How time flies! We made it into the last round of 2014’s version of Blogger For Fall. For our gran final we decided to leave you with some amazing food inspiration, recipe and other nom noms that will make your tummy rumbles. During the last days my fellow Blogger For Fall girls showed you how to do the most healthy Apple Pie Smoothie like Hannah did and Nani cooked a delicious Autumn pasta. Steffi made our moth watering with her recipe for Almond Brownies and Flo showed us how to do the perfect Roast Apple Punch. Now it’s my honor to cook/bake for you and as I’m a big Sweden fan I went for Kanelbullar to sweeten your upcoming weekend!
250g flour + some extra for the worktop
50g butter (already soft)
1/2 cube yeast
a dash of salt
Ingredients for the filling:
3 tablespoons of soft butter
3 generous tablespoons of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (take an extra 1/2 teaspoon if you like it more intense)
Fine, but how to make cinnamon roles out of that? Girls and Boys, that’s easier as it sounds and I’m not the greatest baker, as my little sister has the monopoly on that title. Anyway, now just follow the step by step instructions and soon enjoy your freshly baken Kanelbullar!
1. warm up the milk and put in the yeast – stir it till there are no yeast crumbles anymore.
2. put flour, sugar, salt and the egg into a bowl and then then add the milk-yeast broth (not hot just warm)
3. use the hand mixer to do the heavy labor and knead the dough till everything is mixed up. Then add the soft butter in small bits and mix it all up till the dough becomes (more or less) a ball with smooth surface. Now just cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and place it somewhere warm (near the heating) to rest for about 40-50 minutes.
4. After the dough had the time to develop put some flour on the worktop. Use the rolling pin to flatten the dough (in the shape of an rectangle) and dab it with the melted butter.
5. mix up the cinnamon and the brown sugar and spread it evenly on the buttery dough.
6. then roll up the dough, cut it into 3 cm thick pieces and place it on some baking paper.
7. heat up the oven to 180 C° and bake the cinnamon roles for about 13 minutes.
8. enjoy them with your loved ones!
Hope you like the recipe, which I got from my Mom’s Swedish Cooking Book and transformed it a bit – which particularly means I added more sugar and cinnamon:)
