dough: 125 g butter, 5dl(500ml) milk, 125g sugar, 1 tsp cardamom (i grinded the capsules very fine and the intensity is stronger than when using the already grinded one you can buy), 25 g fresh yeast, 600g + 75 g flour, 1/2 tsp bakingpowder, 1/2 tsp natron/baking soda

filling: 200g brown sugar, 100g room temperature butter, grated zest of 1 orange (i didn’t put that in), 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cardamom, 1 egg (to brush on the rolls), maybe some icing sugar and water for the topping

melt the butter in a little pan/pot.add milk and sugar.pour it all into a big bowl.add cardamom and then the fresh yeast.wait about 5 to 10 minutes until the yeast dissolves and it kind of bubbles.add 600g of flour and mix it.then allow the dough to rise (1 hour).add and mix in the 75g of flour, the baking soda and the baking powder.roll out the dough, approximately 40-60cm.mix the brown sugar with butter(i melted the butter first), zest of an orange, cinnamon and cardamom.grease/put on the dough and then roll it up and cut it into 12-14 slices.put baking paper on a baking plate and place the slices on there with about a 1cm gap/ a kitchentowel on top and let the rolls/slices rise for another 30 minutes.

preheat oven to 180° C.brush the rolls with the egg and let them bake for about 30minutes.

i hope the recipe works out for you and you like the taste of those cinnamon rolls as much as we do.good luck.

    So happy to be reading all of these yummy recipe write-ups from you today. Great food photography & very inspiring. Makes me want to go back to eating dairy just so I can make these gorgeous recipes. LOL. Awesome that your kids help you out with everything, too! Questions: What time of day do you try to cook that you get such great light? Also, I noticed in some pictures you have this cute tablecloth or something that you are rolling your dough out on. Is it a tablecloth or something you put down while you are baking specifically? Just curious 🙂 Thanks as always. Wren.

    Superlecker! Ich war erst etwas skeptisch, wegen dem Backpulver. Aber die Zimtschnecken sind köstlich :-). Ich backe meine normalerweise nach einem Rezept vom Plötzblog, aber das dauert immer so lange….Danke für dieses schnelle Rezept!
