Semolina and Raisin Butter Cake/ Kek Suji Kismis

As I have previously mentioned before, my family is a big fan of butter cakes. Pound cakes always get their approval, like these Orange Condensed Milk Pound Cake, Orange Almond Buttermilk Pound Cake and Apple Loaf Cake which I have previously baked. This time around, I would like to share a classic butter cake recipe which is a favourite in the family too - Semolina Butter Cake. This is simply a plain butter cake and as you might have guessed it, with added semolina. The semolina gives this cake an interesting texture and a little bit of crunch as you bite into the semolina. This recipe is taken from a very old 'Keluarga' magazine, which we no longer have by now. But countless times baking it makes the recipe stays in our mind, thank god. 

Semolina Butter Cake

100g semolina
50g raisins
150g fresh milk
250gm good quality butter
220gm caster sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
250gm flour
1 tsp baking powder
1. Combine the semolina, raisins and milk in a container. Set it aside for about 30 mins to let the semolina absorb all the liquid and plump up.
2. Sift cake flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
4. Add in eggs one at a time. Make sure it's well mixed and smooth.
5. Add in vanilla extract and cream well. 
6. Using the mixer on low speed, add in flour in 3 additions. Mix till batter is smooth. Fold in the semolina mixture.
7. Put the batter batter in a greased 9-inch pan and bake at 180C for 45 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

2. Ayak tepung dan serbuk penaik. Ketepikan.
3. Pukul mentega dan gula sampai berkrim.
