Baked Semolina Cake | Baked Upma in Muffin Tin

Baked Upma

Baked Upma is an attempt at baking regular South Indian Upma in an Oven. This Semolina cake is easy to serve as its baked in a Muffin Tin.

I have a fancy of making different dishes in a Muffin Tin and in the process think of vague things to do. However, today’s dish is almost similar to a regular baked semolina cake, albiet being a savory one and same as the regular Upma recipe. After making Thakkali Upma, I wanted the recipe to be almost same, except making it for single portion.

After making upma for the previous night dinner, I can’t be again serving the same even though cooked in different appliances. So I made this for myself. Since this was getting baked, I added Baking powder and it took almost 25 mins to get done. The taste and texture was fine. I will have to mention that it was more dense and soft. I was only looking at the time. Also since I baked it in a Muffin tin, the texture might have changed. Had this been baked in a regular tray, it might have been more cake like.

Anyway I enjoyed this experiment and in my next post will showcase whats the bext method to make Upma.

This combines both BM#83 make a dish in different appliances and Bakeathon 2017.

  1. Upma in muffin tins are so cute. Haha, this weekend, it was handvo everyday and husband was curious why I was having such a hard time with handvo. He thought I made it multiple times either to perfect the recipe or to get good pictures.. Then I had to explain it is handvo in 3 different appliances hence cooking and working on handvo for 3 days. And that I was working on 3 different posts and not one. 🙂
