Today is Shrove Tuesday or Fettisdagen (fat Tuesday) which means it's time to eat pancakes in Britain or semlor in Sweden. I opted for the latter as I love these sweet buns filled with marzipan/almond paste and cream. And I'm in Sweden.
This year I even made my own buns and they were delicious. Not the chocolate ones I posted about last year, just plain cardamon buns. There are recipes in English but I used this one and the buns were soft and lovely. Next year I think I will make the smaller buns as I tend to feel quite sick after one big one but still want to have a second a few hours later.
Also, the title says "Now it is time for semlor!". I have seen signs saying that since the start of January. Now it actually is time for semlor. Hooray!
