Honey Semolina Cake

Honey Semolina Cake recipe - The Cooks Pantry


Matt Sinclair


  • 120 gm Ballantyne Rolled Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 cups fine yellow semolina
  • ½ cup Coles Finest Red Gum Honey
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 inch piece ginger, sliced


  • Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 30cm x 20cm baking tray and line with baking paper. Lightly grease baking paper.
  • Cream butter and sugar in a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Slowly add eggs yolks one at a time and carefully pour in milk. Add vanilla and mix to combine. The batter should look slightly separated, which is okay at this point.
  • In a separate bowl, add semolina, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix to combine. On a low speed, gently add dry mixture to the wet mixture and beat on medium speed until smooth.
  • Beat egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks form. Gently fold into cake batter, careful not to knock out any air.
  • Pour batter into lined tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and firm to touch.
  • Whilst cake is in the oven combine sugar, honey, water, ginger and zest in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove ginger pieces.
  • Pour syrup over cake as soon as it is removed from the oven.
