Warm, spiced with cardamom, and perfect for breakfast or tea, my new Swedish Cardamom Buns recipe is your new favorite.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook or in a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, yeast, cardamom and salt. Stir in the milk and softened butter and knead together to form a dough.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cardamom until evenly mixed and set aside.
Once the dough has risen, divide the dough in half for ease of handling. On a floured surface, roll out one half into a very thin rectangle. It should be 14x21 inches (36x52cm).
Place the dough with a long side closest to you and with a very sharp knife, cut the dough into 12 even strips.
Once the bun is formed, place it on a prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining strips of dough.
Now repeat this process with the remainder of the dough.
Cover the dough with some plastic wrap or a damp kitchen towel and let rise again in a warm place for another 30-40 minutes, or until doubled in size again.
