Semolina pudding

Wait, have l mentioned how ridiculously easy to make this semolina pudding recipe is? Ready in well under 10 minutes and a bowl of sheer goodness is right there in front of you.

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.

How to make the perfect semolina pudding?

Semolina pudding is basically made of 2 ingredients: milk and semolina, but you can choose to make it as flavourful and sweet as you like.

All you need to do is bring the milk to boil, add the semolina gradually and keep whisking until it thickens. Don’t be tempeted to add any more semolina, as this will thicken further once it cools down.

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.

How to make semolina pudding for babies and toddlers?

It’s made exactly the same way, but what’s important, 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?

When to serve semolina pudding?

I like to have this yummy pudding in the morning, but it can also be served as a dessert after your meal.

Or even in between meals when you feel a bit peckish, but don’t want to eat to much and spoil your main meal.

    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. 🙂

    You might want to try mixing semolina pudding with tapioca pudding (there are plenty of 2x egg recipes on the web, though I expect you’ll already know this). Both individually are nice – both together are great.
