Kanelbullar (cinnamon rolls)

Freely translate recipe so I hope it make sense – recipe provided by Alexandra


150g butter
5 dl milk
50g yeast (fresh if you use dry mix it in the flour and keep the butter/milk a little bit warmer)
1 dl sugar
2 tea spoons cardamom
about 800g flour

2 table spoons cinnamon
150g butter
1dl sugar


1 egg
coarse sugar /decorating sugar


Melt the butter. Pour in the milk and heat to 37 degrees Celsius (finger warm). Add the sugar and cardamom.

Crumble the yeast and pour the milk/butter over in small amounts at the time so the yeast dissolves. And then slowly add the flour while mixing until you get a nice dough.

Let it rest and prove it for about 30 min.

Knead the dough, split in two and roll out to a square a few milimetres thick. Mix the filling and spread out evenly on top of the dough. Roll and cut it in about 1,5 cm thick pieces.

Let them rest again for about 40 min. Brush with egg and sprinkle on the sugar. Bake in the oven for about 5-10 min on 225 degrees Celsius.
