Tips & variations

  • Be sure to leave the semolina to infuse for 20-40 minutes before kneading the dough. Otherwise, the grains will remain raw and will crunch in the finished cake.

  • All ingredients must be of high quality and fresh: butter, eggs, flour, sour cream and, of course, semolina. Grains are better to choose light, without dark grains (these are the remains of wheat husks).

  • To make the semolina cake even tastier, you can add dried fruits, candied fruits, chocolate, honey, poppy seeds, apples, berries, pumpkin to the dough.

  • Semolina cake is a good base for a cake, because it is always fluffy and tall. It is enough to make a cream, cut the base into 2-3 cakes, layer them and let it brew.
