Rava Cake Recipe

Written By Angela Steffi on Thursday, May 11, 2017 | 11:04:00 AM

Rava Cake / Sooji Cake is a simple and very easy cake recipe which can be made with few ingredients. We don't need any electric beater just a spoon or a wire wish is just fine. This is an eggless version of making rawa cake. I have used yogurt as a replacement for eggs however if you like to add eggs then we can skip yogurt and add 2 eggs. Added tutti frutti and nuts gives extra taste to the cake.
