Semolina Sandwich Loaf Recipe!

I have never liked semolina.

That coarse, sandy coating that encases an otherwise delicious English muffin?

No thank you!

For me it was mainly the texture since sandy isn’t my number 1 texture of choice, so when I saw some very fine semolina I was anxious to try it out!

To see if I enjoyed the taste, I created some semolina bread!

It is similar to white bread but has a more complex flavour which was delicious!

Semolina bread

Semolina Sandwich loaf
Serves 5-6


300ml warm water
1 teaspoon instant yeast
500g very fine semolina (durum flour) plus extra for dusting
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
50ml extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fine salt


Add flour into a bowl and measure in the sugar, salt and yeast.

Pour in the olive oil and warm water and stir until a rough dough forms.

Turn out the rough dough on to a clean work surface and knead until smooth, shiny and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the dough into an oiled bowl and cover with a clean tea towel or cling film and leave in a warm place until doubled in size.

Grease an 8 and a half by 4 and a half loaf pan and shape the dough into a loaf shape.

Place the bread in the tin and dust on the top with a little more semolina.

Let rise until the dough is just above the top of the pan.

Preheat the oven to 190oc and bake for 35-45 minutes.

Allow to cool then serve!
