This recipe for Risalamande is properly the most famous and traditional Danish Christmas dessert that you can make. Risalamande is a rice pudding with vanilla, almonds and whipped cream, and it’s typically served together with warm cherry sauce. The word Risalamande comes from the French word Riz à l’amande, which directly translated means rice with almonds. There are many different ways of spelling the word, Ris a la mande, Ris à l’amande and Ris ala mande just to name some, however, we have been told that the most correct way should be Risalamande so that’s the way we spell it. Risalamande is more or less only served as a Christmas dessert right after the dinner at Christmas eve. In Denmark, and most of the Nordic and European countries, we celebrate Christmas at Christmas eve and not at Christmas day like in the US. The typical way of spending Christmas eve is getting together with family, have a nice Christmas dinner and exchange presents. The typical Danish Christmas eve dinner consist of roasted pork or duck served with boiled and glazed potatoes, braised red cabbage and brown sauce, and for dessert Risalamande.

Ingredients

  • 2.25 dl (1 cup) short-grained white rice (pudding rice)
  • 1 dl (1/2 cup) water
  • 1 liter (4.25 cups) milk
  • 1-2 vanilla beans
  • 1 portion Danish rice pudding
  • 150 g (5.5 oz) almonds
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 dl (2 cups) heavy cream

Directions

  • Start by making a portion of traditional Danish rice pudding. You can eat the traditional Danish rice pudding as it is, therefore we have made a separate recipe for rice pudding – however, you can also just follow the instructions below which is slightly changes because it’s used to make Risalamande. The only difference between the two recipes for rice pudding is that the Risalamande version of the rice pudding has vanilla in it and no salt. However, you can use both versions of the rice pudding recipes to make the Risalamande, we have done that many times.
