| 2014-02-03 | 0 Comments

Time is closing in on the real Semla eating date in Stockholm. To be on the safe side you should only eat semlas sometime between the 3rd of February and 9th of Mars. Prepare by skipping breakfast and make plenty of room for these buns that pack enough cream to get you through the rest of the week.

The most famous Swede who really loves semlas is Tam Sventon (Swedish: Ture Sventon) He’s a private detective and is characterized by loving semlas. However, not being able to pronounce “s” in many situations, he calls them temlas.
