Blueberry and rye are the heart of the blueberry cock.

    Blueberry cockles are eaten with sour cream this time. Roni Lehti

    A tight hat might say that the title is wrong, but chef nevertheless Risto Mikkola calls these pastries blueberry chicken. But as open flowers.

    Mikkola’s chicken doesn’t have a lid, but it does have a wonderful rye dough. Just the kind that should be in flowers. Mustikkakukko, i.e. as a rag, is a traditional dish eaten in Savo. In Savo, it is eaten with whipped cream at the coffee table.

    Could there be an easier pastry than a blueberry rooster? Blueberries, sugar and potato flour are mixed at the bottom of the pan. A dough mixed with rye flour, water, sugar and baking powder is patted on top as a cover. The dish is topped with whipped cream, custard or ice cream.

    Blueberry cock is like our own tarte tatin, where apples are caramelized in a pan and a crust of butter dough is pressed on top.

    Mikkola sometimes recommends partially replacing wheat flour with rye flour. Rye flour gives the dough color and a different taste.

    – Rye doesn’t have the same strength as wheat flour, so you shouldn’t bake a bun with only rye flour. However, it goes well with shortbread dough, Mikkola reminds.
