While the Brazilians celebrate their carnival, we here up north take our sleds and head out to the snowy hills to celebrate the Fat Sunday, or Fat Tuesday, which is the adequate day for the event. Afterwords it is tradition to have some traditional pea soup with a fatty Tuesday bun. The bun is filled with all the ingredients that we in our family try to avoid: wheat & sugar in the bun and whipped cream in between. You'd think I'd skip that tradition then and go on with my normal life. Flat wrong. Today I dug up my buried inspiration and made my own "muffin" version of the bun.
Here is the recipe:
4 eggs (that you whip until almost white)
1 big carrot
1 tables spoon cardamom
1 tesaspoon vanilla powder (optional)
1 dl buckwheat flour
2-2,5 dl almond flour
Cooled coconut milk (the creamy part)
100% natural apple sauce
Whip eggs until white in separate bowl. Shred carrots and mix in the mixer together with the rest of the ingredients. until smooth, add the eggs. Add to muffin molds. Bake in 180- 200 degree for 15-20 minutes. Let cool.
Mash the banana and mix with electric mixer together with coconut cream and vanilla powder, keep cool until you use it.
When the muffins are cooled, slice the top off and grape a whole in the bottom, add the apple sauce to the whole and on top the "whipped cream", place the hat on when finished. Voila - Fatty Sunday Bun. Enjoy!
