Norway school bread EpcotSince October, Walt Disney World ® bakeries, stores and street carts have been filled with some of the tastiest ooey and gooey goodness the holidays are known for. But you don’t have to wait until Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas every year to indulge in one of Disney’s ® most decadent snacks. In fact, all you have to do is visit the Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot ® and you’ll enjoy the little slice of heaven that guests can’t seem to get enough of - the School Bread.

The name may make you think of something you put peanut butter and jelly between for your kid’s lunch (it’s actually a recipe from a classic Norwegian snack properly titled, Skolebrod, that kids take to school in their lunches or parents sell at bake sales) but School Bread is way more than just a slice of bread. It’s an experience and is easily one of the tastiest treats you’ll find in Epcot ®. The recipe for School Bread is pretty simple. It’s really just a sweet roll injected with vanilla pudding or custard then covered with icing and toasted coconut and topped with a dollop of the same custard that’s on the inside.

If all of that cream and icing sounds like a sweet bomb to you, the School Bread is actually less sweet than you think. Some say it tastes like a cross between a cinnamon roll and a dinner roll with the texture being more springy than moist. The vanilla custard is not too heavy but is spread evenly throughout the roll so you get a taste of it in every bite. And if you do like a little sweet, both the custard and toasted coconut will give you just enough of a sugar fix your craving. Plus, the icing is chilled, making for a surprisingly refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

Like many of the treats in Epcot ® the School Bread is certainly portable but there is plenty to see and experience in Kringla Bakeri og Kafe you just may want to sit and enjoy the tasty experience before continuing through Epcot ®.

If you don’t enjoy mounds of custard or sweet coconut, Kringla Bakeri og Kafe has plenty of other treats that are sure to satisfy any craving like the popular waffles, sweet pretzel and tasty sandwiches including the Norwegian Club and Salmon and egg sandwich.
