Baking meeting

For seventh meeting we gathered together in house of Iris again to bake so called Korvapuusti – cinnamon rolls. Recipe was in Finnish, so we had another set of words to learn. Some of those I knew from shopping for my own survival during months in Finland, but some of the words were new, and Iris also finally let me know, what does rkl and tl mean 😀

Funny part (at least for Iris) was her asking about amounts of ingredients and asking for help with various things – in finnish x.x So we had training in everyday finnish speaking 😀 We tried our best to guess whole meaning of question and then to answer back in finnish.

While girls were rolling the dough (kneaded by me – I had to do my part of job too), I was filling my white places in vocabulary book, alternately asking Iris and Yuki for those words and phrases in Finnish and Japanese.

Later, we had discussion about religions and age, when people are allowed to marry and drink alcohol. In Japan, they have rather complicated religion, connected with worship of ancestors.

Finally, cinnamon rolls were done and we enjoyed them with tea and some card games.

Korvapuusteja – Cinnamon Rolls

Tuesday evening we met at my place planning to bake some cinnamon rolls.

Recipe

Of course I wrote the recipe in Finnish, so Marius and Yuki would learn some vocabulary of baking. They learnt nicely ingredients and meanings of rkl (ruokalusikka), tl (teelusikka) and ps (pussi).

Marius mixed the dough and I and Yuki made the rest. And making it more fun (of course) I kept asking questions in Finnish as “Marius, paljonko voita tarvitaan?” (Marius, how much we need butter?) and “Yuki, voitko antaa vehnäjauhon?” (Yuki, could you pass the wheat flour?). Answers were accepted only in Finnish. 😀

Happy Bakers

While rolls were enjoying the heat, we discussed about religions and marriage age. In Slovakia and Finland people need to be 18 to get married and to be allowed drinking alcohol. In Japan women need to be 16 and men 18 to get married, and 20 to be allowed mess with alcohol. 😀

Cinnamon rolls were enjoyed with some tea and card games.
