traditional badge2Tilslørte bondepiker (”Veiled peasant girls”) is a traditional Norwegian dessert. If served on a hike the dish is often called Tilslørte Speiderpiker (Veiled Girl Scouts).

The dish is layered, with mashed apples (or other mashed fruits like plums or berries like strawberries or raspberries) at the bottom, followed by a layer of whipped cream, a layer of toasted bread- or rusk crumbs, followed by another layer of whipped cream and usually a thin layer of crumbs on top.

It is typically served in transparent glass bowls or drinking glasses. Tilslørte bondepiker was very popular before the introduction of commercial ice cream.

    It does look kid and adult friendly. We have lots of apples on our property, so will save this recipe for when they are ripe. Thanks for sharing it with us.


  6. Hi there – I am one of the co hosts this week for Fiesta Friday. You are most welcome with these pretty veiled peasant girls! (Though I now can’t get the idea of mashed potato out of my head having read that first comment!!!) This is the sort of thing that my mum used to make – layers of fruit and cream topped with crushed biscuits – that was in Kenya – isn’t it funny how similar recipes can be in totally different places? Thank you for bringing these to the party – Happy Fiesta Friday!

      I have travelled a lot both in Europe, Africa (Been to Kenya too)and Asia and have eaten a lot of food that reminds me of food I’m used to from Norway where I was born and still live 🙂


      • My mum used to make these layered puddings in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Reading your comment I was reminded that there was a huge and happy expat community in Nairobi in those days and that my best friend, Lotte, was in fact Norwegian…
