Baseema Recipe


5 eggs
1 cup icing sugar
3/4 cup butter / oil
500g yogurt
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 cup of coconut
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup water

Beat eggs and sugar.  Add oil and yogurt and mix.  

In a separate bowl sift flour and add baking powder and coconut, then add to the mixture while stirring.  

Spread mixture onto greased tray.  Bake for 30 minutes 200° Celsius.

In another saucepan, mix sugar and lemon with water, boil until syrup thickens.  

When cake is cooked, pour syrup over evenly so it soaks through.
