What is SEMLOR?
First of all, it’s a semla. One semla, two semlor, and so on.
A semla is a cardamom bun made with yeast (yes, like a sweet bread roll, but nicer than you’re thinking right now). It’s served stuffed with very soft marzipan (almond Cream), a ton of whipped cream and a bit of icing sugar.
When should you eat SEMLA?
A semla is a seasonal bun, served around Shrove Tuesday (we call it Fat Tuesday, next up on February 21, 2023)) and then sort of pushing towards Easter a bit. And then they’re gone..
Scandinavians love rules and regulations for things, so Semlor have a season and can only be served during that time. In Sweden, it actually even used to be illegal to serve a semla outside of the accepted period. Here’s a genuine newspaper article from 1952 where the police were called to deal with some out-of- season semlor:
Whats the big deal?
Besides the threat of bun-jail? A semla is cream and marzipan in a bun, so it’s delicious. It’s quite heavy and makes you feel all ouuuuahhhh inside, as if you’ve just shoved two fingers up at your diet. It’s an excellent way to celebrate the end of January.
OFF COURSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL FEBRUARY 23!

HOW DO YOU EAT A SEMLA?
1. Your basic method is to lick the cream off the lid and use it to scoop more cream, then eat the bun.
2. When you feel more confident, eat the lid first, then stuff your face – and get cream on your nose and inside your left nostril.
3. If you want a traditional old-style Swedish experience, place your semla in a bowl of hot milk and eat it using a spoon. It’s a thing for some; a purist semla ritual.
4. Your fourth method is the most popular one, push bun towards your face with glee. Open mouth. Inhale.
