Recipe by C. Taylor

This is a traditional greek dessert, but unlike most of the recipes on this site, uses butter instead of oil. I like to heat a bit up and pour milk over it and have it for breakfast. Please note that cooking time doesn't include time for cooling (since technically it's good hot too).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pot, mix water, sugar and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Remove cinnamon stick.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium heat, melt butter and then add the cream of wheat and the almonds. Keep stirring until the semolina turns a golden brown, being careful it doesn't burn.
  3. CAREFULLY pour liquid into the semolina. It will bubble voilently. Mix it thoroughly and then pour the mixture into a mold. Let cool and then remove from mold.
