Semlor, also called fastlagsbulle, laskiaispulla or fastelavnsbolle, are traditional sweet buns made in various forms in Denmark, Iceland, Finland, and Norway, among other countries. These lovely cardamom-scented buns are traditionally served in Sweden before the beginning of Lent, although you can make them year-round.
They are filled with a rich cardamom custard and fluffy whipped cream, then dusted with icing sugar. One great thing about them is that they are not overly sweet, and the dough is lovely and pillowy soft, especially on the day they are made.
