How to make chocolate semolina cake?

To make our chocolate semolina cake recipe a butterless cake recipe, I have used oil. I personally prefer love oil-based cakes that’s because even after you store the cake in the refrigerator, the crumb stays soft.

Suji made from rough, coarsely ground whole wheat, is healthier than our refine wheat preparations.
