Lenten buns aka semlor aka vastlakuklid 2013

Vastlakuklid 2013 / Lenten buns 2013

It’s Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday today, which means pancake feasts in many places across the world. In Estonia and other Nordic countries, however, this means eating lenten buns (semla, vastlakukkel) instead. I baked a batch of these wonderful buns, filling them with whipped sweet cream this year. No marzipan, no jam.

You’ll find all my Lenten recipes here., including recipes for barley and bacon porridge and split pea soup with smoked pork.
