Danish Strawberry Pudding /Jordbaer Grod

For” D” I am now in Denmark and here is a little information on it’s cuisine.
Danish cuisine , originating from the peasant population’s own local produce, was enhanced by cooking techniques developed in the late 19th century and the wider availability of goods after the Industrial Revolution. The open sandwiches, known as smorrebrod, which in their basic form are the usual fare for lunch, can be considered a national specialty when prepared and decorated with a variety of fine ingredients. Hot meals traditionally consist of ground meats, such as frikadeller (meat balls), or of more substantial meat and fish dishes such as flaeskesteg or kogt torsk  with mustard sauce and trimmings.

I made this strawberry pudding and it is absolutely delicious .So let’s start the recipe .yum
