredients (27x15cm/10.5″x5.9″ pan)
- 1 cup flour
- 3 cups semolina
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tbsps Turmeric
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup plant milk (oat recommended)
- 1 cup oil (any non-savory)
- 3 tsps baking powder
Optional: some sesame seeds for the top
- Heat oven 180C/356F
- Mix all ingredients until homogeneous… it’s that simple! I’d recommend sifting the flour through, and starting with the dry ingredients, followed by the wet ones.
- 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.
Let it cool for around 30 min. before serving.
I really hope you have fun preparing this one. Please do not hesitate to DM me on IG or email me if you have any questions of trouble in the process !!
