I've just come across a recipe for this cake which includes 5oz of Farola wich according to Google, is a form of fine semolina. I wondered if anyone has tried it. If you fancy a different bedtime drink from the same book, try disolving an oxo cube in half a pint of hot milk and add lemon juice to taste. Bon appetit.

Sorry but no. School dinners put me off semolina 50 years ago and I haven't recovered.

Ditto. Semolinaaaah. Thought the wall-paper paste had died out long ago.

But can you eat it with tinned tomatoes and/or South African dung beetle?

I would imagine that even the dung beatle would pass semolina.

grind up brazil or almond nuts add to it warm up and its an excellent bed time snack.

add dried fruit to make sweeter or carob.

I used to eat everybody else's semolina at school. I liked it, especially with stewed prunes!!!

I bet you were then able to perform the eye of the needle trick!

Semolina and jam stirred in - now that is nice.

You don't stir it in, you leave it as a blob in the middle and nibble around it!
