  • 1 cup fine semolina
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the semolina, sugar, baking powder, and salt. If using, add the lemon zest for an extra citrusy kick.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.
  4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a smooth batter forms. Make sure there are no lumps.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  8. Carefully transfer the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.
  9. Optionally, dust the top of the cooled cake with powdered sugar for a decorative touch.
  10. Enjoy your delicious semolina yogurt cake with a cup of tea or coffee, or serve it as a dessert with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
