a horrible yet incredibly tasty hybrid mutation between donut and a cream puff?

Though the lower part looks suspiciously like a thing I'd call "Berliner" in German. Is it filled with jelly?

no, its just a bun with cream and a cream made of almond and sugar (almost marzipan)

we have a tradition in sweden called "fettisdagen" (probably "fatty-day") when we eat these so called "semlor"

they do taste really good in fact.

If its fake cream, then its a Devon Bun. If real cream then its just a Cream Bun.

Fettisdagen would be literally translated as The Fat-tuesday, since it's "Fet" and "Tisdagen" pieced together, and it is on a tuesday.

That's all you need to know. Incidentally, there is no real English word for Semla.

I have just learned yesterday that a Berliner is called "pfannkuchen", pancake, in Berlin.

Funny huh?

or not.

That's so weird. You eat them two days after we norwegians do. ;D
We call them "fastelavnsboller", where "fastelavn" comes from the german "vastel-avent", which is the evening before the fast, the Shrovetide. So our version (the exact same) could be called Shrovetide Buns, although I'm quite sure that very term isn't used in any other situation than when referring to the scandinavian tradition.

The tradition of making these buns is closely related to the tradition of tying naked virgins to a plough. Fortunately (or sadly?), the latter is no longer in use.

Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.
