We live in our kitchens. Primarily because it's a full-time job to feed our growing children, but also because we both love to cook and bake. Since we are friends and neighbors its normal for treats and recipes to get exchanged across our lawns--usually by little hands tasked with the errand. We bake and test so many recipes we thought it would be fun to share some of our Finnish favorites.
Porkkana-ananaskakku, carrot pineapple cake, is a popular contemporary recipe in Finland. We've been picking lots of carrots from the garden now, and thought it'd be fun bake this cake. The carrots and pineapple make it incredibly moist, and add natural sweetness. It's delicious for breakfast, or in the afternoon with coffee or tea. Hyvää ruokahalua!
