Publicerat by 0 comments
Finally! “Kanelbullens dag” is finally here! Or as we call it in english “Cinnamon roll day”. Who can resist a classic cinnamon roll? I know that I can’t! So this year it’s all about the classic roll. But you can use this recipe for buns, braids and anything else that you like. They taste best when they are still warm from the oven.

150  butterDSC06578
5 dl milk
50 g fresh yeast
0,5 tsp salt
1 dl sugar
2 tsp ground cardamom
14-15 dl wheat four

150 g butter
1,25 dl sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
(0,75 tbsp vanilla sugar for vanilla flavour)

1 egg
pearl sugar

Warm the milk and butter in a small saucepan until it reaches 37c.
Crubmle the yeast in a mixing bowl and slowly add hte butter and milk mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until the yeast has dissolved Add the sugar, salt and cardamom. Slowly beat in the flour (around 11 dl) with your mixer. Use the hook attachment . Keep working the dough in the mixer and add more flour if necessary. The dough should not be sticking to the sides of the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it prove for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile you can make the filling. Mix butter, sugar ad cinnamon (or vanilla sugar) together in a small bowl with a fork. Set aside.

When your dough has finished proving take it out of the bowl and on to a floured work face. Knead the dough and cut it in to two pieces. Use your rolling pin to roll out the dough to a rectangle shape. Spread half of the frosting onto the dough with a spatuala and roll the dough together from the longest side. Now cut the roll in as many buns you’d  like. I recommend not to cut them thinner than about 2 cm or 1″. Place the rolls on a tray lined with baking paper. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to prove for 30 minutes.
Turn your oven on 225 c
Repeat the process with your other half of the dough.
Whisk the egg and set aside.

When your rolls has finished proving brush them with the egg wash and put some pearl sugar on them. Bake them in the oven for 7-10 minutes, depending on the size. Take them out when they are golden and let them cool on a wire rack. And now, it’s time to pop them in your mouth and enjoy! Delicious!
