Fastelavnsboller med lakrids - Shrovetide bun with liquorice

Last year I got a request from one of my good blog readers, that she would "like to have" a recipe on Shrovetide buns with liquorice, so I took a tour out on google looking for a recipe on Shrovetide Buns with liquorice, where I decided to bake this one fastelavnsboller med lakrids from Samvirke.

I have the following modification on the original recipe. Being a liquorice fan (natural trait of being Danish) I decided to give it full power with liquorice, using a combination of English liquorice powder and raw liquorice powder. I also decided to add a little lemon zest in to the bun filling. And finally I have removed the vanilla sugar from lemon icing.

Wauuw, this is a Fastelavnbolle for connoisseurs. The very first impression you get is a sweet refreshing lemon flavour from the icing, as you bite longer and longer into the Shrovetide bun the power of liquorice kicks in - uuhmmm. So here my good blog reader from Estonia is your request from last year being fulfilled incl my little purple twist on the lemon icing.
