You know the pudding is a success when the butterfat rises to the top after the flour is added. From the Minnesota Scandinavian chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cinnamon, to taste


  1. Simmer cream and water very slowly, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Stir in hot milk and beat well.
  4. Pudding should be very smooth and creamy.
