DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the semolina flour (Cream of Wheat), baking powder, 1 cup sugar, coconut and butter. Add the yogurt and milk; mix until all is well moistened, but not runny. It should be the consistency of brownie batter. If it's too dry, add a little more milk.
  • Spread into prepared baking dish, smooth the top.
  • Bake 45 minutes until golden brown.
  • While it is baking, make the syrup: Combine the water and sugar, bring to a boil and boil for at least 5 minutes. You can do this on top of the stove or in the microwave.
  • When it is finished baking, pour the syrup over the hot cake and place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until the syrup has been fully absorbed.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
