#86 baking

086/365 baking, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Sticking to my mum’s Saturday baking tradition I did some Easter baking today.

This variety of the Finnish ‘pulla’  is filled with one of our typical dairy products, called ‘rahka’. It’s translated as ‘quark’ in dictionaries but I haven’t managed to find exactly the same consistency outside Finland. I know Russians use something very similar for their Easter ‘paskha’.

The fact that I only bake these particular buns once a year for Easter makes them extra yummy. Traditions are important in bringing some permanence into the hectic and constantly changing world.

    Looks delicious – and so right about traditions. It is what binds a family together.

    That’s so true, Susan. It’s so nice to enjoy the yearly family traditions.
