Yes forgot the almond is a tradition and only one can be in but the trick is to keep it hidden until bowl is empty. People will go for seconds to find it but someone could have been hiding it the whole time. In my family we usually also use a chocolate gift or in Denmark a marzipan pig in a gift box, one of those traditions again, TRY IT.
My family really enjoyed this for Christmas Eve dinner. I did double it and added a couple of cinnamon sticks to it while it was cooking. Great recipe
Oops! Forgot to add that its also tradition to dab on some good ol' cherry sauce =-) Or atleast any kind of berry sauce lol. We typically use blackberry jam heated in the microwave! Mmmm Mmm Good!
I love this pudding. I made this today as part of the Aussie/Kiwi Scandanavian part of their round the world tour. My husband and I really enjoyed this. It is very similar to one I used to make when my children were small. I quite successfully cut the recipe in half as there are only two of us. There is still some left, but this is so delicious I don't expect it to last long. I served it with a homemade cherry sauce, omitting the suggested garnish of tangerine and shredded chocolate/chocolate curls. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
