Happy Shrove Sunday. [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 and I have made Finnish laskiaispulla (shrove buns). Traditional version calls for almond paste with the whipped cream but as I'm not fond of that, we went with strawberry jam which is an entirely acceptable variation. Om nom.

those look wonderfully well-baked but I have to agree here, i vastly prefer marzipan to strawberry. :)

I like almonds but am not keen on marzipan, so jam for me!

Don't have to be strawberry jam, raspberry jam also popular :D

Ooo, very yummy-looking laskiaispulla! I kinda prefer the jam ones myself. :)

For the past ~6 weeks we've had Krapfen here (periaatteessa hillomunkki ja perinteinen täyte tässä osassa maata on ruusunmarjahillo). I'm still wondering if it's a thing that will go away after Shrove Tuesday so we've been eating them enough to tide us over the rest of the year if that is the case. :D

Was talking to mum who reminded me of this deliciousness so then I had to make some!

Haha, that is clearly a very wise strategy. Just in case they disappear!

Om nom. I prefer jam over almond paste as well!

Almonds in whipped cream I can deal with but marzipan is blah!

They look delicious. We'll be making crêpes with stewed apple and crème fraîche tomorrow.

I'm still proud of that pun. :D The best ones just pop up in the moment! I'll have to remember it for next year so I can make everyone around me groan.
