Yesterday was Martin Luther King day and for many people, they have the day off. I did some photography, walked around in Venice. It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny. We've had really boring weather this winter, a lot of rain, but the good side is that the California drought is almost gone.
Anyway, it's the time of year for a very special Swedish treat, semla. A cardamom bun with almond paste, whipped cream and powdered sugar on top. Yum! So, that's what I'm doing today, baking a Swedish delicacy. I will check in later with some photos from that and a recipe.
A little short info about the semla: Today, the Swedish semla consists of a cardamom-spiced wheat bun with the top cut off and is filled with almond paste and topped with whipped cream. The cut-off top serves as a lid and is dusted with powdered sugar.
