Vispipuuro means “whipped porridge” in Finnish, and is a dessert porridge made of wheat semolina and berries whisked to an airy, almost whipped cream consistency. Traditionally, the ingredients are semolina flour wheat (a coarse grind of durum wheat, is a milled grain staple used throughout Europe) and lingonberry, but there are variations of this dish. Other berries and fruit that can be used are cranberries, currants, apricots, gooseberries and strawberries.

This was my childhood favorite porridge, which my Grandmother made quite often. I have memories from my Grandmother standing in kitchen and beating this porridge feverishly with hand whisk. Then it was served with cold milk. So yummy! Fluffy but from the taste little bit tangy..Great snack or dessert… This is what you will need:

  • 8 dl water
  • 3 dl loganberries (fresh, frozen)
  • 1dl sugar (to taste)
  • pinch of salt
  • 150 ml semolina,I used Kamut semolina but Wheat is fine too..

Boil the water, add the berries and let simmer in the water as long as they become mashed (about 15 minutes). Rub the berries through the sieve. Strain the liquid and pour it back into the saucepan.

Heat up to a boil. Add sugar, salt and the semolina while mixing. Let bubble for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally until the mixture seems thick enough.Be careful because this porridge tends to burn and stick to the bottom of the pot easily!

Take off from the stove and let the porridge cool down. Whip the cooled down porridge with a mixer until the volume should approximately double. Serve with cold milk poured on top. Or if you want to serve this fancy..Serve with vanilla sauce..
