That’s how my breakfast looked like this morning ^ ((well late breakfast I mean, 4 hours after waking)) and it was a pure BLISS! Korvapuusti – that can be translated into ‘slap on the ear’ or ‘slap in the face’ is the Finnish version of a cinnamon roll. You can find it everywhere in Finland and it’s best enjoyed warm with a glass of cold milk. Some like to dip it in their coffee but for me milk is the drink to pair it with!
The recipe that I’m about to share with you, uses less flour than a traditional recipe – which makes them lighter, even a bit fluffy in texture. While a fresh cinnamon roll is always the best, this light texture ensures that the rolls will stay soft for at least couple more days – that is if you’ll have any left!
I actually made only half of the quantity as I know myself too well… I simply can’t stop eating them! Oh, and our freezer is currently full ( always smoothie ready means tons of berries, spinach and bananas to freeze!!). If you do have space in your freezer – go ahead and make a bigger batch at once, they freeze well and taste delicious after reheating in the oven (or microwave if you are in a hurry). It’s great stuff to have in your freezer to serve for surprise guests and for those days when you just need one, or two or a few, who counts?!
