Around the World in 80 Plates: Finland and a Giveaway!
Still in the pancake mood? Good! Today I have another type of pancake but these are from World Vegan Feast by Bryanna Clark Grogan (which by the way I won last year during Vegan Mofo!) and they are called Pannukakku or as Bryanna called them Yeasted Oven Pancake with Apple which rolls off my tongue a little easier but is way less fun! This one takes a little bit of planning since you have to let it rise (yeasted remember) so you will have to make sure to get up a bit early to get it started. It comes together quite quick and easy though so it's not too hard. I'm not entirely sure mine rose the way it should have but it tasted yummy and had a custard-y texture. Plus how can you resist all that yummy baked apple goodness on these?! We drizzled a bit of maple syrup over the top which took it over the top. Definitely one for a special brunch or any day that ends in -day!
I've decided as well that no Mofo is complete without a giveaway. I have been lucky enough to win a few goodies from other blogs and wanted to do something nice for those of you that have been joining me this month. I was trying to pick a book that I would like to give away from the ones I have been using lately and realized I couldn't pick. I decided to let the winner pick! Just leave a comment and you will be entered and if you are picked as the winner, you will get to choose one from the following books and I will buy it and send it to you! Pretty easy right?! And since my theme is Around the World so is this giveaway! It's open to anyone in the world, just leave a comment and let me know which book you would like to win. I will pick a winner on November 1st at 10am EST. Good luck!
