Baath Cake - Goan Semolina & Coconut Cake~~My Guest Post for Priya

Guest posting, love the friendship behind this. This baath cake is my 8th guest post i prepared specially for one of my blogger buddy aka one of my virtual sister Priya of  Cook Like Priya.

Christmas is one of the festival we never failed to celebrate here, the chilled weather of december gives a wonderful festive mood and every year we wait eagerly for this festival.

When Priya asked me something christmassy, initially i want to make a christmas special bread from Europe. Finally after many hesitation,i went for an Indian christmas cake.I usually bake the famous plum cake,somehow i dont want to reproduce the same for this guest post. I know Goan makes many traditional christmas special bakes every year and Baath cake is among them.

Coming to this Baath cake,this cake is prepared with freshly grated coconut and semolina, with less butter this cake goes for an easy breezy preparation. With a wonderful texture,this cake tastes fabulous and melt in mouth.Goans prepared this cake traditionally in clay oven for every christmas and definitely this cake have its own place in every home during christmas.


Even blogging is a virtual world, am blessed to get a decent number of wonderful friends.I can say that Priya R of Cook Like Priya is one among them, she is a very friendly food blogger, fabulous photographer. I started chitchatting with her after we joined a monthly baking event.She shares wonderful traditional dishes to mindblowing bakes with her own touch,eventhough i have numerous favourites in her space my recent favourite post of her is this Choco Beet Cake.


3 nos Eggs
1 cup Semolina (fine quality)
2 cups Grated fresh coconut
1+1/2 cups Sugar
3 tbsp All purpose flour
1 tbsp Corn flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking powder
3 tbsp Butter (room temperature)
1 tbsp Vanilla essence
1/2 cup Warm water
Few dry fruits

Beat the eggs till they turns fluffy and add the butter to it,beat again for few minutes.

Grind the grated coconut with warm water to make a thick coarse paste.

In an another bowl, take the semolina,all purpose flour,baking powder,cornflour,salt and sugar and mix well.

Now add the grounded coarse coconut paste,beaten eggs gradually to the dry ingredients.Mix everything well with a spatula.

Cover it and keep the above mixture for 8 hours in room temperature (if the climate is chilled) or over night for best results.

If the climate is hot, cover this cake batter and keep in fridge for 8 hours or overnight, remove an hour earlier to bring it at room temperature before baking. Finally add the vanilla essence and give a stir.

Preheat the oven to 170C. Transfer the cake batter to a well greased round or square mold. Top it with dry fruits. Bake for 30-35 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Your Baath Cake is ready.
