Substituting semolina flour for regular flour produces a delicious cake with a slightly nutty taste and a softer, more custard-like texture. Semolina can be substituted for all or some of the all-purpose flour in a cake recipe.
Middle Eastern cuisines often feature cakes using semolina flour and glazed with a simple syrup flavored with citrus, orange-blossom water or rosewater. Semolina flour can also be substituted for all-purpose flour when making breads or pizza dough. The flour can even be used to make a porridge, boiled in milk in the way grits are prepared. It can then be topped with fruit, syrup or other desired toppings for a simple breakfast.
