Semlor - it's time.
A semla (semlebullar) is a cardamom yeast bun filled with marzipan and whipped cream and dusted with icing sugar. It's divine. Every year at around this time, Swedes across the world get home sick and go in search of these cakes.
The tradition is to eat them in "fat Tuesday" in February - the day before the faste. Now a days the Swedes eat them from New Year and all they way to end of February!
We bake some nice Semlor here at Scandi Kitchen in London and from Saturday, you can come get yours, although until February we're only doing a limited amount (so best to order if you want to guarentee availability).
