Semolina Cake

This recipe is especially for those who like dessert but do not want to gain weight as it’s very light and has low calories.

I learnt this cake from one of my best friends. She likes dairy desserts a lot and creates wonderful tastes in her kitchen. In the picture, you see the semolina cake we made together. It was a great pleasure to make something with her in the kitchen.

Irmik Pastasi


•    1lt milk
•    1 cup semolina
•    1,5 cup sugar
•    2 tbsp butter
•    1 tsp vanilla
•    1 lemon zest, grated
•    Walnut
•    Cinnamon

Put milk, semolina, sugar and butter in a pot. Stir it continually until it gets thick. When it has a pudding like thickness, take it from the fire.

Dampen a mold completely. There shouldn’t be water in it, it should be just a little wet.

Then pour half of the semolina mixture in this dampened mold. Sprinkle some walnut on it. Then pour the rest of the mixture. This way, walnuts will be in between these two halves.

Put it in refrigerator and wait. After it gets cold enough, pu it on a plate turning upside down. When you turn it, its top will be smooth, which seems wonderful.

Finally sprinkle some cinnamon and walnut pieces on it before serving it in slices.
