You’ll probably be hearing more about this gooey pastry called semla in the next few weeks on various blogs here. Usually sold a few weeks leading up to Lent and mostly consumed on Fat Tuesday, semlor (plural) are designed to fatten you before fasting for 40 days. That didn’t stop my husband and I from digging into a couple semlor way before the season.
On days when we’ve got absolutely nothing to do, my husband and I bust out the vetemjöl (flour) and a pound of butter, and bake up batches and batches of kanelbullar (cinammon buns) which we later freeze for countless fika opportunities (…well, until they run out a few days later).
To try your hands at baking Swedish kanelbullar, you can grab a recipe here on Sweden.se and use these photos as a visual guide.
