Finnish Pulla Recipe

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…

  6. Preheat the oven to 180°C and take the butter out of the fridge. Perhaps you have to prepare your baking tin.
  7. Split the dough into two parts and roll them out or press flat with hands.
  8. Spread the butter on each of the two parts and cover with a layer of sugar and a layer of cinnamon.
  9. Put one dough onto the other and do this or roll it up and cut into 4cm thick slices.
  10. Put them into the tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
