Recipe: Risengrød – Nordic Rice Pudding, with Cinnamon and Butter

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Today I want to share with you a very traditional Nordic meal: Rice pudding. In Denmark, we call it risengrød. We eat this at Christmas time especially, but many people enjoy eating it throughout the year. I personally love to eat rice pudding when I’m craving a warm dessert. 
It’s very easy to make, and the result is very delicious! 
Ingredients (serves 4):
Pudding:160 g rice (for pudding)
A little water
1 L milk
Cinnamon sugar:4 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
Put the rice in a pot, and add a little water, just until the rice is covered. Cook the rice and bring it to a simmer. Most of the water will have evaporated at this point.
Add the milk. Keep stirring until the milk boils. Lower the heat. Leave the rice pudding to cook on a low heat for at least 40 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. 
Make the cinnamon sugar: mix the ingredients together in a bowl.
Serve the still warm risengrød in a small bowl, with a little cinnamon sugar and a bit of butter on top.
Enjoy! If you have any questions or concerns just drop me a comment! 
God appetit!
