New shop in Gothenburg

Wednesday, 25 February at 10, I am opening the doors to my new store in Gothenburg!
You find it on Södra Larmgatan 13

Welcome to my fourth Leila's General Store!

Swedish Semla

A Semla is a wheat flour bun filled with almond past and whipped cream.

An old tradition in Sweden is to eat Semla only once a year at Fettisdagen (Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday) which is an old Christian tradition, but some of us likes to enjoy Semlor even more often then once a year, so the bakeries usually bakes them throughout the winter season. 

Do you want to bake Semlor? Find Leila's traditional recipes here!
