Fastlagsbullar




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

  1. Idag är det "fettisdagen", sista dagen innan påskfastan enligt den kyrkliga traditionen. Och idag har vi ätit fastlagsbullar till eftermiddagsfikat. Hembakade. Gott, gott!
