A Slice of Vegan Sooji/Semolina Cake
The Baked Semolina/Sooji cake with one portion sliced
Sooji or Semolina is also known as Farina and Cream of Wheat. It is a very useful wheat product that is used in a variety of recipes, both sweet and savory.
I had been experimenting with a Sooji cake a few weeks ago. Co-incidentally I received a request for a Sooji cake from a viewer of this website. Well, that spurred me on to work out a recipe. After a few trials I think this recipe works.
The cake is vegan, no dairy product is used. The cake is also egg-less. I have used coconut milk, the canned variety. In case you are not sure what that looks like, here is a link where you can view the, Can of Coconut Milk

* If you prefer to use regular milk please do so. If you do want to use coconut milk, do not get the light version. Choose the brands that are available in your location but make sure that it has at least 14g. of fat content.
If you are limiting your sugar intake, please substitute the sugar for the product you use to replace sugar.
