Method

Semlor! is a community recipe submitted by nica and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Stir butter and syrup, salt and cardamom all white and fluffy.
  • Melt the yeast in finger temperature milk, add the egg. Add the flour and the fluffy buttermix and work it all together to a (folesome) and a kind of loose dough.
  • Take the dough over to a baking table with some flour under it, take out 16 bits equal sized. Form them in to round buns and put in to paper forms. If you think the dough is too loose use to spoons first dipped in cold water to prevent from sticking and use these to scoop over into 16 paper forms (middle to big sized- not for muffins tough)
  • Put the buns to rest in a warm place preferably on top of the oven or something like that, to the double size, about 45 minutes. Put your oven on 250C. With a kitchen brush, put easy whisked egg over every bun before baking in middle section of the oven for about 8 minutes.
  • Mix or grind the almonds, add the powder sugar and water and give it a good stir, (mix) to a paste.
  • Cut a lid from the top of each bun, cut out so much you make a hole for the filling to go in ( now here I use some of the filling in my (mandelmassa)mix and add some cream to it-not necessary tough just a matter of taste- you can also skip the almond mix and put any kind of jam in that you like preferably raspberry or strawberry, but then you'll need to use the bits you cut out from inside the bun.
  • Put whipped cream on top of the filling and top the whole bun with the "lid" you cut off, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
