Bodino of Semolina


  • 1 1/2 pints of milk
  • 4 ounces of castor sugar
  • 5 ounces of semolina
  • yolks of 6 and whites of 2 eggs well beaten up
  • a little grated lemon peel
  • 3/4 ounce of sultanas
  • 2 small glasses of rum


Boil milk with castor sugar, and gradually add semolina, boil for a quarter of an hour more and stir continually with a wooden spoon, then take the saucepan off the fire, and when it is cooled a little, add the egg yolks and whites, lemon peel, sultanas and rum. Mix well, so as to get it very smooth, pour it into a buttered mould and serve either hot or cold.

If cold, put whipped cream flavoured with stick vanilla round the dish; if hot, a Zabajone.
