Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Finnish Blueberry Buns: Yes, I'm baking again.

Well I woke up this morning thinking I owuld make some more Nan-i-Afghani. But instead I saw The Finnish Cookbook by Beatrice Ojakangas that I got for Christmas several years ago. I started flipping through it and came across Blueberry Buns. Since I have massive amounts of Blueberries thanks to the bushes on my estate (doesn't that sound impressive for 5 acres?) I thought this sounded like a plan.
They came out wonderfully. Not neat or pretty per se. I don't have that whole presentation thing down very well but taste wise it is nice.
For those who care to try it---

You start with the basic yeast pastry.

1 package active yeast: 1/4 cup warm water: 1 cup milk, scalded and cooled to luke warm: 1 teaspoon salt: 1 egg, well beaten: 1/2 cup sugar: 4-41/2 cups sifted white flour: 1/2 cup soft or melted butter.

Disolve the yeast in the water. Combine the milk, salt, egg, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast, stir in 2 cups of the flour, and beat until smooth and elastic. Stir in the butter until blended, add the remaining flour, and mix until a stiff dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth. Place in a lightly geased bowl, turn to grease the top, and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour). Punch down and let rise again (about 30 min); the dough will be puffy but not doubled.

Filling: 1 cup mashed blueberries: 2 tablespoons lemon juice: 1 egg, beaten: 1/2cup sugar (or more depending on tartness of the berries)

Divide the dough into 12 equal parts, flatten, and shape each into a round about 4 inches in diameter. Turn up the edges slightly to hold the filling. Combine the blueberries, lemon juice, egg, and sugar. Use about 2 tablespoons of this mixture to fill each round of dough. Let the buns rise for 30 minutes, brsuh the edges with milk, and bake in a hot oven (400 degrees) for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve hot or cold.



NOTE: my berries are really quite sweet so I only added 1/4 cup of sugar to the filling instead of half. And I brushed the edges not with milk but with a milk and egg white mix.

When hot they go VERY well with whipped topping on them. I think I'll go eat another one.

exMI - I had high hopes for "Lost in Translation", especially after hearing about how it deals with the culture shock issue and all (spent 3 years stationed in Japan). I was more than a little disappointed though. I don't know. Maybe it was a little too cerebral for me.

No killing. No suspense. No freaky stuff involving motor oil, a viking helmet, and scuba gear...

Dude, you are so lucky. I love blueberries. They're not only some of the best tasting foods, but one of the highest in antioxidants.

By the way, those look good.
