Recipe: Laskiaispullat


In Finland, there is a special piece of pastry for all kinds of occasions and holidays. Christmas has its own treat, so do Easter and: Shrove Tuesday (laskiainen, in Finnish). In the week around laskiainen, people bake the traditional laskiaispullat, sweet buns filled with whipped cream and strawberry jam, and enjoy them together with their families, their colleagues at work or in cafés. Sounds great and looks even better? Don’t you worry! We translated a recipe from Valio and modified a bit. Now you can try it yourself :) Enjoy!


50 g yeast
5 dl milk
2 eggs
2 dl sugar or coconut palm sugar
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tbs cardamom
14 - 16 dl organic wheat flour
150-200 g butter


Sugar or powdered sugar


2 dl whipped cream or soy cream
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla sugar
1 tbsp. strawberry jam


  1. Mix the yeast and the milk (lukewarm).
  2. Add the eggs, sugar, salt and a part of the flours and stir it into dough.
  3. Add the rest of the flour slowly while stirring.
  4. Add the soft butter (room temperature) and keep stirring.
  5. Let the dough rest under a cloth until it approx. doubled in size.
  6. Then form the dough into balls (80-90g each) and let them rest for a while under a cloth.
  7. Coat the balls with egg and some sugar and bake them in the middle level of the oven at 220°C (428°F) for 10-12 minutes or until the buns look nice and crispy.
  8. Whip the cream into whipped cream.
  9. Cut the buns in half and fill it with whipped cream and jam.
  10. Add a little sugar and put the top of the bun back on top.
