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!

At the very last minute, my schedule changed and I could attend a friend’s tea party.

Which also meant I had to scramble at the last minute to make a tasty and food allergy friendly sweet treat.

I noticed a lonely package of last fall’s pumpkin puree in the freezer. I decided to give pumpkin bread a try. My quick and easy recipe is cheap to make and, more importantly, delicious!

1 and 1/3 Cups of white sugar

3 Tablespoons of canola oil

2 Eggs

1 cup of pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)

Step By Step How to Make Pumpkin Quick Bread Recipe

1. Begin by combining in a bowl the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice.

2.In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, and canola oil until it is smooth and creamy. I like to use a hand mixer like this one for the best results.

3. Stir in the pumpkin puree and vanilla into the bowl with the wet ingredients.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in batches, mixing thoroughly after each addition.

5. Pour the pumpkin bread batter into a greased and flowered bread pan and bake it in a 350 degree (F ) oven for 60 minutes or until done.


6. Eat. Enjoy. Repeat!
