Difficulty - super simple (you just have to cut some apples)
Omenakaurapaistos is an excellent example of a Finnish compound word.
Omena + kaura + paistos = apple oat cobbler (paistos is just a name for this type of dish, so cobbler is a loose translation)
There is no real "right" amount of each ingredient for this recipe, just make it taste good. However, I will give some suggestions based on what we did
Omenat (apples) Maybe ~1 apple per serving, or less if they are big (we used 6 small ones for 6 people)
Voi (butter) or margariini (margarine) if you want it vegan
Kaura (oats - we used what looked like rolled oats)
Sokkeri (sugar, again!)
It should be enough butter to coat the oats when melted. We used something like 1 cup butter, 2 cups oats and 0.5 cup sugar (it was in deciliters, so I am confused!) for 6 people.
- Preheat oven to 200 C (~400F)
- Cut apples into small chunks (no need to peel them, but probably you should wash them first)
- Grease baking dish and place apple chunks in
- Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon evenly on top of apples
- Crust top
- Melt butter
- Put in sugar and stir
- Add in oats and stir until they are all coated with butter.
- Adjust the ingredient ratio to taste and to make sure the oats are coated in butter but not dripping wet
- Spread the butter/oats/sugar crust on top of the apples in the pan. If you need more crust, make some more - it is super simple!
- Bake for 20-30 minutes until the top is browned
We ate it with some vanilla ice cream, which was awesome as you might imagine.
