Virtual Nordic Table Demo: Swedish Semlor with Erin Swenson-Klatt

Saturday, February 13, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Tune in to watch Erin bake a wintery Swedish treat: the semla, or Fat Tuesday bun. Semlor are cardamom-infused, almond paste-filled, and whipped cream-topped treats originally indulged only on Fat Tuesday, before the Lenten fast until Easter. These days, Swedes eat semlor in many forms, from New Years until Easter.

In this one-hour class, Erin will share a recipe that even novice bakers can tackle at home, along with lots of baking tips and some history and cultural context for these classic baked goods. After watching this one-hour demo, students will be prepared to tackle semlor on their own at home, any time!
