Cinnamon Rolls (Kanelbullar)

What makes these different from American cinnamon buns? Well, while there are many recipes out there, I'll point out a few things. First - cardamom in the dough. Very important. Second, these are baked in a very hot oven for just a few minutes. This makes them light and fluffy, with a nice brown surface yet not dry or overbaked
Third,In Sweden, the common way of baking cinnamon rolls (kanelbullar) is to put them in individual paper cups before baking.(Bun cups - they're like slightly lower muffin cups.) Fourth, no glaze!

Dough
150 grams butter
500 mls full fat milk
50 grams yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
150 ml caster sugar
800 grams plain flour
2 tablespoons cardamon (kardemumma)

For the "cinnamon butter" :
125 grams butter
150 ml caster sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon

Decoration:
1 egg, beaten with 1/2 tsp water, and a tiny pinch of salt
pearl sugar



Dough:
1.Melt the butter in a saucepan, and add milk. Heat to lukewarm/finger warm.
2.In a large bowl, crumble the yeast and add a little of the butter/milk liquid. Stir the yeast in until it becomes a smooth paste. Then add the rest of the liquid.
3.Add the sugar and the salt. Add the flour and the cardamom.
4.Knead the dough by hand or with machine, knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-8 minutes.
5.Place a damp tea-towel over the bowl and leave the dough to rise, for about 30-40 minutes.
6.Divide the dough into two. Roll out each part to a large rectangle.Spread each with softened butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
7.Roll each rectangle into a tight roll, starting at the long edge, and cut each roll into about 10 pieces.
8.Place each piece in a paper cup on a baking sheet (covered with parchment paper so you won't end up with a mess), cover and leave to proof for 30 minutes.
9.Beat the egg with a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp of water, and brush this carefully on the buns. Finish by a light sprinkling of pearl sugar.
10.Bake at 250°C for 6-8 minutes, until they're as golden as you like them

Hej ovo savršeno izgleda!
Posebno mi se sviđa dodatak kardamoma. Taj začin baš daje jedan poseban šmek kolačima. :)
