Here’s a great recipe for fettisdagen (the Swedish Mardi Gras). It has all the flavours of semla buns, but none of the time-consuming process of proving and kneading. However, if you’re game for all that, then by all means this cocktail would be amazing paired with the decadent buns! You can omit the custard if you want, but it gives another dimension to the cocktail and hey, it is for Fat Tuesday, after all!
To make, you’ll need:
- 1 Whole carton of Oatly milk/ unsweetened unroasted almond milk
- 2 Scoops of Swedish Glace (Tofu Line) vanilla Ice cream
- 3 Shots of Amaretto
- 2 Shots of vanilla vodka (I used ABSOLUT, naturally)
- 1⁄2 tsp Ground cardamom
- 2tbs Oatly custard
- Soy whip
- Cake crumbs
To make, put all the ingredients in a blender and whizz up until they make a sweet, aromatic cardamom laced cocktail. Get your glasses, in my case a vintage milk bottle, and fill with the mix. Top with some soy whipped cream, but be wary that it doesn’t sink, as it doesn’t behave exactly the way dairy cream does, it’s also a bit heavier.
Garnish with cake crumbs, vegan in my case, left over from a delicious Naturally Kind Food slice and you’re done!
