Korvapuusti & Cupcakes

Remember when I told you about the Finnish speciality I tried at an international dinner party? The korvapuusti, a kind of cinnamon / cardamom bun were my favourite that night and I vowed to make them myself one day.

Well, I did. And completely forgot to take any pictures… We were all too occupied eating them… 😉

I can just recommend again this recipe: Finnish speciality – korvaapuusti by On the way. I followed the instructions and it worked beautifully! So tasty – especially warm out of the oven!

I also tried another recipe over the weekend: Apple Banana Cupcakes from Barbara on Allrecipes. I altered the recipe a bit after reading the comments on Allrecipes. I substituted the shortening with butter and the buttermilk with vanilla yogurt. I also added finely chopped walnuts for a bit of a crunch. And I didn’t shred the apples but finely chopped them.

The cupcakes were delicious! Very tasty and moist. And I think the walnuts added that extra bit of yumminess 😉
