A traditional Swedish recipe. You eat semlor on ”Fettisdagen”, second Tuesday in February, during Lent. It’s best described as a cream bun with almond paste. A traditional way to eat this bun is to put the ‘semla’ in a bowl with warm milk, also known as ‘hetvägg’ translated it will be ‘hot wall’. Or you can just enjoy it with a cup of coffee.
