Ingredients (for 30 cinnamon buns):
for the dough:
1 tsp salt
for the filling:
1. Melt the butter in a cooking pan and add the milk. Heat it up and dissolve the yeast.
2. Put the liquid in large bowl and add the flour, sugar and salt. Knead until you have a smooth dough.
3. Cover the dough with a towel and put it aside for 30-40 minutes.
4. Divide the dough into 3 or 4 parts and roll them on a floured work space. Try to get the dough square and quite thin.
5. Grease the squares with the butter which should be at room temperature and generously sprinkle them with the sugar and cinnamon.
6. Roll up the dough squares and cut them in 3 cm thick slices. Put them on your baking sheet and let them rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 250°C.
7. Coat the buns with the beaten egg and sprinkle them with some more sugar.
8. Depending on how thick your buns are they will need to bake for about 10-15 minutes so keep an eye on them.
9. Let them cool under a towel.
My Kanelbullar may not be the prettiest but at least they tasted good. I've been wanting to try them at home for ages and I'm glad that I finally got the opportunity because as I said it was way easier making them than I had thought (even though you will need to bring some time). Have you been able to try Swedish Kanelbullar or do you prefer another dish from up north?
