STEP-BY-STEP COOKING RECIPE
Prepare the raisins for the curd casserole. Wash it and place it in a bowl. Cover with very hot water and let sit for 10 minutes. Then fold on a sieve, transfer to a paper towel and let dry.
Rub the curd through a fine sieve over a large bowl. Cut the butter into small cubes and leave at room temperature for 25-30 minutes.
Beat eggs with sugar and salt separately with a mixer until a fluffy mass is obtained with a uniform consistency. Add to the curd and beat together again with a mixer.
Pour in milk and stir. Add soft butter and beat with a mixer on medium speed. Add the semolina and stir to keep the casserole free of lumps.
Add raisins to the casserole. Stir. Leave at room temperature for 10 minutes to swell a little in the curd mass for the casserole.
