Recipe: Semlor - Swedish lent buns
Fancy baking some Semlor? This amazing cardamom buns stuffed with marzipan and whipped cream. We enjoy these mainly on Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) - but also in the weeks leading up to it.
Here's a nice recipe.
If you can't get hold of the 50% marzipan (you can get it at our place and also on Ocado), you can use a UK marzipan, such as Waitrose 25%. It will not be as almondy, but it works).
We've tested this recipe with both fresh yeast and dry active yeast (comes in a little tub) - if using the latter, you should add the granules to the warm milk.
