Norwegian Noodle Pudding

31 Aug

This cinnamon and raisin pudding dessert is similar to rice pudding, but it is made with noodles instead of rice.  It can be enjoyed hot or cold.

-By Carrie (Strommen) Lennie


1/2 pound medium-width noodles
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
3 tsp almond extract, or to taste
3 eggs
2 cups milk


  1. Boil the noodles in salted water until just barely tender. They will finish cooking in the oven so they should be slightly underdone. Strain the noodles in a colander, rinsing with cold water. Drain well and place in a bowl.
  2. Melt the butter and put half in a large casserole or baking dish, tilting the dish so that the sides and bottom are greased. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place the empty casserole in the oven.
  3. Add cinnamon, raisins, sugar, salt, and almond extract to the well-drained noodles.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, add milk, and beat again until well blended. Add to the noodles with the remainder of the melted butter. Stir well.
  5. Pour into the heated casserole and bake until the top is golden brown, 1 hour or longer.
