Home / Recipes / Risalamande - The Traditional Danish Rice Pudding
Risalamande gets its name after the French ris à l’amande which typically means Rice and Almonds, the two main ingredients of this dessert. A day before Christmas Danish families prepare risengrød or the rice pudding and then on the eve of the Christmas day the leftover pudding is used as Risalamande by adding whipped cream, vanilla and almonds. Apart from Denmark and it is also prepared in most of the Nordic and European countries. Delicately sweet and creamy, this pudding is served with warm cherry sauce as topping. There is also a tradition of leaving one whole almond in the dish and whoever finds it gets a special prize. Now, that's what I call absolutely delicious fun food.
