Norwegian Lent Buns




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!
