Semla and other swedish pastry

Swedes love sweet. On the weekends it is a treat to eat lösgodis, a variety of ultrasweet candies picked from an assortment of boxes in the supermarkets and DVD hire stores.

Also sweet is the swedish pastry often with lots of whipped cream and almondmarzipan like the prinsesstårta. The queen of swedisch pastry is the Semla, plural Semlor, a backed bun with the top sliced off and filled with almondmarzipan and whipped cream. Looking spectacular Semla was traditionally eaten in a deep plate of warm milk as the bottom is somewhat dry.


A clever baker invented a new form: Semla as a wrap! Enjoy, thanks to: Konditori Flanaden
