    Lalaloula's Note:

    This is a typical German dessert that I ate very often as a child. It is made from semolina and quite similar to pudding, only grainier. It is often eaten plain or with some cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top. Another popular way of eating it is topped with berry compote. I hope youll enjoy this as much as we do! :)

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 350 ml milk (low-fat is fine)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons sugar (splenda is fine as well, can use more)
    • 40 g semolina (I use whole spelt semolina)


    1. 1
      In a saucepan mix milk, sugar and vanilla.
    2. 2
      Bring milk to a boil being careful not to burn it. Reduce heat to medium.
    3. 3
      Using a wire whisk stir in semolina and simmer for 5 minutes until semolina has thickened lightly.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat, fill into serving bowls and allow to chill until completely set. You can also eat this lukewarm, when it is still creamy.
    5. 5
      Serve with compote of your choice, cream or cinnamon-sugar.

      This is a good basic recipe. Try not to use sugar to save on the calories, instead, add an eggyolk at the end of cooking and whisk under a beaten egg white. Cheers - Biena

      I was expecting this to be good-but in fact it was fantastic! I used semolina flour and not the coarser version of semolina. Semolina flour's consistency is very similar to Cream of Wheat/farina and luckily it worked out perfectly for this recipe. I may have added more semolina than the recipe called for but we like our hot cereal on the thicker side. The pudding was eaten hot and we added a sprinkle of brown sugar to the top; raisins in mine and dried cranberries in Tasty's serving. A small dot of butter was placed on top finished with a light sprinkle of cinnamon. Made for Veg Tag/March. Highly recommend!

      LOVELOVELOVE!! I make a drink of milk, sugar & vanilla! This was so yummy! I doubled it for the 4 of us & we all wanted more, lol. I topped mine with minced crystallized ginger & a splash of cream. It was dreamy. Made for Veggie Swap 2/13.
