Miss My's Piimäkakku a.k.a Buttermilk Cake Recipe

Last Saturday Miss Mo and I got together with a few other girls for a really fun girls' evening. Everyone brought something to eat. I brought meatballs and piimäkakku which is a cake made with piimä (buttermilk). Many Finnish people have had piimäkakku at least once in their lives and some friends have said piimäkakku reminds them of their youths. Because I had some piimä left I made two more cakes and brought pieces to the play park and passed them around. The cake is very easy to make and doesn't involve difficult processes. Some people have asked for the recipe. I make the cake according to the recipe given to me by Isabella's grandmother.


4,5 dl flour
3 dl sugar
1,5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 dl melted margarine
3 dl buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Melt the margarine in a bowl above a pan with hot water. Mix the dry ingredients. Add the melted margarine to the dry ingredient. Stir with a wooden spoon and 'chop' the lumps into smaller pieces. Add the buttermilk. Stir well. Grease a cake tin and pour the mixture into the cake tin. Bake it in the oven for circa 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. 

That's it! It's simple and delicious.
