I took a break yesterday but today is our last day of Sweet Week – my waistline seems to be relieved. I went through my larder and found a pack of semolina…I can hear you, but trust me this recipe is really nice and when it is finished, you won’t believe it is semolina…trust me on this one. I used heart moulds – since we are close to the special day again – yeap I am saying the Valentine’s word – ups….
You will need:
|Semolina Heart – to good to give away|
- 250ml milk
- 75g caster sugar
- Vanilla essence (use the real stuff or vanilla pods)
- 40g semolina
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 sheets of gelatin (soaked in cold water)
- 40ml Cointreau (more or less – it’s up to you)
- zest of 1/2 orange
- 250ml whipped cream
Bring the milk with the sugar and vanilla to a boil. Stir in the semolina. Keep stirring on a medium heat for about 4 mins, take off the heat. Squeeze the excess water off the gelatin and add to the semolina with the egg yolk – all the time stirring. Add the Cointreau and orange zest. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens, then add the whipped cream – don’t beat just stir.
Fill forms or moulds with the mixture and chill for about 2-3 hours.
I served it with a mixed berry coulis….. yummmmmm
