We're no Vikings, but we do know that there's nothing like a batch of Swedish Glögg to warm you up on those dark, cold Winter evenings. Glögg is the Scandinavian version of mulled wine, with aromas of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and orange. With the addition of Aquavit and rum, this is much more than your ordinary glass of red wine. In Germany and the Netherlands, it is called Glühwein.
The title is a Swedish lesson in number. You can eat "one semla" or "many semlor". Once you try these, you'll probably understand why you seldom see the word in its singular form.
I won't go into great detail describing the history of semlor in Sweden. You can read all about that in English (or Swedish if you prefer) on Wikipedia. I've tried many a semlor recipe over time ... some good, and some not. I'll save you the time and research, and include the recipe that works best for me.
