SEMLA


SEMLA, originally uploaded by ampster.

In Sweden they seem to have a special cake for practically every day of the year, and most of them are a bit "meh". Like, yeah, cheers for another variation of a plain breaded bun, Sweden! But this... wow. It's called a 'semla' and it's a "cardamom-spiced wheat bun which has its top cut off and insides scooped out and is then filled with a mix of the scooped-out bread crumbs, milk and almond paste, topped with whipped cream. The cut-off top is then put back as a lid and dusted with icing sugar." (Wikipedia). It's AMAZING! It's a pre-Lent feast apparently, and I can't wait for my next one. Well done Sweden! You got a cake right!
