Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan, stir together the milk and sugar. Set over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Milk tends to boil over as soon as it boils, so stay with it! When it boils, immediately remove from the heat. Stir in the semolina, and return to the burner. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until thickened but still pourable. Pour into serving bowls, and top with your favorite hot cereal toppings.

I grew up in Germany and love this dish. You can have it in the morning like a hot breakfast or as a dessert. We used to add fresh fruit like cherries or berries to it. My grandmother served a cherry soup with it. Delicious! Read More

Great little breakfast! I only made 1 serving, I knew the hubby wouldn't like it. If you grew up, like me, eating cream of wheat this is what it reminded me of. It was very easy & good. Had it with wild blueberries. Thanks for a tasty breakfast. Read More

Well you learn something new every day! Firstly I didn't have any semolina in my cupboard so I used polenta instead. Is it not the same thing? Lo and behold it worked, though I had my doubts as to whether it would thicken as I whisked madly away. Alas, it did and was devoured by my kids instantly. They especially enjoyed the last minute addition of chocolate chips that melted through nicely! Read More

Loved this! It is like cream of wheat as one reviewer said. I added a smidge of Dr. Oetker's vanilla sugar and blueberries. Even my picky 4 year old liked it. Thank you for sharing this one. Read More
