Runebergin(torttun) päivä

En ce jour de célébration du poète national Johan Ludvig Runeberg, voici de délicieux petits gâteaux aux amandes que la femme du poète lui préparait affectueusement et que les Finlandais aiment à partager à l'heure du café... Ceux qui n’auraient ni le temps ni l’envie de les préparer à la maison peuvent toutefois se rattraper en les trouvant facilement en supermarché, mais c’est tellement facile à faire et si bon que rien ne vaut ceux concoctés à la maison !

Today is a flag day celebrating the national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg (also a national day of vote!). Finns eat for this specific occasion delicious little almond cakes, that Runeberg’s wife used to prepare with love for her beloved one… It became a tradition to cook them at home and enjoy them at coffee time… For those who do not have time to prepare them in their kitchen, these cakes can be easily found in a shop at this period of the year.

Vous trouverez la recette chez Nathalie, blogueuse sur Finn Cuisine

The recipe can be found in French on Nathalie’s blog, Finn Cuisine. You will find below a shortened English version.

Recipe for 10 cakes (muffins shaped) or 6 real Runebergintorttu:

  • Mix 200 g of margarine with 160 of caster sugar (fariinisokeri). Add two eggs, mix and add two –three drops of almond extract.
  • Mix 60 g of almond powder, 140 g of wheat flour, 65 g of bread crumbs and two tea spoons of baking powder. Add then this dry mix to the first preparation and mix until getting a smooth pastry.
  • Fill in 2/3 of the moulds and put in the oven (200°C) for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • (You can optionally use one table spoon of rhum or almond liquor (amaretto) in a plate and leave each cake on the plate for some seconds so that the cake absorbs some alcohol.)
  • To decorate the cakes, you can use a ready-made icing or mix ½ table spoon of lemon juice and one table spoon of water with 2/3 dl of icing sugar. Draw a circle on the top of each cake and fill the inside of the circle with raspberry jam.

Bon appétit!


Et c'est aussi jour de fête parce que jour de vote! :-)

And this is also a special day because of the elections ! :-)
