It's munkki time of the year!


There is some other legit reason for the celebrations on the first of May but I much prefer to think it as Munkki celebrations. (@galenkp would agree.)

Delicious sugary balls are my favourite, I can eat about 6 on one sitting, depending on the size obviously.

Do you prefer the donuts or the balls?

Sort:  

My preference would be the balls, they both look very tasty

Balls are just more fun to eat, even when they taste the same.

This is we called #Laddu he’s my favorite one and I am always happy to take it is made of seeds of nuts 🥜 and coconut milk powder

I just googles laddu and no these are not the same, nothing similar other than the round shape 😅 what I have here is most closely related to donuts.

Munkki mayhem!

Voilà une autre partie de la Finlande qui est à découvrir... Nature, cuisine... Quel beau pays!
En France, pour le 1er mai, la tradition veut que l'on offre des fleurs de muguet qui sont censées apportées du bonheur à celui qui les reçoit.

That is a lovely tradition, but aren’t they poisonous? 🤣 I’d gladly rub them on a few people though.

We don't eat it. Sure

Growing up in a small town, our local bakery used to make a version of these that they injected with a little bit of Raspberry jam. (I helped a friend prep the dough a few times) Looking at the recipe here, https://www.scandikitchen.co.uk/munkki/ , this is exactly what I remember the ingredients were.

I typically prefer cake doughnuts over yeast doughnuts ... but Raspberry filled Munkki beat them all!!!!

We make the jam filled ones too :) All of them are good but yeah I think I prefer a donut too, but don’t tell anyone!

My lips are sealed.
