Sweetened potato casserole
Place of originFinland
Region or statePäijät-Häme
Main ingredientsPotatoes, wheat flour

Sweetened potato casserole (Finnish imelletty perunalaatikko) is a traditional Finnish dish from Päijät-Häme.[1] It is prepared by letting puréed potatoes, mixed with wheat flour, stand at a temperature of around 50°C (122°F). The amylase in the flour will start to break down the potato's starches to shorter carbohydrate chains, that is sugars. The temperature cannot exceed 75°C (167°F); otherwise, the amylase molecules will break down.[2] Through this process, the dish gets its distinct sweet flavour; nowadays, however, dark syrup (Finnish: tumma siirappi) can be added to give it sweetness. Dark syrup is made from sugarcane and it's the most common type of syrup in Finland. It has a similar taste to molasses, but is sweeter.
