Happy Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day/Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras/Laskiaistiistai to everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here in Britain people eat lots of pancakes, but in my country, Finland, we eat these special buns you can call semla (Finns call it laskiaispulla). We put whip cream and jam between the bun when you cut it in to half.

We also eat pea soup, this fat filled soup…doesn’t sound good? I used to dislike it but now I love it! Especially when you add mustard in it. Yes, mustard.

Usually on Shrove Tuesday we go out in the snow, take our sleds and go slide with them. Even when I was in school we were taken to slide with sleds. It was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚


These days I also make vlog. Here you can watch how I baked semlas/laskiaispullat and see how to do it yourself:
