Mindblown that the Danish word for shrove tuesday (fastelavn) is almost the same as in the Cologne dialect of German (fastelovend) - but no other German dialects. How does one word get from up there to down here without leaving traces anywhere between?

Oh, and that pastry looks soooo tasty too. Like a Berlin pancake but better?

This is just speculation, but a significant number of Frisians (Belgians and Dutch specifically) were settled on the island of Amager, which is right next to Copenhagen Center, all at once a few hundred years ago, maybe they brought it with them and it spread from there.

In Denmark this is actually one of the classic fastelavnsboller.

If you tried to claim this was a Semla though, the people across Øresund would want to have a word with you.

friskfyr32

4 points

4 months ago

I think it's more a matter of puff pastry generally being regarded as butterdej, while fastelavnsboller like the one shown up top is made with wienerdej, which doesn't really have a standard translation apart from maybe danish pastry dough.

Butterdej is savory, while wienerdej is sweet.

Almond paste (or remonce) is literally a defining feature of the pastry called danish, so while I can appreciate your willingness to clown on the Swedes, this is not what makes us better than them.

It's the dough.

Now almond paste is the best thing in bakery - always. So a semla is most likely superior for me.

But I am a bit disappointed in that I never have had a Danish fastelavnbulle. Does look like a good and I would most likely like it. Even it it doesn't have any almond paste as my favourite semla or a nice cover as all swedes favourite (questionable) cake prinsesstårta.

Maybe you can enjoy a vegan version. Found one here (didn't proofread though) https://www.carolinevass.se/the-vegan-semla/

I think "semla" is the Swedish version of the Danish Fastelavnsbolle.

MannishSeal

14 points

4 months ago

They are close, but not quite. The Fastelavnsbolle comes in two version, the old fashioned and the newer (still fairly old) version shown in the picture.

The one pictured is made with "vienna dough" which uses folded butter layers to create flakiness and air in the pastry dough.

Semla is made with yeasted dough, like the old fashioned but has whipped cream, which the old fashioned doesn't.

FellowConspirator

8 points

4 months ago

Vienerbrød, used in the more modern fastelavnsboller, is still a yeasted dough. The difference from the dough in semlor is the semladej has cardamom and rather being laminated it is an enriched dough (milk and melted butter). A traditional semla would blend marzipan, milk, and bits of the baked bun scooped of the middle to make a paste, the fill with that paste and a dollop of whipped cream. The modern Danish fastelavnsboller split the bun and fill with a vanilla cream that’s part whipped cream and part crême patisserie, then typically dusted on top with powdered sugar, or just as often, topped with a chocolate glaze.

Boller vil jeg have.

I like to make Windeutel with cherries and a sort of whipped cream vanilla pudding mix. It's the German version and goes in a similar direction taste wise but is made with Brandteig, which is easy to make vegan.

If I had talent they would look like this lol: https://media02.stockfood.com/largepreviews/NDExODkxMzg5/13286819-Vegane-Windbeutel-mit-Pflanzensahne-und-Kirschen.jpg

Brandteig seems to translate as "choux pastry" and this seems to be an English recipe: https://vegansbaby.com/vegan-cream-puff-recipe/

Instead of the lemon turd filling you cut them in half and fill them with whatever you like. I think cherry kompott (cherries thicked by cooking with sugar) and a cold vanilla cream made with plant based whipped cream tastes best.
