Bitterkoekjes griesmeelpudding (Semolina pudding with macaroons)

Fancy a traditional Dutch pudding with a difference? Then try our tempting recipe for old-fashioned semolina pudding with crunchy pieces of bitterkoekjes (macaroons) for added bite.


½ litre of whole milk
50 grams of semolina
50 gram of sugar
A pinch of salt
5 macaroon biscuits

semolina pudding with macaroons


First rinse a pudding mould (of ½ litre capacity) with cold water. Next mix the semolina and sugar together in a bowl. Now pour the milk into a saucepan and bring slowly to the boil. Stir in the semolina mixture, add a pinch of salt, and then leave to simmer on a low heat, taking care to constantly stir until the pudding thickens. Lastly crumble the macaroon biscuits, stir into the pudding, and then carefully pour the mixture into your pudding mould. Allow to cool in the fridge before serving with Boerenjongens (brandied raisins) or a colourful splash of warm berry juice.

Tip: Short on time or don’t fancy getting your hands dirty in the kitchen? Then why not order a delicious ready made semolina pudding with macaroons from Holland at Home instead?
