BM #83 Week 1 Day 2 - 

For today, I used a 1000 watt GE microwave as the appliance to make this eggless semolina cake.

If you have been following this series from yesterday,  you would understand that I am treating this series to be an experiment as I have never made a comparative analysis before. I will give my family's verdict on Day 3. So stay tuned.
I have made numerous types of mug cakes so I was fairly comfortable making this cake in the microwave.

My observations for the cake made in the microwave - 
-The taste of the cake was good in all of the appliances. Only the shape and texture were slightly different.
-The texture of the cake was good and properly cooked through.
-As with any microwave cake, the taste was best while still warm.

Ingredients - 

Semolina / Bombay Rava / Sooji 4 Tbsp
Milk 2 Tbsp 
Yogurt 2 Tbsp
Sugar 2 Tbsp
Vegetable Oil 1 1/2 tsp
Vanilla Essence couple drops
Almonds chopped 1 Tbsp + more for topping
Baking Powder 1/8 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add Sooji, milk, yogurt, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes.

Add in baking soda, baking powder and the chopped almonds. Gently mix until well combined.

Pour the batter into a greased coffee mug or a ceramic ramekin. Microwave it for a minute. 

Remove and microwave it for another 20 seconds and leave it in the microwave for a few more seconds.

Remove the ramekin from the microwave, run a knife along the edges and gently remove the cake from the ramekin.

Enjoy the cake while it is still warm.
