Cook the apples with 25 gram butter, 125 gram sugar
and 2 tablespoons water for 15 minutes. Put them on the bottom of a
greased pudding mold. Put the remaining ingredients together and beat
for 5 minutes, using an electric mixer. Pour the batter on top of the
apples. Cover with buttered foil. Put the mold in a large pan full of
water, bring to the boil, turn the heat low and put the lid on. Steam
for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Add water if necessary. Turn the pudding
on a plate.
Stir fry the rye bread with the butter and half of
the sugar for 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool down. Cook the apples
with the remaining sugar and 2 tablespoons of water for 15 minutes and
puree them. Put half of the rye bread in a dish, put the apple puree
on the rye bread and the berries on top of the apple puree. Top off
with the remaining rye bread and finish with a layer of whipped cream.
On Grundlovsdag (Constitution day) in
Denmark one celebrates
that on the 5th of
June 1849 the constitution
was introduced. The Danish are only half happy with it, it seems, as
they declared half a public holiday, only starting from 12.00 noon.
