Finally, I can say I baked these goodies without any instructions....following self and with lots of love. Yes, long time back while going through internet for an eggless cake recipe I did stop by a kind of Yogurt-Semolina cake. This time I thought let me give it a try , the fear will never go otherwise. This self trained, home cook would definitely not bake like a baker if she doesn't have that magical power in her hands. She never claims either she has. This blog was started intending to share simple, home cooked food that she knows. She gets overjoyed when people say, hey your recipes are simple, we need not go to the super market to buy the ingredients, they are at arms reach. This gives the lady utmost pleasure. With new vigour, she keeps compiling recipes on behalf of the yesteryear ladies who had far more expertise but did not get a proper platform to showcase their talent. They did not have access to modern gadgets, but patience, effort, dedication and love for what they do.

These muffins are done in less than 1hour and are just perfect with your evening tea. Done with every thing available in your kitchen, its hassle free too. Semolina, flour, yogurt, sugar, vinegar, oil, baking powder, lemon zest...these are what I used to prepare these eggless muffins. For the first time, I did the measurements independently, hence felt extremely happy and definitely was satisfied with the outcome. Let us see how we do it.

INGREDIENTS :[measuring cup to be same]
Refined Flour : 2 cup
Semolina : 1cup
Plain Yogurt : 1cup
Sugar : 3/4cup
Baking Powder : 2tsp
Vinegar : 1tbsp
Oil : 3/4cup
Lemon Zest : 1tbsp[of 1 lemon]
Raisins to put on top[optional]

Preheat oven at 200*C.

Take the flour, semolina, baking powder in a bowl and mix very well.

In another bowl, mix together sugar, oil, vinegar, yogurt very well.

Now add the flour mix to the liquid batter and just mix all together. DO NOT BEAT.

Add the lemon zest to the batter.

Pour into each muffin cup till half and top with 2-3 raisins. They look as below.

If you are pouring directly into muffin trays, then grease the cups with little oil.

Bake at convection mode for 15 minutes at 200*C.

They are done. The measurement yielded 24 muffins. If you are doing in an OTG, please adjust temperature accordingly. Finally, they look as below, enjoy with your tea.
