      This was very easy to do and I love the texture you get using semolina or polenta in baking. I used dried fruit medley as I was out of dates and the result was really great. Possibly this cake/dessert is best eaten warm - I had mine with whipped cream - as it may tend to dry out a little but I will never know as this cake will have vanished way before 24 hours is up as my family has greatly enjoyed it - thanks so much,Bayhill
