Beer dessert. Õllesupp

ollesupp1 (3)An ancient dessert served at weddings in many areas of Estonia; made from milk, eggs, beer and sugar.

Maybe it sounds strange, but believe me. It tastes wonderful. Very light and sweet and unusual dessert for summertime.

  1. Mix together beaten eggs, milk and sugar.
  2. Bring to boil, but do not boil NB!! stir constantly and keep heat low. Let simmer, while the mixture is thickened.
  3. add beer, constantly stirring. Do not boil!
  4. Let cool. Traditionally beer soup is served with bread cubes. For photo, I prepared a rosted mixture from bread crumbs, nuts, oats and sugar.

  2. This is really interesting! May I know what kind of beer did you use for this recipe? I would love to try it soon! 😀


    1. I did this using usual light beer, but originally our ancestors drank dark beer. I suggest use different options to find most tasty 🙂
