Semlor

Good evening;=)

Tonight it´s the first competition in a series of 4 to decide who´s going to compete for Sweden in the big Eurovision song contest in may. This year we are hosting the big thing since Swedish Loreen won the whole thing last year.

So, our evening are gonna be in front of this TV show and then we need some goodies and I decided to do the traditional thing called "semla" or "fettisbulle", which are eaten in February. The tradition is long and even if it varies exactly how we do the bun, the same ingredients are always there. 

Here´s how I made my semlor tonight:

The ingredients to make these are sweet wheat buns, whipped cream sweetened with sugar, almond paste and almond chippings:

After I have whipped the cream and added sugar, I break down pieces from the almond paste and the almond chippings in to the cream. 


Then I divide the wheat buns into halfs and put the cream/almond paste on the lower lid.


Then I add more of the whipped cream (the one without the almond in it)


Then put the lid on top and sprinkle powdered sugar on top and voilá- ready to serve;=)

Sarah Estevez Lois said...

Infernal Hunter said...

Mmmmm! Looks really tasty! I think, I will try it someday...

Anette Olzon said...

Mathews; Oh my God! You just made me stop breathing with these terrible news!!! I really got worried about you now and my evening got so dark. I really really hope the treatment will help you! I don´t know what to say but you know, if you need support, do not hesitate to write to me here, ok? I send ALL my love and strength to you, Mathews, please know I am here! Hugs!!

Anette Olzon said...

Mynta;: Hehe, yeah, it´s fun that we can see the same show, despite being in different countries;=) but I actually liked Yohio a lot so I am happy to see he got to the finals;=) Sleep well you too, angel and hyvä yötä!

Gitte; Hi! Oh, what does this Krapfen consist of?

Beatrix: Did the right artist win in Hungary then, you think? In this first competition I think the artist called Yphio was really good but the other who came to the finals were boring. Well, good taste is different, right?=)

Tanya; hi! I liked one of the 2 finalists that went through today, a boy called Yohio who is BIG in Japan;=) The other one - no...;=)
Me, Nemo and Seth has been at home today, i`ve been tired. But we took our car to the big supermarket and got some food and that was when I put the photo of Nemo in the stairs in Instagram;=)

Andi; Oh, what to say? People just don´t know everything and then it turn out wrong;=)

Alina; You´re welcome;=) Have a nice evening u too!

Océane said...

Ohh Anette I never thought I could say that to you one day but tonight : I hate youuuuu!!! Ahah
I have an empty stomach since monday noon and Im just dreaming about ANY food! And now YOU put those photos! Aaaaaaaah it looks just so delicious and now I discover theres almonds in it. And I just LOVE everything with almonds! So please eat one for me :)

Im still at the hospital, I was suppose to go home today but no food or any liquid can go through my stomach as i have a big hematoma around my stomach so I have to wait a bit more! But after reading mathew's comment I have no right to complain! :( that make me really sad and I truly hope that Mathew, you'll be fine soon again!! Bug hugs to you!

My dear, have a great evening! Ill spend mine in front of The Voice! I never watch that tv program but if you watch it 5 min its over and you wannt to see it till the end ! :)

Love and many hugs

Same here with the contest, but I'm not really interested. You know, in Eurovision it's neither the song nor the performance that matters, but the certain country's economic and political status and its relationship with other countries. If you get what I mean.
So I guess my little Hungary will always be amongst the last ones even if we send our best and most talented singers. So I don't care anymore. =)
Anyway, last year I was so happy for Sweden and Loreen. =)

Have a good night,
Dalma♥

Evening Anette,

That look so yummie. So i have bite in the comuter-mouse.
But unfortunately it does not taste as delicious as this Semlor.

Today I look rather Navy CIS. Soon comes the series "Homeland" on television. Unfortunately for me, this series annoys now. What do you findes them for so great?

Enjoy the evening.

Hi Anette,
here is the receipt of "Krapfen":

ingredients:
60 grams of butter
4 eggs (the yolks of 2 only)
1 cube of yeast
250 grams of jam (or chocolate, vanilla cream, etc)
500 grams of flour
250 milliliters of milk
1 pinch of salt
50 grams of powdered sugar
 
preparation:
In 100 ml of warm milk Crumble the yeast and stir.
Then knead the flour with 150 g of whole milk to a preferment. Sprinkle with flour, cover and let it rest in a warm place about 25 minutes.
The eggs, yolks and sugar mix.
The whole add to the dough. The remaining milk, the remaining flour, the butter and the pinch of salt knead to a smooth dough. Cover and let rest for another 25 minutes.
Form the dough 20 - 25 balls. This press somewhat flat and then cover and let rest for another 45 minutes until the balls are twice as large.
The fat to 170 ° C. Heat. The fritters fry golden on both sides. With a slotted spoon, lift out the "Krapfen" and drain.
Now comes the most fun part. In a piping bag fill the jam and inject this into the side of the "Krapfen". When serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

And so they look finished:
