Laskiaispullat – Finnish winter buns

The end of February and the beginning of March usually bring sunshine and warmer weathers. Birds are starting to sing and brighter day are here, Hurray! 🙂

Part of this time of the year is also “Laskiainen”. Families, and especially children, head to sledding hills with different kinds of sleds. The other part of this tradition is to eat “Laskiaispulla”. Basically a traditional bun filled with jam or almond mass and whipped cream. These delights are soooooo goooood, even better when the buns come straight from the oven! 😛

This year I took a head start, the actual Laskiainen is next Sunday the 26th. 😉 I did the tradiotional buns, and also a Bun Cake. Here are some photos from the process:
