Semolina pudding recipe

Semolina pudding recipe or semolina porridge is a easy and nutrittious breakfast that little ones just adore. And big ones too. Just a few ingredients and you get the most amazing pudding ever. It can also be considered a dessert, and served either hot or cold.

Wait, have l mentioned how ridiculously easy to make this is? Ready in well under 10 minutes and a bowl of sheer goodness is right there in front of you. It’s basically made of 2 ingredients: milk and semolina, but you can choose to make it as flavourful and sweet as you like.

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 completely guilt free! It makes a great alternative to the good old oat porridge. Top it either with cinnamon only or your favourite jam, fresh fruit or nuts. Or fruit and nuts together.

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 lemon would also work wonders. So, cooking it can be that simple, it is truly up to you how you like it.

If you want to make semolina pudding for babies, do not add sugar, but can add lemon zest and cinnamon, depending how the baby takes it. But even plain tastes great. Or mash banana and mix it with it, that will taste amazing.  Do use full-fat milk for them, otherwise you can use semi-skimmed if you make it for adults.

When l was a child, mum used to make it often for the whole family. Together with the rice pudding another great favourite of mine, they were the perfect treat for us, when ingredients for more sophisticated desserts were not available. Who needed chocolates anyway with such a delicious dessert?

It certainly is one of those simple but tasty recipes you can make when you run out of ideas for breakfast, or you just want a bit of a change from your usual food. You can probably find semolina pudding in stores, but if you check the label, it’s full of unnecessary junk ingredients.

So it only makes sense to make your own pudding at home, it comes out a lot cheaper too. A packet of 500 g is under £1. You only need about 2-3 tsp per serving, so that packet can last you a really long time. Do give it a try, you’ll love it.

    I’ve loved semolina since I was a child growing up in post-war Britain. My mum made it regulary, and I always preferred it to ground rice. It’s a pudding that can be served with several things, as you say, and the ones you show here do look great. My own children all just loved jam – raspberry or strawberry, mostly. But my husband and I like it with stewed fruit or prunes – stewed and served hot. 🙂
