BATICA RECIPE / GOAN CHRISTMAS CAKE - BOLO DE RULAO

BAATH / BATICA RECIPE

Waiting for simple and easy yet outstanding cake recipe for Christmas? Then here is the recipe for a semolina COCONUT cake without flour(All purpose flour/ maida).This cake is also known as Bolo De Rulao (cream of wheat cake) which is commonly made during Christmas in every Goan households. This cake (Batica )has a dry texture like cornbread.  The batter of this cake must set aside overnight or for 10 hours at room temperature which makes this cake soft. Really this is a scrumptious cake. I highly recommend giving this cake a try.

PREPARATION

Here is the video showing how to make this Semolina coconut cake



  • Line the baking tray with butter paper and set aside ready.
  • Crush the freshly scraped coconut by pulsing it in a blender for a second or two (like crumbs). Add this crushed coconut to a bowl along with fine semolina, baking powder, and salt. Combine it well with a spoon (the mixture should resemble breadcrumbs). Set aside.
  • Now in a large bowl, add eggs(must be at room temperature). To this add sugar and beat until white and fluffy.
  • Then add vegetable oil and whisk again well. Now you can add cardamom powder (i skip this, but still it tastes perfect).
  • Now pour this egg mixture little by little into the semolina mixture. Fold it very well using a spoon or spatula. 
  • Now transfer it to the prepared baking tray and cover it with a foil paper. Keep it at room temperature overnight (10 hours) or at least 6 hours. 
  • Then remove the silver foil on the top of the pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 25 to 30 minutes or till brown and cooked through. (check with a toothpick, if it comes out clean when inserted then the cake is ready )
  • Remove from oven and let it cool to room temperature before demolding. 
  • Then take out the semolina cake off the butter paper and slice. Really it is a scrumptious cake. Must try this at least once in a lifetime.
