Like an ABB empolyee from US said when he visited us. "Sweden is OK, but those cream burgers. Terrible......."

Wow. We look forward to pancakes with sugar and lemon juice, but those Swedish buns look very tempting!

for those who would like try to do it at home:
February 12, 2013 at 08:38 AM
I want one!

Mmm, SEMLOR :). I've asked the husband person to bring a couple home after work so we can do Mardi Gras right. We've actually managed to resist getting them early, even though they've been in the stores since Christmas! :/

We do Fat Thursday in Poland (last week) and we eat Pączki or as they say in German Puppenkrapfen, which are kind of like donuts, but I dare to say better. They look like this

Mmm, those ARE delicious!

We eat those too in Finland but I eat mine with jam not with almond paste
February 12, 2013 at 12:24 PM
They look amazingly delicious!

A friend introduced me to them when I was visiting Sweden. I had one every day after that - they are perfect with coffee after coming in out of the snowy street and icicle bedecked buildings. I haven't found any bakery in the US that makes them :-(

That looks amazing! Any sweet with almond paste is a go for me! I'd have Fat Tuesday, Fat Wednesday, Fat Thursday, etc. if I ate my fill of such pastries!

I am looking forward to some paczki today myself, that is if I can get away from the desk long enough to get one! We've had them in stores for the past couple weeks, and seeing them every time I go there makes it so much harder to resist them!

In Chicago it's PACZKI DAY!!
I already had a cherry filled one covered in powdered sugar. Yummmm.

I had one today!
February 12, 2013 at 06:06 PM
Indeed. Almond doesn't belong to laskiaispulla. It must be strawberry jam and lots of whipped cream.
Uh oh, had too many already last weekend...
February 12, 2013 at 06:31 PM
In Austria we call them "Krapfen" and they are filled with apricot jam. hmmm..

I went to a cafe called Swedish Tarts here in Adelaide and my daughter had one of these buns - the almond paste was coloured green. My Swedish friend says this is not authentic - but it tasted good!
February 12, 2013 at 08:39 PM
Looks so good! I am making sweet crepes for dinner tonight.

So delicious! Normally I bake these for fettisdagen, but
this year my entire family is sick and thinks everything
tastes terrible :(
February 13, 2013 at 12:34 AM
That looks so good.I don't suppose you would like to mail a few to Canada? :P

But the almond paste is the best of the semla! In southern part of Sweden where I grew up we ate them in a bowl with hot milk and cinnamon. Also very yummy!

Also a Swedish king in early 18th century died after having one of theese (among with 100 other dishes of non healthy food). So they are certainly to die for! :)

Mmm...I made up a recipe for almond cardamom muffins with marzipan this year to get my semlor fix. They turned out rather well, I think! :)
February 14, 2013 at 01:03 PM
Care to share your recipe? I think they sound delicious!
February 14, 2013 at 08:32 PM
