Semolina Pudding with Blueberry Jam | Gris cu lapte
This is one of my favorite desserts of all time! It brings up so many childhood memories. My grandma used to make this very often. I used to eat it with homemade strawberry jam and it was absolutely heavenly! This semolina pudding is very easy to make and all you need are four basic ingredients: semolina, milk, vanilla extract and jam. I didn’t add extra sugar because it doesn’t need to be any sweeter. You can eat this with any jam you like, strawberry, blueberry, plums…it goes well with any of them.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
- 1 cup semolina
- 4 1/2 cups milk (or almond milk for vegans)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- jam (I used blueberry jam, but you can use any jam you like)
- 1-2 lemon slices
Pour milk into a medium pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Add vanilla essence.
Slowly sprinkle semolina while continuously whisking.
Remove from heat after 5-6 minutes. The texture should be a little thicker than sour cream.
Let it cool down for a while.
Serve warm or cold with jam on top.
Tip: If the jam is too sweet, add some lemon juice.
