Strawberry & Banana Cake with semolina (rawa)

Baking is fun - Baking is passion - Baking is everything nice - Baking is indulgence - Baking............. well, you know I love baking. The oven, the heat, the batter, the dough, the process, the aroma and ofcorse not to forget the yummy goodies once out of the oven.
I have been baking banana bread with Semolina flour and All Purpose flour for sometime. Have been experimenting only with semolina - and I must say, the results are good and I am loving it.
I have tried a banana bread too with just semolina flour - shall update the recipe soon.
Here - I tired the famous smoothie combo - Banana & Strawberry in a cake form. My family liked it. 


1 ripe banana
7 to 8 strawberries
1/2 cup milk
1 cup fine semolina (rawa)
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter/oil/ghee
1/4 cup milk or 1 egg

Pit the strawberries and puree it with the peeled banana in a blender - do not add water. Mix the 1/2 cup milk, the 1 cup semolina and the strawberry banana puree and let it sit for about an hour.
In a mixing bowl, take 1/2 cup oil/butter/ghee and add 3/4 cup sugar and mix well. Now add the milk or egg and baking powder and mix everything well. Add the semolina mixture and fold everything in together very well. Do not overmix once you add the semolina mixture.
Add the batter into a greased baking pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 to 40 minutes. To check doneness, just insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.
Makes a loaf in 9X5 loaf pan or a flat bundt cake in a bundt pan (as I made mine)
