While I’ve tried a few of the desserts in the past from Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, located in the Norway pavilion at Epcot, I haven’t reviewed any here on the blog. In particular, I’ve had the Cloudberry Horn (now slightly revamped into the Troll Horn) and the Lefse. As a neglected pavilion for my reviews, I sought to rectify that situation with a visit, and I ordered a cult classic (which I’ve never had), the School Bread.
Kringla Bakeri og Kafe serves a few entrees consisting primarily of sandwiches, but the real draw of the space are the pastries. Most of the items on the menu you won’t find elsewhere on property. I have a lot to look forward to! 😉
But on to the School Bread. This pastry is described as a Sweet Cardamom Bun filled with Vanilla Creme Custard and topped with Glaze and Toasted Coconut.
The bun of this pastry definitely leans to the side of its namesake “bread.” It’s light, airy, and not too sweet, with a hint of cardamom. The vanilla creme custard is silky, and once again not too sweet. I found most of the sugar in this treat to come from the glaze that’s holding on the delicious coconut. I need to take cue from Disney Hipsters Adam and Andrew to make this at home.
Here’s a look at the other pastries you’ll find at Kringla Bakeri og Kafe:
