This weekend I present a dessert that marked my childhood, sweet fried semolina pudding recipe. I don’t think it’s a kid who doesn’t like semolina pudding, sprinkled over with sugar and cinnamon, or with cocoa powder.

This recipe is actually a continuation of the remaining semolina pudding, the day after it has hardened. My grandmother cut this pudding into pieces, passed it through the flour and beaten egg, and fried it. It was delicious!

Now, however, we will remember our recipe for fried semolina pudding, in its own way. It’s our favorite like cream cheese filling crepes.

Let’s Start Cooking the Sweet Fried Semolina Pudding Recipe

Today I will make about four large portions of this dessert, if you want you can increase the quantities.

I used about 200 g of semolina to 1 l of milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Semolina flour

For the beginning, I put the milk to boil in a pot, together with vanilla and 80 g sugar. When the milk starts to boil, slowly pour the gray, mixing with an egg beater.

Boiling Semolina Pudding

Boil everything 10 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the pudding thickens.

Semolina Pudding is Ready

When the pudding is ready, pour it on a tray, or on any flat surface. I used the worktop in the kitchen, over which I put a plastic foil.

With a spatula, spread the pudding evenly in thickness of 1 cm – 1.5 cm, as you wish and let it cool.

Cooling Semolina Pudding

After it has cooled, cut the pudding with a knife, in approximately equal shapes.

Cutting Cooled Semolina Pudding

You can cut in any shape and size you want, even round, with the help of a glass.

Now we can go to fry. First, put on a plate about 50 g of wheat flour, through which we pass the pudding pieces.
