Lemon semolina puddings

If you are not a fan of semolina, and your memories are of lumpy, lukewarm school dinners, then this recipe will make you think again. These lemon semolina puddings are a light, fluffy and creamy lemony dessert. There is a fair amount of whisking involved in this recipe, but don't let that put you off. It is this process that adds the air that creates the lovely mousse like texture. Inspired by the Scandinavian whisked semolina and berry pudding vispipuuro


Serve cold with a spoonful of creme fraiche and topped with extra lemon zest.

  1. Yum! These look fabulous. I was lucky as a kid - we never had semolina at school, but my mum used to make it (well!) at home and it was wonderful! You have brought back lots of happy memories :-) Eb x

    1. thanks so much. I have come to semolina relatively late in life. It was always rice pudding in our house. But these are a new favourite. So pleased it brings back lovely memories for you :)
