Both my kids R2 and R3 have a sweet tooth and love eating cakes. They are not too fond of candies and hence i try to prepare cake at home as much as possible. One of the primary reasons being I know what i am using in the recipe for the cake and know that it does not have any preservatives or ingredients that may not be good for health. We just had a looong weekend.. I say looong as we did not have any plans as my hubby dearest was preparing for his certifications. studying for his exams. Having R3 at home is always handful and I have to find ways to keep them engaged. I wanted to make something for my sweet loving kids and ended up making this cake. I say making as this recipe does NOT need baking... Yes you heard it right. This recipe does not need baking. No more excuses like I don't have an oven, i don't have a pressure cooker and even I don't know how to bake :-) . Go ahead and try the Carrot Semolina Steam Cake out. Do also try one of our favorite Mango Semolina Cake and Dry Fruits Semolina Cake made in a pressure cooker
Carrot is one of my absolute favorite ingredients and I love mixing it in my recipe to ensure that my kids can have their veggies. With R3 at home, I knew that I wanted to make something quick, simple, and something that comes together in one bowl with minimal effort. We have had a lot of readers reach out and asked us how they could make a cake if one does not have a OVEN ? Well this is the one of the ways you can do it :-)!!
If you are lazy and don't wanna remove you mixer or the excuse of Oh I am not good at baking ;) ,Well get ready to bake COZ It is a simple, one-bowl, foolproof cake recipe.
The END result is this moist, flavorful, carrot cake that is bright and easy to make! The combination of flavors is right up my alley. This recipe is an easy way to sneak in some veggies into your kids and yourself :P. And if you tell the kids they are eating cake, then who could say no to that! Remember that these can be eaten hot or cold. If you want a gluten free version, just use coconut flour instead of Semolina!
This is an easy and fluffy Carrot semolina steam cake which takes no time to cook. It makes for great baby food, kids snacks or just when you need something to satisfy your sweet tooth :P
