Rava cake or suji cake is a different cake variation to sponge cakes and tutti frutti cake. This is made similar to regular cakes but with additional ingredients and this cake is made using rava as main ingredient.
As the name suggests it is a rava cake recipe, a cake made using suji/rava/sooji. I love making cakes and now I have mastered art in making cakes after making some of the baking stuff and cake recipes like pressure cooker cake, chocolate cake in pressure cooker, eggless chocolate cake recipe etc…
Generally, there are many many cakes that can be made and with so many different flavors… I am very keen to add many more cake recipes with different flavors for my blog readers.
Each cake recipe that I would be posting is definitely a tried and tested cake which has turned out soft and spongy.
We all love making moist cakes and making the right batter with right consistency gives a moist, soft and spongy cake.
Here rava/sooji is used as the main ingredient in making suji ka cake and it turned out amazing. When I started making cake recipes in pressure cooker I was scared to even give an attempt as I never had any experience in making baking stuff.
I started with sponge cake without oven as my first cake in pressure cooker. When it turned out amazing and a best watched video on youtube too, I developed more liking towards making various cakes.
I made few other cakes with videos too which I have already mentioned above and when they too started doing well I decided to make many more cakes as I keep doing baking related recipes.
I am fond of making cakes and hence decided to make another cake variation that is rava cake or semolina cake which has an amazing taste with a soft and spongy texture.
This cake is made using eggs and shall also be uploading and posting these cakes eggless as well.
Making cake is an art and once we master this art we enjoy making them.
Suji cake is made using rava, maida, eggs, sugar, yogurt, and some more baking stuff and it is not tough to make cakes in cooker or oven.
Making cakes in cooker or oven procedure is the same. The method of making batter for cakes in any cooking method is the same.
Important points in making a cake:
- Always grease the pan well with butter. Flouring is also very important to the pan.
- Greasing and flouring helps in removing the cake easily.
- The batter should not be too thin while making a cake in cooker.
- There are many kinds of cake pans easily available and every baking related stuff is also easily available online or in supermarkets.
- If eggs are used then, baking the cake well for 60 minutes is essential to get rid of the eggy smell.
- Over baking the cake makes the cake too dry.
- Never bake the cake on high flame.
Steps to remember while making cake in cooker:
- There should always be a medium between base of the cooker and the cake pan.
- The medium can be sand, salt or water.
- If we directly place the pan inside the cooker, cake might burn.
- Always use salt/sand inside the cooker and then place the pan over it.
Rava cake can be made using eggs or eggless and this is a cake made using eggs along with a video procedure.
