Flotegrot, Norwegian Cream Pudding

Deb Lund


This was a Christmas treat every year at my home as well as at the Norwegian picnics in the area when I was growing up. Thought I would post since I noticed that it is a rare recipe. All I can say is those Norwegians know how to make delicious things out of very little.
