  • 120 g sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar or a few drops liquid vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamom seeds
  • 150 g butter, softly room tempered
  • 1 egg
  • 700-720 g wheat flour

  • 90 g powdered sugar

Set the oven to 225°C/440°F. Heat the milk according to instructions on the yeast package. Crumble the yeast into a dough mixer and pour he milk over it. Add sugar, salt, cardamom, egg and butter. Work some wheat flour into the dough gradually, but save some for kneading later. Work the dough for 5-10 minutes. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes under a cloth. Mix all filling ingredients. Divide the dough into three pieces and knead and shape into round buns. Use a rolling pin to shape the dough into two flat rectangles, about ½ cm thick and spread the filling. Fold the dough from the middle and cut into 1½ thick pieces, twist the pieces and put them in buttered cake molds or pie molds 20-22 cm/8 inches diameter. Start from the middle and work outwards in a spiral until the molds are filled. Squeeze the seams together with your fingers. Let the dough rise another 30 min under a cloth. Mix the frosting ingredients. Brush the buns with an egg, lightly beaten with a fork, and pour nid sugar. Bake the buns in the middle of the oven for 15-17 minutes or until they get a nice, golden color. Take out the buns. Mix the frosting and pour over. Let them cool without a cloth. Powder with powdered sugar. Slice up like a cake.
