Well despite the fact that half the family has been sick today, we still needed to respond to the fact that it is the Swedish Semla Day. This day, all swedes consume at least 1 bun of the kind you see below. The bun, that is a simple wheat bun, where the top is cut of, the bun stuffed with almond cream and whipped cream. Then the top goes back on and icing sugar is spread on it.
We crazy Swedes consume more than 40 million (average 5/ pax) during this time.
One of our kings actually died after eating 14 as a dessert. (King Adolf Frederick , 1771)
So hats of for the bun!
