Eggless Coconut Rava Cake is yet another variation of the most popular recipe from the blog Rava Cake.


And why do I say yet another?? Well, because I have already made the plain rava cake and also the chocolate version of it.

So… why is there a need to share one more variation – Eggless Coconut Rava Cake?

Hmmm.. This is because I got a request from you guys on how can one incorporate coconut in here. That intrigued me so much that I ended up making this flavour packed Eggless Coconut Rava Cake and mind you guys I liked this one more than the plain rava cake..

Coconut is one of those ingredients that you would always find at my Mum’s place and it is one of those ingredients that you would never find at my place… irony of life..

Well, being a South Indian coconut is often used in all our Indian cooking from simple stir-frys to Sambhar to Kootu

But my hubby does not like coconut so I do not use it much…

Let me tell you I absolutely love it.. it adds so much freshness to any dish and elevates it to next level.. I absolutely love tropical fruits and love it incorporating it as much as possible; be it smoothies or ice-creams or just yesterday I made a no-bake pineapple cheesecake which I would share soon.

I wish he too enjoyed coconut as much as the other tropical fruits that we absolutely love. By the way, what is your favorite fruit; do comment and let me know.. 🙂

Yes, it has some sugar to it but if you want an even healthier cake which has no sugar at all then definitely check out my Eggless Dates and Walnuts Cake.

This is a soft and dense cake; pretty obvious right since there is no flour in it.

Also the sweetness is perfect enough to make it a best tea time cake. Some coffee or tea would pair so well with this..

I however choose to have this Eggless Coconut Rava Cake with some fresh fruits and a side of yoghurt.. It tasted heavenly.. you must definitely try this combo.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 8 inch cake tin
Author: sushma iyer
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups Sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp Ghee or Clarified Butter
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Curd
  • 1.5 cups Rava
  • 1 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp Coconut Extract (or use vanilla extract instead)
Instructions
  1. Grind together sugar, ghee and milk until well combined smooth and thicker in consistency.

  2. Add the curd and coconut extract and mix well.

  3. Fold in the rava, desiccated coconut, cardamom and baking soda until a cake batter consistency is achieved.

  4. Pour into a prepared cake tin and bake in a pre-heated oven of 180°C for 35-45 mins or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  5. Let it cool completely before slicing.

Notes:

1. You can skip cardamom powder if you wish too. Also in place of coconut extract you can use vanilla extract. Coconut extract would enhance the flavour though.
2. If you want to bake this in a pressure cooker please refer my plain rava cake post wherein I have shared all the details. You can also bake this in a microwave for the same time.
3. Have used this cute little stencil from amazon to make the design on top of the cake. Click here for the link

    Hi. I tried this cake… But adding 1 cup milk and one cup curd… the consistency was thin… and it is not baked from inside.. I bake lot of cakes but this one due to thin consistency may be it wasn’t cooked… Pls guide.

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Deepika..

      I am so sorry to learn that you had to face this.

      But when you grind the milk, sugar and ghee; it becomes thicker. Also since we are using thicker part of curd when we add the dry ingredients it gets the cake batter like consistency. Did you check my video recipe for the same?

      I do not see anywhere where you could have gone wrong as you have experience in baking cakes. I suppose its your curd. Many have tried this and shared their views here and also on Youtube so I am presuming that your curd was not thick enough. Being a basic recipe there is no other step where you could have gone wrong.

      I would suggest you please give this a try one more time.

      Regards
      Sushma

    I wanted to know what did you top it with? I can see blue berries, and whip cream on the side. but can you share the receipe for the toppings too? It just looks wonderful.

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Geetu

      You mean like a layered cake? Yes you can layer this up but this is not as soft as a sponge cake though. If you wish you can definitely layer this..

      Regards

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Farha..

      Yes I guess that would work too..

      But while making it for the first time I would stick to 50:50 milk to coconut milk ratio just to be on the safer side 🙂

      Regards
      Sushma
