Old fashioned Rum Pudding / Aleksandrapudding

A recipe for a traditional desert from matprat.no

traditional badge2_thumb[1]In the old days, rum was often used as an ingredient in desserts. If there was a party at a farm rum pudding was often served. Try this variation of the pudding with delicious cherry sauce!

This is a Norwegian version of the Danish rum pudding I posted a few weeks ago. Deserts in the old days here in Norway were very often dairy based. Milk, cream, sour cream or lesser known local variations. And most large farms at least had an orchard and rows of berry bushes. Even wealthy farmers never bought more then they had to.

      For a long time through the seventies and eighties and almost to this day Norwegians have been ashamed of their own culinary traditions and has favoured French, Italian and Asian recipes. Luckily our most famous cooks have managed to turn this trend and created a new interest in Norwegian traditional cooking. I come from country stock and have always enjoyed traditional food and enjoy the interest my traditional post receive both from my English and Norwegian speaking visitors 🙂

    What a beautiful pudding you have brought for the Fiesta Friday. 🙂 I don’t do rum, but I am sure I could replace this with something else. And to those who are into rum, they would enjoy this even more. I hope you have a lovely week.
