povidlyanka - ukrainian semolina pudding

Povidlyanka (Повидлянка) is an ultra-sweet Ukrainian pudding that's a quick and simple dish to make on a cold evening.

I prefer the flavour of sour cherry jam, but you could use any preserve you like (blackberry, apricot or fig would also be delicious).

Povidlyanka (Повидлянка)
Based on a recipe from www.RussianFoods.com. Serves 2.

  2. Hey, it was really good seeing you last night! It's been a while hasn't it!

    I love the simplicity of this pudding but I'm not a fan of flaked almonds - what other nuts do you think would work well with it?

  3. cupcake - thanks!

    jen - hmmm? depends what jam you use i guess. i'd like apricot and pine nuts.

  4. Hmmm you know I have all of the ingredients for this dish at home! :O And it's turned a bit cooler which means pudding time!
