Compound noun: Funnel cake. (Literally, ”drip bread” or ”drop bread,” which refer to how it’s made. But most Finns would probably not translate it, they would just use the Finnish word.)
Tippaleipä is a Finnish food eaten around vappu (May 1st) made by dripping cake batter into hot oil through a pastry bag or funnel. It’s often covered with powdered sugar and served with a lemon-flavored mead called sima.
Tippaleipä comes from tippa, meaning drip or drop and leipä, meaning bread.
Cooking Finland has a recipe in English if you’d like to try and make it.
