Cinnamon rolls are famous all around the world. We are offering you a cinnamon bun with a Finnish twist, and we mean not only the taste, but also a shape of the roll. In Finland, this bun is commonly called “korvapuusti”, which in literal translation means “slapped ears”. The Nordic version of the cinnamon bun has slightly different spices than the traditional American one, so we hope you will be positively surprised!
Nordic cardamom bun
This is the most common bun for coffee breaks in every Finnish office, home, and cafeteria! The secret of this Finnish cardamom bun, called “pulla”, lies in its simplicity. These are not too sweet, but definitely not savory. Pullas are simply buttery yeast buns with cardamom and delicious crunchy sugar on top.
Do you often have a feeling that sweets are looking at you and whispering to your ear “Eat me”? Well, with this bun it will definitely be the case! Our traditional butter bun has a delicious sweet buttery center. In Finnish, this bun is called “voisilmäpulla”, and it's for those of us who love Nordic cardamom buns, but want something to look for in the middle!
Finnish archipelago bread
A dark bread with a sweet and malty flavor. The archipelago bread is delicious when fresh and also tasty a few days later when the complex flavors have had a chance to evolve. It's the perfect pairing with smoked salmon or cheese.
In Finland, the 1st of May (known as "Vappu") is widely celebrated. On this day, fragile and curvy funnel cakes ("tippaleipä") are served alongside with donuts ("munkki"), mead ("sima"), and sparkling wine. The celebration of Vappu starts already on the last day of April, and typically ends with a picnic the day after, if the Finnish spring weather allows it.
Funnel cakes are deep fried pastries topped with confectionary sugar. They are very crispy and fragile. Our tippaleipä is made of multiple layers, which are easier to eat and share. The cake is about 6.5cm (2.5 inches) tall and has diameter of 10cm (3.9 inches). To protect the very delicate structure, we sell the cakes in individual boxes.
Finnish donut — munkki
A Finnish munkki, like many other traditional buns, contains a hint of cardamom. These donuts are coated with a touch of fine sugar and filled with delicious jam!
Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877) was the national poet of Finland and the author of the lyrics for the Finnish National Anthem. Every year around his birthday on February 5th, Finnish people celebrate him with a very popular seasonal pastry -- the Runeberg torte.
Runeberg tortes are traditionally cylinder shaped and taller than muffins. They have a rich flavor with hints of almonds, cardamom, cream, or even cinnamon, and each torte has a signature raspberry jam topping with a sugar ring.
Our Runeberg torte is roughly 6cm tall (2.4 inches) and weighs about 100g (3.5oz), and it’s available until the end of February.
Polish Easter Babka
Polish Easter Babka is a traditional easter yeast cake. Our Polish Babka has raisins and can be iced, or simply sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is not only a great dessert, but also an impressive decoration on your table.
To fulfill the needs of customers who need to fit a babka into their blessing basket, and for all those who enjoy cute little things, we also offer a smaller version.
A yeast cake with raisins and crumble is another Polish specialty. Although it is eaten all year around, it’s very popular during Easter time due to the large amount of eggs used to prepare it. Our recipe is generous with eggs and butter, so you can enjoy an old-fashioned, buttery cake topped with sweet crumble, just like your granny used to make!
Our butter cookies are similar to shortbread. They don’t have icing to cut down the amount of sugar. Each cookie is decorated by hand with text and/or pattern. They are perfect as a snack with coffee or tea. The cookies are packed in a nicely decorated box, so they make a great spring gift for friends and family.
