Today, I have a delicious recipe for you. Pulla are Finnish sweet yeast rolls. And it reminds me of cinnamon rolls, buts its lighter and less sweet. I first ate Pulla 3 years ago and we still bake them. This time I shaped them in a special way, but you can also bake the Pulla in a loaf pan or a springform baking tin. Or you can just make buns if you want. You have a lot of possibilities…
Finnish Pulla (two bread rolls)
For the dough:
- 1kg flour
- 150gr butter
- 5dl milk
- 42gr fresh yeast
- 1tbsp salt
- 2tbsp cardamon
- 1 egg
- 150gr sugar
For the filling:
- 250gr soft butter
- cinnamon for the filling
- sugar for the filling
- Put the flour, salt and cardamon in a bowl and mix everything together.
- Resolve the yeast and a pinch of sugar into a bit water.
- Melt the butter and mix it with the milk.
- Give the milk mixture and the yeast to the flour and knead it with the kitchen machine.
- Let the dough raise until it has doubled in size. (ca. 1-2h)
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and take the butter out of the fridge. Perhaps you have to prepare your baking tin.
- Split the dough into two parts and roll them out or press flat with hands.
- Spread the butter on each of the two parts and cover with a layer of sugar and a layer of cinnamon.
- Put one dough onto the other and do this or roll it up and cut into 4cm thick slices.
- Put them into the tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy! -Your Lila
