Christmas Calendar 2021 Day 23 - Indulgent rice pudding


Tomorrow it is Christmas Eve, so you should consider to start the preparation of the classic Danish Christmas dessert  ris a la mande already today. It takes time to boil the rice porridge, and afterwards the rice porridge has to cool down, before you can add in the whipped cream.

This time I decide to prepare the rice porridge the traditional way, so by cooking in a cooking pot instead of the preparing it in the microwave own. When you boil the rice porridge the traditional way, you need to have patience, as you should the cooking slowly and gently, so you do not end up with a burned rice porridge. 

I have found this recipe in the weekly magazine "Hendes Verden" (issue 50/2021). My modification is, that I have added a pinch of salt as well as mixing the vanilla corn with ½ teaspoon sugar.

Indulgent rice pudding: - 4-6 portions
  • 1 dl porridge rice
  • 1 dl water
  • 5 dl milk (full fat or use what you have in the refrigerator)
  • 1 vanilla pod - cut and vanilla corn removed and separated by ½ teaspoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2½ tablespoon sugar
  • almond split from 100 g almonds without skin
  • 4 dl dairy whipping cream - 38% fat
  • cherry sauce or cherries in rum
  1. Start by cooking the porridge rice in the water for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in the milk little by little together with the salt , vanilla corns and the vanilla pod.
  3. Gentle bring the rice porridge to the simmer, stirring regular. 
  4. Let the rice porridge simmer gently for 50 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile prepare the almond by removing the skin. Place the almonds in boiling water, the skin is remove slipping the almond after 4-5 minutes standing time in the hot water.
  6. Chop the almonds.
  7. After the cooking of the rice porridge stir the in the sugar.
  8. When the rice porridge is cooled down, remove the vanilla pod. 
  9. Stir in the chopped almonds.
  10. Whipped the dairy whipping cream. If you add the whipped dairy cream in warm rice porridge, when the whipped cream will melt !!!
  11. Stir in the whipped cream gentle, ittle by little, almost like folding in the cream.
  12. Heat up the cherry sauce.
  13. Serve and enjoy :-) Happy Christmas :-)
