Pulla


Pulla (also nisu or vehnänen) is one of the most wide-spread baked sweets in Finland and the base for many, many others. It's one of the things I've been asked to post and no wonder, since if traveling in Finland you're likely to meet it on every second coffee table. It's so important culturally in fact, that Finns like to describe a family doing well by saying their home smells like freshly baked pulla. It's basically just a bread roll with added sugar, but it's one of those treats so simple I felt surprised to learn that like salmiakki or dish draining closet, it's almost unknown outside Scandinavia. Then again, there are quite many other bun types around the world.

The amounts here are straight from Insanity's recipe:

- wheat flour (about 1 kg or less)
- 5 dl soy milk
- 150 g margarine
- 2 dl sugar
- 50 g yeast
- 1 tbsp cardamom
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1 tsp salt

Warm up the milk to about 42°C (feels warm to your hand but doesn't make you scream if you stick your hand into it). Dissolve the yeast in it as well as the spices and the sugar. Keep sifting in the flour and kneading the dough until it starts to let go from from your hands and the bowl it's in.

Melt the margarine and add it into the bowl as well. Keep kneading for at least another ten minutes. Cover with a towel and come back after an hour when your dough is trying to crawl out of the bowl.

Divide in about ten pieces. Roll them round between your hands and put on an oven shelf. Let them rise for another half an hour. At this point you can also butter the pullas with well sugared coffee before oven and sprinkle some sugar on them. Bake 10-15 minutes in a 200°C oven. Enjoy with coffee, tea or berry juice.

You can also add raisins into the mix to make rusinapulla; stick your finger on top of the bun, put a clump of margarine in it and sprinkle with sugar before the oven to achieve voisilmäpulla; or sprinkle almond flakes on top instead of sugar for mantelipulla.
