Kardemummabullar directly translates from Swedish to Cardamom Buns. These are some of the staples of the Swedish pastries and usually enjoyed during Fika (which is the Swedish coffee break that's more about socializing than actually drinking coffee). There is another version of this pastry, very similar to Kardemummabullar, which is Kanelbullar- the same recipe but with cinnamon instead of cardamom. I haven't been to Sweden yet, but this buttery bun full of cardamom notes makes me feel like I'm in a coffee shop in Stockholm. They are super easy to make, and their knot shaping technique is so fun; you have to try it! Here I used ground cardamom, but if you don't have it, it is totally fine- just grind some cardamom pods. This recipe yields 12-14 Cardamom Buns.

After all the butter incorporated into the dough- keep kneading for an additional 5-6 min.

Step 6

Step 9

Spread the filling evenly over the entire rectangle, using a spatula or soft dough scraper.

Step 10

Fold one end of the shorter side of the rectangle toward the middle of the rectangle. Now fold the other short end of the rectangle over the one just folded making them slightly overlap at the center. There will now be three layers of dough and two layers of filling.

Step 11

Roll this layered rectangle out once more into a larger rectangle. Again- 1/2 cm thickness.

Step 12

Cut strips of dough about 1-1.5 cm wide. Roll them on themselves, then roll into a knot, and place them on the baking tray, leaving enough space in between for proofing.

Step 13

Cover the shaped buns with a towel and let them proof for about an hour.

Step 14

Preheat the oven to 450F or 240C.
