Pancake Day or Fettisdagen?

Today you can either celebrate 'Pancake Day' in the UK, or 'Fettisdagen' (Fat Tuesday) in Sweden. I might be biased because I'm Swedish but I will definitely diss the pancakes for semla! I like pancakes but semlor is so much better! And home made semla is the best. Here is my best recipe.

If you're still not convinced to go for semla, here's some inspiration for all of you pancake lovers. From Underbara Clara's blog.

Happy Fettisdag/Pancake Day!

This is the first time I've ever heard of pancake day - I like it and think it should be implemented in every country! :)

This is also the first time I've ever heard of Semla, it looks delicious!

Never hear of Semla! Maybe that's a good little baking project for me to do tonight :) Thanks!

Looks delicious indeed! ^-^

Yum! These both look so good. Pancakes are my favorite thing to make on the weekends. I will have to try your
semla recipe. I have never heard of that before, but it looks delish!

We've decided to do semlor today and pancakes tomorrow. Having to rule out one of the two very good traditions seems unfair. So I say do both! :)

i have never had a fettisdagen but i am a huge fan of pancakes and that picture is seriously calling my name! but the fettisdagen is also saying, "cristie, come eat me!" is it filled with a custard? or something similar? it looks heavenly! happy fat tuesday!
