Ise tehtud. Hästi tehtud.
Now, this is not Finnish, but Estonian. Not quite the same, if you're Finnish or Estonian; other might not see the differences as easily :-D Kama or talkkuna (as it's in Finnish) is flour made of roasted oats, rye, barley and peas - the proportions may differ, but one can buy this flour in ordinary food stores in Finland and Estonia. In this recipe blackcurrant jam is used, but lingonberry jam (or cranberry jam) can also be used.
Estonian recipes: Alexander cake (Aleksandrikook)
Aleksandrikook aka Alexander cake. Its history goes back to 1814 or 1818, depending on your sources, when Alexander I of Russia, the reigning czar, visited Helsinki, and was served this concoction on his birthday. Two layers of shorcrust pastry, sandwiched with thick raspberry (or other) jam, and topped with simple icing.
