This post is a celebration for the brilliant Swedish invention, the Fat Tuesday's Bun. It's also called Easter cake because you are supposed to eat it on the Tuesday four weeks before Easter.. I usually eat them 24/7 between January and March. If you want to have a couple of semlor (Now, that's Swedish!) you need to visit Sweden or click here where you will find the recipe. But! If you visit Sweden you will be able to sample other Swedish pastries as well, like the "negro balls" for example.
You either enjoy this as a desert [sic] after, for instance, soup, or with strong coffe [sic] at teatime. Some people enjoy eating it out of a bowl with warm milk in it. This is called (hetvägg), and it's nice - the semla gets a bit soggy this way.
