Ingredients (4 people)


  1. Roughly cube the rye bread and bake in the oven, without adding any fat, until golden brown. Set aside in a mixing bowl.

  2. Put the water in a pan and add the orange slices, sugar, cloves, cinnamon stick, bay and nutmeg. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add the red wine and heat without letting it boil. Pour the liquid over the rye bread, add the raisins. Let it all rest for at least 1 hour.

  4. Melt a knob of butter in a pan and add the soaked rye bread and raisins without the juice. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, then place in individual serving bowls.

  5. Pour elderberry cordial (or blackcurrant, if elderberry not available) over each serving.

  6. Top with thick fresh or whipped cream (very cold).

  7. Serve immediately.
