Griessbrei semolina pudding

German Semolina Pudding  is called in German "Griessbrei" and it is a dessert or a simple sweet dish.
Serve it with apple sauce or other fruit, or just with a mix of sugar and cinnamon. It makes a great breakfast as well. Add sweetness to your taste!

What is Semolina?
Semolina is the gritty by-product that gets sifted out when wheat is milled to make flour. Or in other words:  It is the heart of the wheat kernel or also known as the endosperm. Sounds healthy as it contains iron, vitamin B and selenium. That's why we feed the German babies and children semolina. Happy Cooking!

There are 2 groups of Semolina 
  • Hartweizen Semolina (Durum) used for pasta and
  • Weichweizen Semolina (Soft Wheat) for bread, dessert, pudding
For this recipe you would use Weichweizen Griess.
