Shrovetide in Denmark, means happy children who dress up, hitting the cat of the barrel and eat cream buns.
I have started a tradition for our family to `beat the cat out of the barrel,` for both adults and children. We are all dressed up in all sorts of costumes. We will announce both a cat queen, a cat king for both children and adults. It’s a really fun tradition after we have beaten the barrels down, we drink hot oat milk chocolate and eating vegan cream buns.
For sure the cat is going down. It was a bit cold, Princess Anna in s light blue dress had to have her jacket on.
Bun dough will rise 1/2 an hour before being rolled into round buns.
Use a rolling pin to roll each bun and place pastry cream and remonce (Lord Mayor filling), with a piece of chocolate in the middle.
Fold the dough around the filling so that it does not flow out during baking.
Place dough balls with the folding-down on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Let the buns rise for 40 minutes under a dish towel.
The buns are placed in an oven at 190C for 15-16 minutes, until golden and has grown high.
Ready to be eaten along with hot oat milk cocoa and oat milk cream. Happy `Shrovetide`Fastelavn.
