Semolina pudding is a dessert that little ones just adore. And big ones too. Just a few ingredients and you get the most amazing pudding ever. Wait, have l mentioned how ridiculously easy to make this is? Ready in 10 minutes and a bowl of sheer goodness is right there in front of you.
Warning! You are in great danger of becoming a semolina pudding addict!!! 😆
Ah, the little things in life! The great thing about this pudding is that you can have it for breakfast too, and guilt free! It makes a great alternative to the good old porridge. Top it either with cinnamon only or your favourite jam. If you really like it a bit sweeter, add more sugar to it, although I think there is no need for too much if you add vanilla and/or lemon extract, that will make it really flavourful. Or the zest of one lemon would also work wonders. So, cooking can be that simple, it is truly up to you how you like it.
- 600 ml milk
- 12 tsp semolina
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp lemon extract
- 3 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- In a small pan, stir together the milk, lemon, vanilla extract and sugar. I used semi-skimmed milk, but you can replace it with full-fat milk if you prepare it for kids.
- Simmer on a medium heat for about 5 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the heat and gradually add the semolina whisking constantly.
- Return the pan to a low heat and whisk until it thickens slightly. Be careful when you whisk, as it can bubble quite vigorously. Do not be tempted to add any more semolina at this point, otherwise, when it cools down, the pudding will be too hard.
- Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
- Perfect to serve either hot or cold with any preserve or just on its own.
