Voisilmäpulla (Butter Eye Buns)

Voisilmäpulla (Butter Eye Buns) Ever on a mission to replicate my heavenly coffee shop experiences from my visits to Finland, I made voisilmäpullat this month. I’d eaten a few of these buttery buns back in January, and doodled notes in my journal: they look like little butter...

Cranberry Bannocks

Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

  Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls It was never going to take long for me to introduce a chocolate element to my Nordic baking, and it wasn’t entirely without inspiration either. I’d eaten a divine cinnamon roll in a cafe in Copenhagen, it was a point-to-that-one selection...

Deliciously Vegan Swedish Cinnamon Rolls

Deliciously Vegan Swedish Cinnamon Rolls I’d had a wonderfully exhausting afternoon exploring a wintery Skansen in Stockholm, Sweden’s outdoor heritage museum, and I was in desperate need of a coffee break and somewhere warm to thaw out after my walk back to town. I found...

korvapuusti

Korvapuusti (Finnish Cinnamon buns)

Lincolnshire Plum Bread {my version of}
