Method

  • In a saucepan, gently melt the butter. Add the semolina - it will "absorb" all the butter and seize up, but keep stirring over a low heat while you gently warm the milk up to dissolve the sugar. Don't let the milk boil.
  • When the milk is warm and the sugar has melted into it, ladle a spoonful into the buttery semolina mixture. It will absorb pretty quickly, and gradually add the rest of the milk, stirring till very thick.
  • Transfer this mixture into a tin or bowl of some sort and allow to cool and thicken. This isn't a fancy dish, but delicious and the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Feel free to stir in fruit of some sort - passionfruit in particular is lovely but tonight I made some with chopped tinned peaches and have nothing to complain about.
