I'll give you dessert if you help me...

It tastes great! It's one of my favourite desserts! And it's not "brown betty" or "apple charlotte", as our dictionary suggests... So, what might it be in English? Even if you don't know - it's worth giving this one a try...

4 portions

3-4 dl (10-14 US fluid ounces...) of powdered sweet rusk
3 tablespoonfuls of sugar
2 tablespoonfuls of butter / margarine
2,5 dl (8,5 US fluid ounces) cream
3-4 dl (see above!) of cooked, mashed apples

Mix the powdered sweet rusk with sugar and butter (margarine) in a frying pan and brown lightly. Cool. Whip the cream. Put the powder mix, mashed apples and whipped cream in layers in a large bowl or small individual bowls. Should be served newly made. Enjoy :)
BTW, it's called "veiled farm girls" in Norwegian. Don't ask me why...

What a funny name, but it looks very tasty. I like apples in sweets :)

This looks really delicious! I don't know that we have a unique name for it here in the 'States, actually - I've never seen it prepared here. Everywhere I've looked on U.S. sites, it simply describes it as "veiled farm girls, a traditional Norwegian dessert..." Hmmm.

Seriously, it looks so good... I had to look up "rusks" btw to make sure of what to use. Just good ol' bread crumbs to the U.S. contingent. :-)

It's new to me. I had to look up rusk too. Does look tasty though.

I wasn't sure about the rusk either...I think of it as a dried bread crust. MMM. Is the dried rusk sweetened?
