This traditional Norwegian recipe was passed down from my Great Aunt and is an amazing breakfast food that will leave you very full with just a few bites from the incredibly rich nature of this dish. The dish is so rich that it is recommended to serve this is small mini bowls for reasonable serving sizes of about 1/4 cup.

Rømmegrøt is Norwegian for porridge and can be made with milk, flour, better and salt. This dish is usually prepared for special occasions and holidays. To make it extra special you can drizzle the dish with melted butter, sprinkle of sugar and a dash of cinnamon.

Here’s how to make it.


1 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Sugar
dash Salt


Bring the heavy cream to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.  Add in the flour and whisk for 2-4 minutes until the butter separates from the cream and the flour is cooked, drain off the butter (the amount depends on the cream). Add the milk, sugar and salt and whisk until nice and smooth.

Pour immediately into small bowls, garnish with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar and serve immediately.
