So, March 4. Fat Tuesday
Shrove Tuesday, if you are a Brit. But pancakes you eat year around, and the hot wedge buns are only for Lent. It's light, airy and a little bit sweet roll, and for me it has to have cardamon to taste right. The name Semla comes from the German word Semmel, for bun, derived from the Latin word for fine flour, similia. In Sweden we fill it with almond paste and whipped cream, and a dusting of icing sugar.
