How to Make a Semolina Pudding Dessert

Updated on May 6, 2017

Semolina Dessert

This semolina pudding recipe is very, very simple to make, and you do not need a lot of ingredients. What makes this recipe even better is that it doesn't take very long to make at all. Just throw your ingredients together in a pan, bring to a boil, simmer for a few minutes, and you are done. The main ingredients that you will need are 1/3 of a cup of semolina, 1/2 a cup of sugar, and 2 and 1/4 cups of milk. If you want to you can also include a little vanilla essence, sultanas, and cinnamon. I always put vanilla in because I think it gives it a great flavor boost. Like I said before, this recipe does not take long to make, and it should take you no more than 10 minutes. I think it took me around 5 minutes to make it the last time I made it.

Semolina Pudding Instructions

  1. The first step is to combine all of your ingredients in a pot. Your Milk, Semolina, Sugar and other optional ingredients if you choose to add them.
  2. Now put your stove on to a medium heat and bring your mixture to the boil.. Make sure you keep stirring your mixture so that it doesn't form lumps.
  3. As soon as your mixture starts to boil turn the flame down to a low heat and let it simmer until the mixture thickens.. This shouldn't take too long.
  4. Once the mixture has thickened to the consistency which you desire it is time to serve and eat.. Enjoy

        Thank you for this recipe! Brings back memories of Saturday mornings when my mum would make it for me and my sister. Personally I would not have it anywhere near this sweet, though - I think you could comfortably halve the quantity of sugar.

        I tried this and loved it, especially when it got cold. I just used vanilla but now am thinking what about other flavours like coffee, or banana? Would I add half a cup of strong coffee? Or maybe a tbspn of instant coffee? And for the banana, maybe just throw an over-ripe one into the mixture on the stove? I can see getting addicted to all kinds of semolina pudding!
