Semolina pudding is a porridge-type pudding made from semolina, which is cooked with milk, or a mixture of milk and water. It is often served with sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, raisins, fruit, or syrup.[1] A similar consistency to rice pudding can also be made by using more semolina and by baking, rather than boiling.

Semolina pudding is somewhat similar to the maize-based grits, and has been eaten in Europe since Roman times. Apicius describes an almond and semolina pudding, made from farina.[2]

Semolina pudding is also on sale as an instant (powdered)[3] or finished convenience food. Cream, vanilla, fruit, spices or artificial flavouring is often added. Some of these products must be prepared with milk or water. If only water is necessary, then powdered milk is an ingredient of the convenience food.
