DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Butter a 15 X 13 inch baking pan generously and sprinkle with a generous amount of semolina to coat (the way you would flour a pan).
  • In a large pot, scald milk with 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
  • Taste the milk to see how sweet it is.
  • If you want it sweeter, add up to 1/2 cup more sugar.
  • Add butter.
  • When butter has melted, add semolina in a thin stream, whisking constantly.
  • Bring to the boil and lower heat so that it dosn"t boil too quickly, whisking all the time.
  • It will thicken quickly.
  • Once thick, remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.
  • Quickly whisk in eggs and keep whisking to incorporate them without curdling them.
  • Add vanilla extract.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until top of custard is flecked with golden-brown patches.
  • Remove, dust with cinnamon, and cool.
  • Note: This is a very plain pudding, and good in its plain-ness. If you want a little flavour boost, stir in some freshly-grated lemon zest to the custard just before baking.
