How to make Sooji Atta Cake

Everyone know India is in lock-down period, during that period my birthday is there, its on 30th march & I know that outside cake is not easily available at that moment. So for that I made this cake rava cake, why eggless because navaratre is also going on these days. Only rava is available in my pantry. I know I know all 3 situations happened with me during the time.

But no worries, my husband told me leave it not to bake anything, we'll see tomorrow if any cake shop is opened because he was not sure the taste of sooji cake 😜😃 I told him no no it's ok, I'll make that one too.

Earlier, I have tried rava cake with tutti frutti rava cake a long back, that will be with plain rava only...you can check it that also.

Once the cake is ready, cutting the cake, my husband ate 50% of the cake at that time only, I know its funny 😅😅but ya he was surprised by seeing the cake and the flavours too.Thanks god, I got some time to click all the photos. So all photos are on flash light,I was little depressed using the flash light. Let's go to the post.

Although cakes will be easily available in your nearby supermarkets or cake shops but the one’s you make yourself at home taste even sweeter. Be soft and gentle with them and they will be softer and more tasty !!!

You can keep it in a fridge for 5 days and before serve, just warm it in microwave for 10-20 seconds and enjoy!!
