Tippaleipä (Finland)

"Tippaleipä are served for "Vapu", the Finnish celebration on the First of May. The Finnish drink, eat and dance, ;probably because they are happy that the long winter is over. Kind of reminds me of funnel cake! I have not made this, but posted for ZWT6. I have no idea how many 'nests' this makes."

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My Family and I moved to South Africa at the beginning of 2007 to be missionaries. My Husband is the Pastor of a church in Eden Park, a township in the Jo'burg area. We are having a great time. My kids love it (3 of them, 1 born here). We have got to do many exciting things( pet lion cubs, feed giraffes, eat Zebra(gross!)and other meats(Warthog was surprisingly the best, go figure) and swim on a beach with penguins, to name a few). I have always loved to bake but just got into cooking since moving over here. There were a lot of things I couldn't find over here(and still can't) that we were wanting so I started searching for good recipes for everything from sausage, salad dressing and root beer,to enchilada sauce, Macayo's baja sauce(posted), and Applebees hot wings! A fellow missionary turned me on to this site and My husband got me a membership for this last birthday. I am loving it!
