  • 1 cup fine semolina
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional, for extra flavor)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, and vegetable oil. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Add the semolina to the mixture and stir until smooth.
  4. Mix in the baking powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, lemon zest (if using), and a pinch of salt. Continue to mix until everything is evenly incorporated.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it 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. 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 sprinkle of powdered sugar on top.

This recipe yields a moist and flavorful cake that’s sure to become a favorite in your repertoire. Enjoy!
