For The Semolina

  • cups whole milk 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • cup baker's sugar 1/3 cup baker's sugar (ultra fine sugar)
  • 1 vanilla bean 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
  • cup semolina 1/3 cup semolina
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For The Caramel Apples

  • 3 fuji apples 3 fuji or gala apples, peeled, cored and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup powder sugar 1 cup powder sugar
  • ½ cup Moscato dessert wine 1/2 cup Moscato dessert wine
  • ½ lemon juice juice of a 1/2 lemom


For the Caramel Apples

  1. Melt, in a large frying pan over medium heat, the butter. Add the apples and powder sugar. Cook while tossing occasionally, until the apples are tender, and the sugar has caramelized to a beautiful light golden brown color. Add the Moscato wine and stir. Set aside. 

For The Semolina

  1. When the apples are almost cooked, in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the milk, sugar, vanilla seeds, and the pod. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring it to a simmer and add the semolina to the milk in a steady stream while whisking continuously. Remove the vanilla pods and discard them. Continue whisking until the semolina is thick and smooth, around 5-8 minutes.

    Remove from heat, whisk in the butter. Serve the pudding hot topped with caramelized pears and syrup.
