Elegant EPCOT

We spent our day today at EPCOT. What a blast we had! Emi and James surprised us with gift cards which we were able to use at all the food booths at The Food and Wine Festival. So we ate our way around World  Showcase Lagoon. Well, it was delicious and such a blast. There was very little cloud cover and scorching hot for us northerners. We kept downing water and searching for shade.

Our Fastpasses today were: Turtle Talk with Crush (totally tubular, Dude), The Seas with Nemo and Friends (Ida loved seeing the fish and especially the manatee) and Frozen Forever (which scared and delighted both Ida and Grandma).

The Guinness and Baileys Shake and the Irish Soda Bread with Cheddar Cheese Dip were my favorite things of the festival. However, after more than ten years of planning to try the School Bread at Norway’s Kringla Bakery og  Cafe today that mission was accomplished. It was a cardamom biscuit with coconut on top, and a delicious cream center and topping. We had to pick some up to take back to our villa for  breakfast tomorrow. Delectable!

What an incredible day! Meet me at the Kingdom. Disney’s Hollywood Studios tomorrow.

School Bread (Skolebrød)

Twenty-five days from today our Walt Disney World family reunion vacation begins. It’s just over three weeks away now. Wow!

We have been to EPCOT many times now, and every time I have wanted to try School  Bread from Kringla Bakeri og Cafe in the Norway pavilion. This is it, folks. This is the trip where I pick up some School Bread and take it back to Disney’s Old Key West for a treat, or maybe for breakfast the next day.

Here’s what Disney has to say about it:

School Bread

Sweet Roll filled with Custard and dipped in Coconut
Short  and sweet, right? Now check out this fantastic review by  The Disney Food Blog, my favorite Disney blog! Thank you, AJ! Check out her blog. Seriously, it is just the best!
School Bread has long been a beloved snack for many Walt Disney World visitors, and more guests are being introduced to its deliciousness every day. This treat, found in Epcot’s Norway pavilion at Kringla Bakeri og Cafe, is actually pretty simple. A sweet bread roll is injected with vanilla pudding or custard, then covered with sweet icing and toasted coconut. The School Bread recipe comes from a classic Norwegian snack (properly titled “Skolebrød”), which kids took to school in their packed lunches or parents sold at bake sales.
The description aside, this is one of those Disney World snacks that actually isn’t too sweet! Which is possibly why so many people love it. This yummy treat won’t knock you on your kiester for the rest of the day — at least in my experience — so it gives folks a good “rest” snack before moving on with the rest of their Epcot touring!
Regarding taste and texture, the bread here is a cross between a cinnamon roll and a dinner roll. It’s not super moist — more springy. But the sweet vanilla custard is extremely smooth and abundant (my big worry before trying this snack was that there wouldn’t be enough custard — not a problem). And the basic icing and coconut on top give it just enough extra sweetness.
While you can eat this snack while walking, I highly recommend getting a table in the little covered area behind Kringla Bakery and taking a seat while snacking. It’s a great opportunity to relax, and trust me — you’ll want to remember this experience!
Now do you understand why I want to try this? Kringla Bakery og Cafe, here I come!
Meet me at the Kingdom.
