Have you heard of the Swedish semlor, a cardamom bun filled with almond paste and whip cream? The semlor (plural) is so popular so it even exists a special day for this pastry, the Tuesday between Shrove Monday and Ash Wednesday. This is a modified version of the original semla made in to a big soft cake that still taste like a real semla.
