Only a few more days until the end of Ramadan, and the days will soon become busy with Eïd preparations (and then the celebration of course!). I decided to prepare a semolina pudding with a caramel topping, extremely popular in North Africa and always with a hint of orange blossom water.
A sweet and fresh dessert is much appreciated after a long day of fasting.
Ingredients: (for the caramel)
- 150g of caster sugar
- 3 tablespoons of water
- Pour the sugar and the water into a pan and start to cook on a low heat.
- When the caramel becomes golden brown remove from the heat.
- Immediately pour a little bit of caramel into each ramekin and set aside, (rotate the ramekin to cover the entire bottom surface with caramel).
Ingredients: (for the pudding)
- 1 liter of full-fat milk
- 100g of durum wheat fine semolina
- 150g of caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons of orange blossom water
- 2 eggs
- Preheat the oven to 170C degrees.
- Boil the milk in a large pan over a medium heat.
- Add the orange blossom water into the pan.
- When you see bubbles, pour the semolina.
- Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the semolina becomes smooth (not thick).
- Remove the pan from the heat.
- In a bowl whisk the 2 eggs together and pour the mixed eggs on the top of the semolina.
- Whisk energetically the mixture and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Slowly pour the semolina into each ramekin and bake for 30 minutes into the oven.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
- Before serving, put a knife under water then scrape around on the outside of the pudding, tap gently on a serving dish to dislodge.
The semolina pudding is sweet and the aroma of the orange blossom water is always nice. Sometimes I add golden dried raisins to this recipe or lemon zest or orange zest!
