So in Finland lives my friend, with which I recently opened a blog. One of her latest entries is the recipe for famous and delicious homemade pulla.

Ingredients for the dough (about 20 small pulla):

    5 dl milk
    50 g yeast
    1-2 ts salt
    2 dl sugar
    1 tbs cardamom seeds
    1 egg
    about 15 dl flour
    about 150 g butter

For the filling and topping:

    1 egg
    raspberry jam (or strawberry jam, or almond paste)
    whipped cream
    almond chips or pearl sugar

Melt yeast into lukewarm milk. Add salt, sugar, cardamom seeds and egg. Add then flour little by little mixing well. Melt the butter and pour it and keep mixing. Let the dough rest under a cover in a warm and draftless place.
After about half hour, or when the dough doubled its volume, drop it on the table and mold from it small round buns.
Let the buns rest covered for about 15 minutes.
Beat the egg in a bowl with fork until yolk and white are well mixed and brush the buns, add pearl sugar or almond chips on top if you like.
Bake in 225C pre-heated oven for about 5-10 minutes. When they're cooled down, slice them in two horizontally, make small holes in the bottom layers and fill them with some jam. Spray whipped cream all around the jam, and put their "hat" back on.

Take a visit at our blog, if you wish, for more pictures of this recipe (and others). Smiley

It looks so yummy! Seeing as I'm a terrible cook, I might make my boyfriend make it............ Cheesy

Long days and pleasant nights. Smiley

That looks so good!

One question, though - what does dl mean?  Is it an ounce?

Oh it's the european metric..
here's a converter:
Metric vs American volume measurements:

    1 US gallon = 4 liquid quarts = 3.8 liters
    1 liquid quart = 2 liquid pints = 9.5 dl
    1 liquid pint = 2 cups = 4.7 dl
    1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 2.37 dl
    1 cup = 8 fluid ounces = 2.37 dl
    1 US fluid ounce (US fl. oz.) = 29.6 ml
    1 dry quart = 2 dry pints = 1.1 liters
    1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 3 teaspoons = 15 ml
    1 teaspoon (tsp) = 5 ml
    1 liter (L) = 0.264 gallons = 1.06 quarts
    1 milliliter (ml) = 0.034 fl. oz.

does this help? xD

Those......look.....AMAZING! I have Scandinavian heritage and have been trying to experiment with their baking (I think I inherited my sweettooth from my Norwegian side Tongue). I'll have to stick these on the "To Make" list!

And thank you for the conversion chart. So does "dl" stand for deciliter? I was trying to remember my math/science to figure it out.

I'm learning thanks to her so many scandinavian dishes and sweets.. it's simple yet has a delicious memorable element, so I'm growing very fond of them!  Cheesy

***I don't do personal swaps - I was flaked on and it was not a great experience, however I am open to commissions***

I'll have to try out with a different filling, like strawberry mousse or custard...
do you think it could come out good? *-*

Awww, how cute! I'm from Finland and was quite suprised when the word pulla came up Cheesy
My favorite kind of pulla, or bun, is a "voisilmpulla" roughly translated as buttereyebun Cheesy It's the same as these, but before putting in the oven you push a little hole on the top of the pulla and put little piece of butter on it and fine sugar too. Extra yummy!
And other variation is "korvapuusti", kinda cinnamonbun. Again, the dough is the same, but this time you roll the dough to flat, and apply thin layer of butter on it. After that, you sprinkle al lot of cinnamon and sugar on the dough. Next step is to roll the dough to a thick stick and cut onto slightly triangular parts. Last, you take the pulla and turn it to its wide side, push flat. Then sprinkle sugar on top and into the oven! Smiley

Haven't eaten a strawberry-pulla, so can't help with that. Smiley And sorry about my poor explanations, as my english is not the best...  Tongue
