A semla or fastlagsbulle, laskiaispulla, vastlakukkel or fastelavnsbolle is a traditional sweet roll made in various forms for the annual carnival, Fastelavn in Scandinavia.
Fastelavn will be celebrated Sunday 2nd March 2014. Celebrate with us – This is our very best (and easy) recipe!
If you can’t bother baking, get the utterly yummy ones from Bageriet London. They have a layer with marzipan too! Available at the Scandinavian food shop, Totally Swedish, in Marylebone.
And speaking of getting fat. As long as you can resist having these creamy buns every day, I don’t think there’s any reason to worry about being unhealthy!
