How to Make Phyllo Pastry Cake With Semolina Cream Filling

  4. For the phyllo pastry cake:

    Coat a 10 x 5 x 2 inch (24 x 13 x 5 cm) baking dish with melted butter. Line the baking dish with 2 phyllo sheets and coat them with butter. Add the next 2 phyllo sheets and again butter. Continue to add another 2 phyllo sheets and again butter.

  5. Transfer the semolina pudding into the phyllo-lined baking dish. Add the last 2 phyllo sheets and butter, and flip their margins inside over the semolina pudding.
