Swedish people like to “fika” which means having a break with coffee and baked goods like Kanelbullar.
Every year on the 4th of october the Swedes celebrate the Kanelbullens Dag (cinnamon roll day). So use this day to enjoy some kanelbullar by buying them almost everywhere or even make them yourself what might be the best way. In order to do this, here is one recipe.
How to make swedish kanelbullar:
Dough; 150g butter, 5dl milk, 50g yeast, 1dl sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. cardamon, 1.4l flour
Filling: 100g butter, 1dl sugar, 2 tbs. cinnamon
Glaze: 1 egg, pearl sugar
For the dough: Melt the butter and add the milk and the yeast and warm it up to ca. 38°C. Then add the sugar, salt, cardamon and flour and knead the dough very good. Let it rise at room temparture for 30 min.
Divide the dough in 4 pieces and roll it out in squares (app. 3 mm thick).
Then put the filling on top. First spread the butter (which should be room temperature) on top and then sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top. Roll the dough the long way and cut it in ca. 1cm thick pieces and put them with the cut edge upward in paper molds. Let them rise again for 40 min.
Finally, brush the egg on the rolls and sprinkle the pearl sugar on it. Then they are good to go in the over for 5-8 min at ca. 200°C.
