♡ Baked Semolina Dessert ♡

Turkish traditional desserts usually have sugar water syrup in them which we call sherbet. This one is one of those too. But the thing is I didn’t use as much sugar as the traditional dessert would use so this dessert is somewhat healthier? Well to me anyways.
Less sugar = healthier in my eyes. Cutting out sugar has really helped me lose weight in the past so this is how I do it but of course if you prefer very sweet desserts then of course you can add more.
What I did in this recipe was take out the sugar in the actual dessert and I only added it in the ‘sherbet’. And honestly I genuinely think this was the perfect amount of sweetness and if I had added the sugar in the actual dessert too it would be too sweet for me.
The main reason I don’t like having overly sweet dessert is that when I eat something too sweet my throat tingles for some reason? I’m not sure if that’s normal to be honest. It used to happen a lot more. I managed to trained my taste buds somehow over years.
Okay back to the dessert. What is so special about this amazing thing is that I baked it. Semolina dessert has so many ways to be  made. With sherbet, milk, pudding like, with cake…  The milk one is my favorite after this one and I promise I will be definitely showing you that way too soon cause it’s just too amazing to miss out.
