Recipe by Mrs B

This recipe comes from the website “Food Down Under”. It caught my eye because of the almonds and the rum (!) and also because it looks a similar idea to the traditional English dessert Syllabub, which was a popular dessert for special occasions and holidays in the seventeenth, eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Having said this, Norwegian Almond Pudding is a thicker consistency and less boozy than Syllabub! Serve with a warm fruit sauce. Recipe posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

  5. Remove pan from heat and stir in rum; allow to cool slightly before next step.
  6. Using a metal spoon, fold in the beaten egg whites; pour dessert into a serving dish and chill.
