Tonight it´s the first competition in a series of 4 to decide who´s going to compete for Sweden in the big Eurovision song contest in may. This year we are hosting the big thing since Swedish Loreen won the whole thing last year.
So, our evening are gonna be in front of this TV show and then we need some goodies and I decided to do the traditional thing called "semla" or "fettisbulle", which are eaten in February. The tradition is long and even if it varies exactly how we do the bun, the same ingredients are always there.
Here´s how I made my semlor tonight:
The ingredients to make these are sweet wheat buns, whipped cream sweetened with sugar, almond paste and almond chippings:
After I have whipped the cream and added sugar, I break down pieces from the almond paste and the almond chippings in to the cream.
Then I divide the wheat buns into halfs and put the cream/almond paste on the lower lid.
Then I add more of the whipped cream (the one without the almond in it)
Then put the lid on top and sprinkle powdered sugar on top and voilá- ready to serve;=)
