The basic bun is a very traditional treat here in Finland. The smell of it brings back memories from my childhood but in my adult years I have never been the fan of eating it. It is always pretty dry and just somehow a bit boring.
Well now I bumped into a great recipe where the bun had been modified. The new ‘twist’ was that the bun was stuffed with apple marmalade spiced up with thyme. After baking the stuffed buns in a muffin pan, the buns were coated with cinnamon and sugar. The last touch was homemade vanilla sauce on top. Note: Always make your own vanilla sauce. Very easy and so much better then what you can buy. Also do not underestimate thyme as a spice when talking about desserts. It fits like a glove!
