We had a baking day with the kids. We made pulla!
It's a traditional Finnish coffee bread with gardamon.

have a bite!

You need:

5 dl milk
50 g yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 dl sugar
1 table spoon ground gardamon
1 egg
about 12-14 dl white flour
150 g butter or margarine

Melt the yeast to lukewarm water. Add salt, sugar, gardamon and egg. Add flour little by little, beat until the dough is smooth and elastic. Add soft butter or margarine in the end. Kneed well. Don't make the dough too hard. You can also leave some of the flour to mix it in when you bake.

can you see how it's cut?

Cover and leave to rest/rise in a warm place until doubled (20 min). Knead the dough to get the air out. And bake what ever shape buns you want. Let the buns rise in a warm place until doubled. Brush with egg and sprinkle with sugar.
The big round one I made is filled up with butter and sugar and rolled , then made as a loop. Then made cuts with scissors every one or two cm and bended the pieces left and right, left and right.. etc.. Lol maybe yall need a drawing  :D

Bake at 200-225 'celsius (about 400F) for 20 to 30 minutes. Check occasionally because the bottom burns easily.

the kids made these ♥ i let them use their own imagination :P
