Grießschmarrn – An Austrian Sweet Semolina Treat

, , , , , , ,

The Grießschmarrn is a typical Austrian sweet dish made of semolina. We have it mostly for lunch, one of my childhood memories. Tastes really delicious.

The Grießschmarrn goes well with stewed plums, apricots, elderberries, apple compote or puree and much more. (Just to name a few :-)) :-)) ) This time we had it with an apple-rhubarb puree. Apple-strawberry compote is also delicious.

You can make Grießschmarrn in the oven or in a pan.
I usually put it in the oven, but it roasts faster in the pan.
