Laskiaispulla starts appearing in stores around mid-January. In neighboring Sweden, this pastry is called semla, and was originally eaten before and during Lent, nowadays they are associated strongly with Shrove Tuesday.
In addition to the traditional combination of whipped cream and marzipan, there are many variations such as jam, chocolate cream, and double layered laskiaispulla. That being the case, I decided to make a Japanese-style version with anko, lets call it Laskiaispull-Anko. I hope this will become popular, so we can easily enjoy Anko in Finland.
