Swahili Food Recipe: Tanzanian Half Cake Ideas the Right Away

Components for Half Cake Recipe

  • 2 cups of flour [all-purpose]
  • 2. 1/2 cup sugar (increasing to your desired taste)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  •  1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp margarine/unsalted butter
  •  1/2 cup of milk
  •  Two whisked eggs
  •  1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cardamom seeds (liki)
  •  A frying oil

Step by Step Instructions to Prepare Half Cake

  1. Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, iliki, baking powder, and sugar) into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the butter and knead it in thoroughly to get a fine crumb mixture (See the images below)
  3. Make a hole in the centre and pour in the vanilla and eggs.
  4. Add the cream, combine well, and mix for five minutes to make a dough that is elastic, soft, and does not adhere to your hands.
  5. After forming a batter ball, place it in a basin, cover it, and set aside for forty minutes to rise. (As an example, see the image below.)
  6. Flour your work surface lightly and arrange the dough on it. Roll out the batter using a rolling blade to get a disc shape.
  7. Slice it into square\diamond shapes and set them on a floured baking tray.
  8. In a frying half a sheet cake pan, heat the oil (moderate to low heat).
  9. Gently drop the square bits into the boiling oil, being careful not to overcrowd the frying pan. Cook until the bottom is gold-like brown, then flip and finish cooking on the other side.
  10. Take out the half cakes from the pan and place them on a clean cloth to absorb any residual oil.
  11. Take out the oil from the fire before putting in the next set of half cakes [squares], allowing it to cool slightly before adding more squares to cook.
  12. Once all of the batches have been fried, the half cakes are ready to serve with milk, tea, and soda.
