I served this dessert 4 times and it was a hit each time.I only used 2 tablespoons of sugar, served it over chunks of angel food cake and topped it off with Mixed Berry Gelato.

I am half Finnish and have always taken an interest in the Finnish culture and food. I too would be delighted if you could share more Finnish recipes.

This person did not post this recipe today. It is put on the board by the administration and so they will not get your message. I'm sorry. My son and his family live in Helsinki. He cooks American more than Finnish. They do love the fish there.

My husband is Finnish and I always want to try to give him a taste of what his heritage is. Do you have any other recipes to share? I would love to try some! Thank you.
