German Semolina Pudding (or some call it Cream of Wheat) - in German "Griessbrei" - is a typical German delicious dessert or even a main dish with apple sauce or other fruit, or just with sugar and cinnamon. It makes a great breakfast.
What is Semolina?
Semolina as the “coarse, purified wheat middlings”. So this 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 Germany babies and children semolina. Happy Cooking!
