I don’t have that much inspiration or energy to write anything right now, but I’ve been baking a lot lately and I want to post some pictures.
For my fiancé’s birthday party yesterday I made my first ever cream cake. It turned out great, and I was quite surprised how easy it turned out to be to make it.
Earlier this month we celebrated fastlagstidsdag/laskiaistiistai here in Finland, and this is the typical kind of sweet bun that we eat then, called fastlagsbulle or laskiaispulla. I hadn’t eaten these for a few years, since the ready-made ones you can buy in the store always have dairy cream on them and I’ve just been too busy, or too lazy, to make my own.
Some time ago it also came into my mind to bake my own bread, and I’ve done that a few times now. I just love eating bread when it comes straight out of the oven. This one is called something like “Hungarian bread” (even though I have no idea if it actually is anything typically Hungarian about it), it has potatoes in it together with the flour, and it is really tasty when it is fresh.
If anyone is interested in the recipes, just tell me and I will post them.
