Easy Danish Christmas Eve Rice Porridge (Risengrød) Recipe

For Christmas Eve dinner, families in Denmark start the meal by giving everyone at the table a small bowl of warm porridge topped with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar and a pat of butter on top called Risengrød (pronounced risen-groo with a hint of a d sound at the end.)  One lucky person at the table will find a whole almond in the bottom of their empty bowl and will win the almond gift – usually candy, marzipan, or other small treat.   Save this recipe to your Pinterest Boards for later!

Vegtable Garden Birthday Cake


My in laws are dedicated and fantastic gardeners, mother-in-laws side in particular. Summer family gatherings are a special treat because everyone's offerings to dinner table are cock full of home grown vegetables.


Home grown vegetables and fishing trip bounty at a Four of July family pot luck.
I contributed the beet salad. Read my Russina Vinegrette Salad reipe on Lazy Budget Chef here!

So it made perfect sense, when gathering for birthday party to serve a gardening birthday cake to the guest of honor. Can you believe this is a homemade vegetable garden cake?!


Pin this vegetable garden birthday cake idea for later!



Husband’s cousin made this adorable garden cake for her dad. So clever and everything is eatable!
She made the garden shed from rice Krispy treats covered in fondant. The garden boarders are pretzel sticks wrapped in fondant, and filled with a generous amount of icing and fondant vegetables.

The piece de resistance is the comical bunny diving head first into the carrot patch. Silly rabbit!


 Bunny butts make me giggle every. single. time.

She left no thoughtful detail behind and made the cake with dairy free ingredients so I could enjoy a slice too. How thoughtful!

Would you want this as your birthday cake?
