ARKET SEMLA

Recipe 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.

Ingredients ARKET Semla

8 small tebirkes buns or similar
200g almond paste/marzipan
150ml heavy cream
20g almonds, roasted and roughly chopped
1–2 tbs water
Sea salt
Powdered sugar for dusting

Method ARKET Semla

step 1 Work the almond paste in a bowl together with 1–2 tbs of water until it gets soft in texture, then add the chopped roasted almonds and a tiny pinch of sea salt.

step 2 Whisk the heavy cream until it starts to get thick but is still shiny.

step 3 Cut the top off the bun. This will be the pastry’s lid.

step 4 Assemble your semla by spreading a spoonful of almond paste on the bottom half of the bun, followed by a dollop of whipped cream.

step 5 Put the lid on and dust with powdered sugar.

It represents the notion of the archive and is used to organise and display information ranging from the names of plants to fabric weights and different types of materials used in our collections. These nine squares symbolise the separate parts that together form our world, and they are also the areas where we strive to make a difference.
