fødselsdagsboller (birthday buns)

very simple and very tasty, especially with butter and blueberry jam!
you can either make them with raisins or chocolate (i made half of them raisins and half chocolate).
here is what you need:
  • 500g white flour
  • 50g yeast
  • 200ml milk
  • 2 eggs (one for the dough and one to glaze them)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100g butter/margerine
  • 50g sugar
  • raisins/chocolate
  • 1/2  tsp ground cardamom (double it if you are using ground cardamom from the supermarket)
  • i also added a very smal amount of ground cloves
  1. warm up the milk until it is handwarm (37°C) and dissolve the yeast in it. now add everything else (except the egg for the glaze) and knead it until it becomes a homogenouse dough (you might have to add some flour). cover and let it sit for 20 min until it doubled its size
  2. roll you dough until it is saussagelooking and cut it in 20 pieces. roll them into balls, put them on a backing tray, cover and let them double their size over the next 30-40 minutes. preheat you oven to 225°C.
  3. glaze them with the mixed egg and bake them (put the tray on the lowest level) at 225°C for about 10-15 minutes.
