Traditional danish koldskål or Danish cold buttermilk soup is traditionally served immediately, with kammerjunkere or nilla wafers.

Perfect on a hot summer day!

  • 1/2 cup of sugar (or use homemade vanilla sugar!)
  • 1 liter of buttermilk
  • beans from 1/2 vanilla pod (if you don’t use vanilla sugar)


Start by mixing sugar (here you can use your homemade vanilla sugaror just regular sugar), vanilla beans and pasteurized real eggs until it turns white and fluffy.

When white and fluffy you add the buttermilk and mix it in.

Finally serve with Nilla Wafers or Cornflakes.



Enjoy immediately – and enjoy the summer.
