  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup fine Semolina or Farina
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 3-inch strips of orange zest
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice


Mix the flour, semolina and baking powder together in a medium bowl.

Using a mixer, cream the butter with sugar until light and fluffy. With the mixer running, add egg yolks one by one. Continue mixing until a light yellow color. Add vanilla extract and lemon zest.

Add the flour mixture a little bit at a time, alternating with the milk.

Pour the batter into a greased pan pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.

To make the syrup, add water, sugar, and orange peel to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and cool.

While the cake is still warm, pour the syrup over top.
