Grandma’s Semolina Pudding Recipe


1. Semolina Pudding

  • 1 liter of milk
  • 200 g of sugar (1 cup)
  • 130 g of semolina (1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

2. Caramel

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water


  1. In a small saucepan, add the sugar and ¼ cup of water, just enough to moisten all the sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring until dissolved. Keep warm without stirring until the mixture turns a light brown color.
  2. Pour the caramel into the base of the molds to be used, either small individual ones or a large one with a diameter of about 18 centimeters, and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, and vanilla. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring until dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and add the semolina in a drizzle while constantly whisking to prevent lumps. Cook for an additional minute.
  4. Pour the semolina pudding mixture over the molds covered with caramel. Allow it to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
  5. Immerse the base of the molds in a tray with boiling water for about 5 minutes to melt the caramel and unmold.
  6. Serve the semolina pudding immediately, traditionally drizzled with its own caramel, but optionally accompanied by raspberries and/or blueberries.
