Butter Semolina Cake

Hope you guys had a wonderful xmas party,mine went absolutely fabulous and i was too excited to get almost every gift i wished to get, yep my Santa was simply awesome.Coming to this cake,this recipe was shared with us by Gayathri of Gayathri's Cook Spot for her Eggless baking group as am a part of this incredible homebakers. We prepared this cake as eggless cake and post for the month of October here. This time i tried again as a butter semolina cake with eggs coz my daughter loved the eggless version very much. This cake have raisins in it,this time i completely skipped it even my lil one who hates raisins enjoyed thoroughly this cake.

This super spongy cake goes for a flavourful topping mixture prepared with cinnamon powder,sugar and butter and this gives a wonderful aroma to the cake. Seriously this cake was bit airy and super spongy, an excellent dessert to serve with a spoon of caramel sauce and we had it for a xmas party dessert. Everyone enjoyed thoroughly each and every bite of this cake. This is my last post for this year's blogging marathon.Check out the other bloggers running this 23rd edition of blogging marathon here.Do check ChampaSrivalliSumana Deepak,Veena,Jayasri and Preeti Deo wat they baked for the 12th day of bake-a-thon.Sending to Show Me Your HITS-Festive Foods guest hosted by Roshni,event by Sangeetha.
