1/2 cup of Castor Sugar
3 Eggs separated
1 cup Semolina
1 tsp Baking Powder (if you don't have any, you can make a batch by mixing 2tsp cream of tartar + 1tsp baking soda + 1tsp Corstarch)
1 Cup Ground Almonds
1tbsp Vanilla Essence
1 rind of an Orange
Optional : If you prefer, you can omit the orange rind and replace with Cinnamon powder (1/2 tsp). 1/4 cup of Pine nuts if you like more texture in your cake.
Butter the pan. I'm using an 8" square pans because I'll be cutting them into bite size morsels.
Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Set aside.
In goes the semolina flour + baking powder.
Yummy! Look at the texture. I have these cut into bite size pieces and placed them on cupcake liners. I would recommend using the waxed cupcake liners, since semolina cakes are a little buttery than your normal cakes. Mini doily paper works fine too.
