Sweden - Cinnamon Rolls

Something else I've heard lots about but never tried. I thought they'd be good for a Sunday morning breakfast.

Ingredients:

Rolls:
* 1 packet yeast
* 2 tbls melted butter
* 1 cup milk
* 0.25 tsp salt
* 0.25 cup sugar
* 3 cups of flour
* 1 tsp cardamom seeds

Filling:
* 2 tbls butter
* 3 tbls sugar
* 1 tsp cinnamon

Topping:
* 1 beaten egg
* 1 tbls sugar

Add the melted butter to a cup of milk and heat (either in a pan or microwave) until they're lukewarm. Add the yeast and stir until it dissolves.

In a bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt and cardamom seeds. Add the milk/yeast/butter and form into an elastic dough.

Leave to rise for 30-40 minutes.



Soften the butter and add the sugar and cinnamon to form a spreadable paste.

Knead the risen dough for 2-3 minutes and then roll out into a large rectangle. Spread the cinnamon paste all over the rectangle.



Roll the rectangle up starting with the widest edge until you have a sausage shape. Cut it up into 15-20 inch thick rolls and place on a baking tray inside a muffin case.




Leave them to rise more for 20-30 minutes. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar on each roll. Bake for 10 minutes at Gas Mark 7.



I've never been a fan of cinnamon before but these were really delicious. I had one while they were still warm and it was soft, squidgy and really light. Fingers crossed the kids like them because I've got 20 of them tempting me now!
