Fat tuesday

Well yesterday was shrove Tuesday and everyone was enjoying their pancakes!
In Sweden it's called fat Tuesday and, instead of pancakes, we traditionally eat something called Semla and I had decided to bake some this year.
Don't get me wrong, I love pancakes as much as the next person! Semlor are just such a Swedish thing that you only really eat once every year and, having lived in London 5 years, I really miss them...
Of course I didn't get round to baking them... I came down with a cold and yesterday the bt-man was here for 4 hrs sorting out the Internet etc...
So I decided to make them today! OK, so fat Tuesday has come and gone but I don't care. I want my semla!!!!
The first batch has just come out of the oven and as soon as they've cooled down I'm going to make my almond paste and have one!

Will post piccies later!
