Baking traditional Finnish buns

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share you a traditional dessert, which we eat on Pancake day in Finland. It’s called laskiaispulla and in this video I’m trying out some new fillings to go inside the bun. The traditional fillings that we usually have are whipped cream with jam or almond paste. 
Everything went well until I baked the buns in the oven and they bruned from the bottom… Well I’m not a professional baker so it’s okay. They still tasted good when I removed the burned part!

Give this video a thumbs up if you liked it and commet down below if your country has any dessert days!

So here’s the recipe for the buns:
Buns (about 20)
5 dl of milk or water (Hand temperature)
1 yeast
1 teaspoon of salt
2 dl of sugar
1 tablespoon of cardamom
150g of butter
12-14 dl of flour
1 egg
1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk (for greasing)

Mix the milk/water (hand temperature) with the yeast. 
Add sugar, salt and cardamom.
Add 1/3 of the flour 
Add melted butter to the mixture
Add the rest of the flour
Let it rise for about 30 minutes
Heat the oven to 200 degrees (celsius) 
Roll the mixture (after rising) to round buns
Let them rise for about 10 minutes before greasing
Sprinkle sugar crystals on top of the buns
Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes

NOTE! I used coconut flakes instead of sugar crystals and I used only 1 egg for greasing.
To add the filling you must cut the buns in half after baking!

Now to the fillings! 
I always used this ”whipped cream” as a base in all of my fillings:
Mix Coconut cream and 1 teaspoon together with an electric mixer.

”Traditional” bun with a twist:
1. Make the whipped cream
2. Cut the bun in half
3. Put about one teaspoon of jam (I used rasberry jam) in the middle
4. Add the "whipped cream" 
5. Put the lid on
Blueberry smoothie:
1. Put the blueberries, "whipped cream", milk and yogurt to a blender and mix them 
2. Add into the bun
Tip! the more yogurt you add, the thicker smoothie will be

Banana-coconut filling:
1. Add in mashed banana(1 banana), honey (1tablespoon) and the coconut flakes (1 tablespoon) to the whipped cream
2. Mix well
3. Put into the bun
