Recipe (makes 30 buns)
- 150 g butter
- 5 dl milk
- 50 g dry yeast
- 1 1/2 dl white syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cardamom
- 850 g plain flour
- 100 g butter
- 1 1/2 dl granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cardamom
- finely grated rind of lemon
- 1 egg
- pearl sugar
Melt the butter. Add the milk and heat to 40 degrees C.
Put the dry yeast in a bowl and add a bit of the liquid until the yeast has resolved. When done, add the rest of the butter/milk liquid.
Stir in the syrup, salt, cardamom and flour and work thorough until you have a smooth and firm dough.
Let it rest for about 60-70 minutes.
Cut the dough into two halves and roll out each piece of dough into a rectangle about 1 cm thick.
Spread the filling on the dough and fold in 1/3 of the dough towards the middle and then fold in the rest of the dough. Do the same thing with the other piece of dough.
Cut out triangles of the rectangles and place them onto a baking sheet. Brush them with a ready whisked egg and sprinkle them with pearl sugar.
Put the oven on to 225 degrees C.
Bake the buns in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes.
Happy Lemon and Cardamom Buns Baking and Happy Birthday Sugar and Spice Baking 11 months old! 😀
