Danish Rice Pudding (Risengrod)

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. Cook: 40 min.


3 servings

WE use this old-fashioned traditional Danish dish as our first course on Christmas Eve, but many other times as well. It has a smooth, delicate flavor and is true comfort food.


  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons medium grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. In a small heavy saucepan, bring the milk, rice and salt to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
  2. Spoon pudding into individual dishes. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops. Dot with butter. Serve immediately.
