I had the extreme pleasure of going to a friends house this past week and witnessing a special dessert being made called fastelavensboller; basically cardamom yeast buns filled with whipping cream. She is from Norway and these mark the beginning of Lent in her country. A link to the recipe can be found here. She made hers basically the same way, although she used regular all-purpose flour for the buns and filled them with a raspberry whipping cream. They were decadent and so delicious. Not to mention pretty! She put hers into heart shaped tins for a special Valentine’s Day twist. It was such a fun project and I felt so honored to be able to share in it! I can’t wait to try making them myself! Below are a few photos that documented the process.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
