semlaToday, millions of this lovely typical Swedish pastry will be sold in Sweden. This sweet things name is semla – and in Sweden we eat semlor on Fettisdagen (Shrove Tuesday // Mardi Gras). And as you all know, when it comes to traditions where pastries are involved…well..then I always make sure to keep that tradition alive in my home.

So what is a semla? It’s a wheat flour bun seasoned with cardamom, filled with almond paste, whipped cream and topped with powdered sugar as you can see on my photo above.

This weekend I made mini-semlor filled with lot’s of  ♥, almond paste and whipped cream. I made the almond paste from scratch (which turned out to be much easier than I had thought + much tastier). Will post the recepie soon!
