1 ½ liter fresh milk
1 cup fine semolina
2 tbls fresh butter or one small coffee cup olive oil
a little olive oil to grease the baking tray
5 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 vanilla powders

Heat the milk in a pot. When warm add the semolina and stir well. Add the butter and once the mixture thickens add the sugar and vanillas.

Take of the heat. Once the mixture cools down, add the 5 eggs, which you have beaten well beforehand. Then, grease a medium-sized baking tray, sprinkle with flour and empty the contents of the pot.
