Description

Sfouf is a Lebanese turmeric cake made from fine semolina, sugar, flour, ground turmeric, and milk. It's served with coffee or tea, and it's delicious.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups fine semolina
  • 1 cup flour (120 grams)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup canola oil (or any other vegetable oil)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • Dash of salt
  • Almonds/pine nuts for decorating (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ℉ (177 ℃).
  2. Start by mixing the semolina, flour, turmeric baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. 
  3. Add the milk and oil to the same bowl and make sure to mix everything really well until you get a blended batter. 
  4. Pour the batter into a greased square 9-inch brownie tin and place it into a pre-heated oven. 
  5. Bake at 350 ℉ (177 ℃) for 35 to 45 minutes. You'll know it's done when you insert a knife or chopstick and it comes out all clear.
