Swedish Rice Pudding ….Mmmmm…

A few days ago I made Swedish Rice Pudding. The pudding suits perfectly after a light dish such as fish, soup or vegetables. The final result was higher than my expectations and it tasted very yummy… 😀

😀

Recipe (makes 4-6 portions) 

  • 3 dl water
  • 1 ½ dl short grain rice
  • 7 dl whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 12 flaked almonds

Heat the water. Place the short grain rice in the same pot and let it boil on a low heat until the water has boiled in. Add the milk. Let the porridge simmer on a low heat with the lid on, until the rice is soft, 35 minutes; don’t stir. Thereafter, add the sugar and the salt.

Whisk the eggs and mix them with the porridge and the flaked almonds.

Pour the mixture into a greased tin.

Bake low in the oven on 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.

Let it cool down and serve the pudding with strawberry jam or  fruit conserve.

Happy Rice Pudding! 😀

Swedish “Wienerstänger” – Wiener canapés

The fourth cookie is named “Wienerstänger” (in English Wiener canapés). It is an absolutely delicious biscuit with a flavour of strawberry and buttery vanilla dough. Do not forget to pour the topping over the cookie when it’s cold, otherwise it will just disappear when the biscuit is warm… 😀

I don’t know where the name of the biscuit comes from… but one guessing could be that it comes from the Swedish word “Wienervals” (in Eng. Viennese waltz)… 😀

Recipe (makes 20) 

Dough

  • 125 gr butter
  • 0.75 dl caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 3 ½ dl plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ dl strawberry jam

Decoration 

  • 0.75 dl icing/confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C.

Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Stir butter and sugar until fluffy.

Pour the egg into the mixture.

Add the flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder and work all together until you get a smooth dough.

Let it rest in the fridge for about five minutes.

Roll into two lengths. Place them afterwards onto the baking sheet.

Make a dip in each length.

With a piping bag, pipe the dip on each lengths, with strawberry jam.

Bake in the middle of the oven, 10-12 minutes. Meanwhile stir the icing/confectioners’ sugar and water together.

Cut the lengths into 2 cm pieces when they are still warm.

Let them cool.

Pour the topping over the lengths and let the biscuits rest in the fridge to get the perfect flavour.

You can store them in the fridge or in the freezer.

Without topping!
