Estonian Kama roll with Cowberries. Kama ja pohlarull

he secret of Estonia is Kama. Kama is Estonian traditional finely milled flour mixture.

Historically kama was a non-perishable, easy-to-carry food that could be quickly fashioned into a stomach-filling snack by rolling it into butter or lard; it didn’t require baking, as it was already roasted. Today Kama is a perfect summer dish. Just add some fresh or fermented milk and sugar or salt, mix, and ready! How to do kama, find out it here.
And what is interesting. In Estonian Kama means in slang “stuff, things” and the same time Kama means ” drugs”…:)

This cake is So Estonian:) Bitter-sweet taste of Kama is complemented with sweet and sour cowberries.
I have been studying many dictionaries to find out which is the right translation: cowberries or lingonberry. And still, I do not know the right answer.
