    1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine water, milk, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to the boil and remove from heat. Remove cinnamon stick.
    2. In another saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Allow it to bubble, but not to brown. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the semolina, a little at a time, until mixture is thick and smooth. Allow it to brown slightly, then stir in the milk mixture, a little at a time. Continue to stir until mixture has progressed from creamy to thick.
    3. Place mixture in a jelly mould or glass dish. Serve hot or cold.

    Way too sweet and too buttery!  -  05 Nov 2017


    Blimey! What a lot of sugar and butter! I halved the amount of both and it still tasted very sweet. Too sweet in fact. Next time I'll try a third of the amount, which will also be a healthier option.  -  08 Jul 2014


    This was delicious!! And pretty healthy if you cut down on the butter. I added about 2 tablespoons of butter and it was still delicious. I also mixed in slivered almonds and raisins. Yummy!!! I will also cut down th sugar by 1/4th cup next time.  -  07 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
