Koldskål & kammerjunker – Homemade Danish Buttermilk Soup & Biscuits

Bowl of buttermilk soup

The weather has finally started to change for the better here in Denmark and spring is here. Its warmer, the winter jacket is –almost – put away and the flowers have begun to bloom. Ahh I love it!

A dish that us Danes love to eat when the weather is warmer is called Koldskål – directly translated ‘coldbowl’. Doesn’t sound very appetizing, I know. But its lovely. Basically it’s a cold buttermilk soup with vanilla and lemon. It’s really good; sweet, creamy and a bit tangy and perfect for summer. We often serve it with small biscuits called kammerjunker or strawberries.

Method:

Beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar until the mixture is stiff and sugar is dissolved.

Pour in the buttermilk and season with lemon juice and a little grated lemon zest.

Ingredients – (2 baking sheets, about 100 pcs.)

250 g wheat flour

1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

125 g butter

75 g sugar

1 egg

Method:

Heat the oven to 175 °C.

Mix the flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder together in a bowl. Crumble the butter into the flour mixture, add sugar and beaten egg, and knead until you have a firm dough.

Form dough into rolls and cut them into small cubes. Place them on the baking sheet and flatten with a finger.

Bake for 10 minutes, turn off the heat and leave the oven door open another 10 minutes.

Let them cool off on a rack. Store in an airtight container.

Serve up a bowl of cold buttermilk soup with a handful of kammerjunker biscuits on top.

Enjoy!

    I always thought those crisp, sweet little oat cakes went with it! I’ll have to try your way, too
