Semla is a classic Nordic pastry widely enjoyed as a seasonal treat with coffee or tea. Traditionally, semla is served as a wheat bun with almond paste and whipped cream.
At ARKET cafés, we use a mini version of a Danish tebirkes bun instead. It’s soft and flaky on the inside and crispy outside with a poppyseed topping, adding lightness and texture to our semlas. Try this recipe with your favourite type of bun, or why not a freshly baked croissant.
