Delve into the heart of Danish dessert traditions with Rødgrød med Fløde, a sumptuous red berry pudding that encapsulates the essence of Danish “hygge.” This refreshing and satisfying dessert celebrates the vibrant flavors of summer berries and embodies the comforting coziness of Danish culture with every spoonful.


  • Mixed Red Berries: 32 ounces (about 900 grams) – A blend of strawberries, raspberries, and red currants, with optional rhubarb.
  • Water: 8 ounces (about 240 ml)
  • Sugar: 5.3 ounces (about 150 grams), adjust to taste
  • Potato Starch: 1.5 ounces (about 3 tablespoons), mixed with a little water to create a slurry
  • Lemon Juice: 0.5 ounce (about 1 tablespoon)
  • Heavy Cream: For serving, quantity as desired


  1. Prepare the Fruit: Clean and prep the fruits. For rhubarb, if used, peel and cut into small pieces. Berries may be left whole or halved if large.
  2. Cook the Fruits: In a large saucepan, combine the fruits, water, and half the sugar. Simmer over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes until the fruits soften and release their juices. Taste and add more sugar if desired.
  3. Thicken the Pudding: Gradually stir the potato starch slurry into the fruit mixture. Continue stirring on the heat for a few minutes until the pudding thickens. Avoid boiling to preserve the starch’s thickening properties.
  4. Adjust Flavors: Add lemon juice, then adjust sweetness with additional sugar if needed.
  5. Cool and Set: Transfer the pudding to a large bowl or individual serving dishes. Allow to cool to room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours until set.
  6. Serve: Present the chilled pudding with a generous pour of heavy cream.

Serving Suggestion: For a lighter option, consider serving with milk or a dollop of Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream.
