Sfouf Cupcakes | Lebanese Turmeric Cakes

Sfouf is a Lebanese semolina and turmeric cake made in parties and get-togethers. This is a real quick and easy kind of cake as you just need to mix the ingredients in one bowl and transfer them into the baking pans. The cake is usually decorated with pine nuts or almonds.

As my subtheme was cupcakes and muffins I made the sfouf cake into cupcakes. Turmeric gave them a nice yellow colour nd the taste was amazing too. It tasted like a baked semolina laddoo. My husband totally loved it nd went crazy over them. I had to make one more batch of these cupcakes the very next day for my family as for them it was the best cupcakes ever. This is the end of the third week and also end of my cupcake and muffins recipes. Keep looking forward o know my final theme for the ABC bake around the world.
