It's snowing, and it has continued to do so the whole day! That much for the "spring is in the air" -feelings of last week! Well, there are two sides in every coin. :) I'm sure every skier in the Helsinki area is hoping for even more snow, where as us summer folks are counting days for... well, hoping, wishing, praying that in a few weeks time all snow would be gone!
In the meantime silky loveliness of some coconut flavoured semolina pudding with the hidden gem of half a nectarine in the bottom will keep the spirits high!
Recipe from Samettisia makuja (Original French title of the book Délices de Lait) by Laurence & Gilles Laurendon
400 ml coconut milk
1 dl water
3/4 dl semolina
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons coconut flakes
1. Heat the coconut milk and water in a saucepan.
2. Add the semolina and let boil for about 8 minutes, mixing every now and then.
3. Season with sugar.
4. Enjoy warm or cold.
My own addition:
-Slice half a nectarine and place the slices in the bottom of the bowl/plate you'll use to serve your pudding.
- Fill the bowl/plate with the semolina pudding.
-Decorate with some coconut flakes and brown sugar.
This is Helsinki. Now. :)
