Instructions
Batter
  1. Before you start on the batter, blanch 16 whole almonds. To do this, pour boiling water over the almonds. Allow the almonds to soak for a few minutes. Drain the almonds when their skin can be easily removed. Remove the skins from all the almonds; set aside until needed.
  2. Mix semolina with baking powder and baking soda.
  3. Mix yogurt, butter, sugar, vanilla, and coconut.
  4. Add the yogurt mixture to the semolina. Mix until combined.
  5. Spray an 8”x8” glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the batter in the pan; score into 16 squares. Add one almond in the center of each square. Bake for 45 minutes.
Syrup
  1. Once the cake is in the oven, mix syrup ingredients and stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Boil for 15 minutes, or until thickened. The syrup will thicken further as it cools.
  2. Remove the cake from the oven once browned; cut into 16 squares.
  3. Drizzle the cake with the syrup. The syrup will soak in as the cake cools off. Serve with a hot cup of chai!
