The traditional Bun Day in Iceland - Bolludagur

Today is the traditional Bolludagur (e. Bun Day) in Iceland. It´s a Christian tradition and is seven weeks before Easter. It´s originally a tradition from Denmark in the 19th century.

My mother baked these cream-filled buns yesterday and I believe that most of Icelanders will eat many buns today. I decided that I´m only going to eat two cream-filled buns today but please do not hold me to it. I will probably eat ten!

If you want to bake cream-filled buns yourself here is a recipe online:
