In a pot, pour the milk and add the sugar.
Place the pot on the stove and on low heat add the semolina.
Stir constantly for about 10 minutes until it becomes a thick cream.

After the cream cools down a bit, add the orange zest, beaten eggs and butter.
Stir well to mix all ingredients.
Spread the cream in a small baking pan and bake at 180 degrees for 60 minutes or until brown on the top.
