Ingredients for 16 Semolina Squares  

  • 250 g of wheat semolina (medium grain, couscous style) = 1.5 cups
  • 100 g of walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 125 g of vanilla yoghurt (or 125 g of plain yoghurt and a packet of vanilla sugar)
  • 125 ml of semi-skimmed milk (low fat, 2%)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil to grease the mold
  • 8 tablespoons of maple syrup. If you don’t have maple syrup, you can replace it with liquid honey diluted with a few drops of hot water.


Preheat the oven to 180 ° C / 350 ° F.

Step 1:

Coarsely chop the walnuts.

In a mixing bowl, mix the chopped walnuts, semolina and baking powder. Mix.

Step 2:

Add the following ingredients one by one: eggs, milk and yogurt.

Mix all the ingredients well until you get a uniform mixture.

Step 3:

Grease a shallow mold (about 1.5 L capacity) with the oil, then pour in your mixture.

Smooth the surface.

Put in the hot oven and bake for 20 minutes at 180 ° C / 350 ° F.

Step 4:

After 20 minutes of cooking, remove the cake from the oven.

Pour the maple syrup over the hot cake and spread it so as to cover the entire cake; the syrup will soak the cake.

Let cool.

To serve, cut the cake into 16 equal parts.
