Semlor or Fastlagsbulle, this last word is more appropriate for the South of Sweden. I will adopt the last one as you may know, I have Malmö i mitt hjärta and it was Jakob who made them.

Fastlagsbulle is a bun flavoured with cardamon and filled with almond paste and whipped cream. Does it sound good for you? I can assure you that it tastes better. Fastlagsbullar are originally eaten on Shrove Tuesday but nowadays you can find and eat them the whole February. I have heard that king Adolf Frederick Of Sweden died after having eaten many, many, many fastlagsbullar.

I suggest you have a look in this great blog, where you can find a brilliant video recipe.

One last thing. I have not be able to control myself and I have found an old picture...Malmö and I

Winter cabbage salad

    Loads of savoy cabbage from my vegetable box and I think I have found a very nice way to prepare it in salad, with orange and hazelnuts. On the side, leek fritters, from Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi.


4 cups savoy cabbage, sliced thin
2 oranges, peel removed and cut into wedges
1/2 cup toasted chopped hazelnuts


1/2 cup olive oil
2 TBS honey
1 TBS dijon mustard
1 TBS soy sauce
zest from 1 orange
