Semolina Banana Bread (Eggless)

have been experimenting baking banana bread with semolina flour. Finally got the recipe right and loved the outcome.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups fine semolina (rawa)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup oil.ghee/butter
3 ripe bananas
1 cup sugar (you can make it 3/4 cup to make it a little less sweet - I did that)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1/2 cup coconut flakes/coarse powder (optional)


Method

Warm the milk a little  and add the semolina to it and mix well. Let this mixture sit for about 2 hours. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas well and add the sugar and the oil/ghee/butter and mix. Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder and mix well till everything is formed into an incorporated mixture. Now fold in the semolina and milk mixture and form a cake batter. Do not overmix.
Pour batter into a greased baking dish (9X5 loaf pan) and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes. The toothpick test to see doneness - inset a toothpick int he middle of the cake, if it comes out clean, your cake is done.
Cool it on a wire rack and enjoy for breakfast or snack or as a dessert.

Didn't have time to soak the semolina, so just mixed dry ingredients and wet. Turned out really great! Light and fluffy and flavourful :)
