Wanderlust to Scandinavia
June 12th, 2018 | bread & pastries
If there are Scandinavian cinnamon buns at home, then I know our daughter is going on vacation to the far north of Europe, or she has just returned. Yesterday it was time again: incredibly seductive scent of cinnamon and cardamom moved through the house. And in fact: in two weeks she’ll start. Sweden, Norway, Finland.
Every Scandinavian fan knows it: the cinnamon bun. For sure, there are at least as many recipes as for the famous “Hamburger Franzbrötchen”, which is also a kind of cinnamon bun. But what makes the two clearly different is cardamom. It gives the special aroma, which one can taste in many of Scandinavia’s pastry.
By the way: Lukewarm the cinnamon buns taste the best…
Scandinavian cinnamon buns
(gives about 24 buns – Attention: dough needs 2,5 h time for rising + 60 minutes baking time)
AND THIS IS HOW THE WIFE OF THE CAPTAIN DOES IT
I like to use freshly ground cardamom. I “crack” the light green capsules with a knife handle and then dissolve the black kernels out. For grinding, I use a cast iron spice mill, which works great. The aroma is much, much more intense than when you buy ground cardamom.
