PostHeaderIcon Happy Fat Tuesday – Celebrate with a Semla

There are many benefits to living in Sweden, and one of them is “Fettisdagen”: Fat Tuesday, a day to fatten up before Lent begins. Traditionally it is celebrated with a semla, a sweet bun carved and filled with almond paste, whipped cream and topped with powdered sugar.

This is my third Fettisdagen in Sweden, and I decided to take on the challenge and bake it myself. There is a catch to baking these yourself though, and whether it’s a pro or con depends on how you look at it: I can’t bake just 2! I did find a recipe that makes 10 (and also found a recipe that made 40!). Once the dough had risen I decided to make 9 rolls, with one being a double (slightly bigger, hehehe).
