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.

If you cant be bothered baking, we're baking daily at the cafe until Easter, so pop by and get your bun-fix.
