From Grandma’s Kitchen: Serradurra

Serradurra is a Portuguese sawdust pudding. It is layered with a cream mixture and powdered biscuits.


20-30 Marie biscuits

1 tin sweetened condensed milk

2 cups heavy cream

½ tsp vanilla extract

A handful of almonds (chopped)



Crush the biscuits till it becomes a powder. Keep aside.

Put the cream in a bowl and add the vanilla extract.

Whip the cream till stiff peaks form. Add the condensed milk and fold it in gently.

Take a bowl and put in a layer of biscuits at the bottom. Then pour some of the cream on top. Put biscuits on top of the cream. Repeat the biscuit and cream layers. The cream should be the top layer, sprinkled with a bit of biscuit powder and almonds.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and enjoy!
