Spread the love by sharing this recipe, so others can enjoy it too!

Risengrød or Danish rice pudding in English is a very traditional and famous dish in Denmark. Risengrød is mostly served in the month of December and especially in the time around the Christmas days. We prefer to eat it with cinnamon sugar (lots of it😄) and a tablespoon of butter🧈.

This old-fashioned Rice Pudding recipe is so creamy with the perfect texture. Only a handful of ingredients and a little patience are needed to make this old-time favorite breakfast, dessert, or dinner.
