Semolina Pudding

Serves 12
Time 1 hour


1.5L full cream milk
½ cup sugar
Ground cardamom
½ cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
180g semolina
250g salted butter, melted
1 packet filo pastry 

Icing sugar to dust


Preheat oven to 180°C
Put milk, sugar, cardamon, honey and vanilla in a saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and milk comes to boil. Slowly add semolina to the milk while whisking. Whisk to bring together then stir with a wooden spoon as it thickens, turn the heat down if it’s too hot. Pour into a large baking dish.
Brush 1 sheet of filo at a time, scrunch into a ball and place on top of the pudding. Repeat until all of the pastry has been used.
Place in the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
