No-Bake Leche cake dessert (Lebanese nights dessert)

No-Bake Leche cake dessert 

Well! today's dessert a little bit strange from what i've used to make, but as i mentioned before i love new recipes and middle eastern recipes, so i have tried this recipe and it become my favorite dessert, they called it Lebanon nights, but i found the name a little bit weird for this white clear shiny dessert so i called it Leche cake. Anyway, i love to make this dessert because it is easy and delicious and it takes only few minutes. If you are vegan, just use almond milk or coconut milk instead of milk.

Prep Time: 50 mins
Chill time: 2 hours
Serve: 6 persons


1 Cup medium grains semolina
3 and half cups milk
2 Tablespoon sugar
1 Teaspoon rose water or vanilla extract

For Topping Cream:
3 slices toast bread

1 tablespoon sugar

Sugar syrup(or use Honey instead) :
2 cups sugar
1 and 1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 Teaspoon rose water 

1 cup pistachio or any other favorite nuts

The way:
- In a medium heat stir semolina, milk and sugar. Stir constantly until thicken, then add rose water or vanilla extract.
- In a pyrex dish pour the semolina mixture and let it cool.
- For topping cream: cut the bread into dices. In a saucepan add milk, cream, sugar and cornstarch. Stir to simmer on a medium heat, then add the bread dices. Keep stir, use hand blender to smooth the pudding. Remove from heat and pour into the semolina layer.
- Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2 to 4 hours.
- To prepare sugar syrup, on a high heat boil sugar with water and lemon juice until thiken, add the rose water and remove from heat.
