Cook Time

35-45 minutes


8-10 people


  • 1-1/2 cups semolina flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground tumeric
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/8 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Barnea EVOO
  • 1 Tablespoon pine nuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round baking pan.
  • Mix the semolina, flour, turmeric and baking powder together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, stir milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add the flour mixture and Barnea EVOO and beat with an electric beater at medium speed for 5 minutes. This is a very important step in the process. Beat for the full 5 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into the greased 9-inch round cake pan. Sprinkle the top with pine nuts. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
