Creating memories that last

Bitterkoekjes Pudding (Semolina Pudding)

This is something that we used to get after Sunday dinner. I remember how it tasted and although it was never that popular when we were children, I have never forgotten it and I just loved it.

Today I have recreated that childhood memory and added a few more things of my own. So this way, it will be a memory to last a next generation.

It is made of the hard grain left after the milling of flour and similar to eating a tapioca-grit like cookie flavoured dessert! I have added Vanilla sugar, a little bit of Amaretto di Saronno and two spoons of white castor sugar to it, cut up four almond cookies into little bits and mixed them through the pudding and put a few almond cookies on top. Alternatively you can put cherry jelly or walnuts with honey on top.

Bitterkoekjes Pudding is a product made by Dr Oetker. Here you find information (in Dutch) about it: Dr Oetker website


Leendert van Gemeren

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.

This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
