alright you guys.first i need to let you know that one day my friend stine surprised me with those super yummie cinnamon rolls.it took a while, but a few days ago i finally got my hands on her recipe.she found that recipe in a norwegian magazine, if i remember right.
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/distance.place 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.
