Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F ‘ and butter well a large cake pan.
In a electric standing mixer beat eggs and sugar on high until you get a pale, light yellow color.
Stir in the milk and vanilla extract.
In a bowl, sift together the flour, salt and all the semolina. Slowly add the dry mix to sugar-eggs mixture and mix until incorporated.
Evenly pour into the pan and bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown.
In the meantime make the syrup.
In a small pot add the syrup ingredients and bring to a boil and let cook for 10 minutes.
Once the cake is done and cool, score the surface with a sharp knife, do not cut all the way through, and slowly pour the hot syrup over the cake and let come to room temperature before serve.
