Finnish Cranberry Pudding

Course: Desserts


  • 2 cups Fresh cranberries
  • 3 cups Water
  • Light cream or milk
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Farina or cream of wheat (not instant)


  • In a saucepan, put cranberries and water to boil until the berries pop and the juice is a nice red color. Strain.
  • Add sugar and Farina to the juice. Cook over low heat until thickened, stirring to keep from sticking, about 15 minutes.
  • Cool to room temperature, then beat with a mixer until pink and fluffy.
  • The key is to wait until cool before beating, or it won’t fluff up enough. Serve with light cream or milk poured over it.
