The Dessert Menu
Don’t forget to eat dessert after a good meal. You always have room for a little sweet after a heavy meal. In Norway we also eat “kaffemat” or cakes with coffee after dinner and dessert.
Christmas Rice Cream with Raspberries
You cannot tell a Norwegian that his classic Christmas doesn’t include a dessert of rice porridge, with whipped cream, vanilla, sugar, and delicious raspberries.
I’ve put together this recipe so you guys can do the classic round of who’s the big winner of the family Christmas dinner. Make sure to put one white almond (remove the brown skin).
Veiled Peasant Girls
Veiled Peasant Girls is the royal dessert of the kingdom of Norway. I don’t see many making this dessert at home, but do read about it whenever the royals invite the ministers for a special dinner.
It’s classic Norwegian ingredients. How they would make a dessert out of leftover breadcrumbs from cutting bread for breakfast. To using the “ugly” apples for a sweet apple jam.
Norwegian Strawberries with heavy cream
This recipe is considered as one of the classic desserts for a Norwegian summer. If you visit someone here and they don’t serve you this you should be a little disappointed. Super simple, and everyone should be able to make it. This is the taste of a Norwegian summer
Raspberry & Strawberry Panna Cotta
While you serve Panna Cotta al Tiramisu for the adults at the party, this would be perfect for kids. This sweet simple dessert toped with fresh strawberries.
The Lemon thyme and strawberries bring out the fresh sweetness of this dessert. The only problem would be mom stealing dessert from her kids, because this just looks to tempting.
The fruits dedicated to this dessert, makes a good combination of flavors. Sweet, sour, bitter all together in a colorful blend. A treat worth trying after a meal of brown stew.
Raspberry Lemon Mousse
This is fireworks, a perfect dessert to finish New years eve, or 4th of july. It’s simple to make, got fresh flavors and it’s decoration is simple. The dessert is quite heavy to eat, so watch your portioning.
Lemon and Lime Mousse
Great combination of sweet, sour and “sweet-sour” lime taste. A heavy dessert that takes no time to make. I’m sure you would ace this without much trouble. The need of very few ingredients makes it a low cost dish to make! It’s also gluten free.
Troll Cream is no dessert for kids, It’s bitter lingonberry flavor gives it an adult touch. It’s really quick to make, but you might have to check out IKEA to find the lingonberries. Substitute the lingonberry with Blackberry and you’d get a much more “friendly” dessert, and ingredients wont be hard to find. Great dessert if you want to try something different!
Lemon Mousse is always a favorite. It’s a smooth sour sweet dessert. It’s quite a bite and will fill you up, so watch your portioning. If you want it to last longer I suggest eating it with a “salt spoon”.
Norwegian Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon Rolls is always a winner. Well when they smell to good to resist, and taste so freaking good that you can’t stop eating. So easy to make, that anyone could do it.
Norwegian Svele (Lapper)
Svele is a favorite in the south of Norway. I probably ate one every day through Junior High. Fresh it tastes sweet and super delicious. Topping not needed, but with some fresh strawberries it goes on and beyond of deliciousness.
