Celebrating Lucia With A Lucia Lenten Bun
December 13, 2020 10:12 AM

Today we celebrate Lucia here in Sweden. Which means listening to Lucia and her entourage singing Christmas carols and eating Lucia cats. Now I love traditions and eating traditional food and pastries that comes along with them. But this year I thought I would try a different version of our traditional Lucia cat, a Lucia Lenten bun.

A Lucia Lenten bun is a mixture between two traditional Swedish pastries, the Lucia cat and the Lenten bun. The Lenten bun is eaten on another Swedish traditional day, Fat Tuesday. The idea of the Lucia Lenten bun is something I have seen in ads and around the Internet. And it really stuck with me because I love both those pastries. Therefore I thought I would try and make a Lucia Lenten bun for Lucia this year.

Below are photos of my version of the Lucia Lenten bun I made this Lucia morning here in Sweden.

To make my Lucia Lenten bun I used a homemade Lucia cat (made by my sister and my mum), almond icing, spray whipped cream and some icing sugar. Because I used spray whipped cream I had to eat it quickly, because otherwise the cream would have melt.

I really enjoyed the Lucia Lenten bun. It felt a bit more luxurious to eat than a traditional Lucia cat. Although I could never eat quite as many of the Lucia Lenten buns as of the Lucia cats in one time, because the Lucia Lenten bun is a bit more heavy and sweet than a Lucia cat. But now I know how a Lucia Lenten bun tastes like and for that I am very happy. :p

Happy Lucia 2020 from Sweden!
