Classic Finnish potato flat bread



A classic Finnish bread that comes originally from south Karelia and was one of the main basic items in the local kitchen.
Simple & cheap to make which makes it magical and leaves you with a delicate taste.
There are different recipes with different amounts of ingredients according to your own taste.
It can be a total flat bread and it can be like a soft Pita bread version.
Pick up carefully the kind of potatoes you use to make the perfect puree.
If you want them rather flat, make small holes with a fork.
It goes best with butter or butter& egg mix on top.
A real delicate piece from the classic Finnish baking.

  • 4 dl barley flour
  • 1-2 dl white flour
