Sticky Buns

Wonderfully sticky buns with a delicious filling!


Step 1
  • Put the yeast in a bowl. Melt the butter in a pan and add the milk, heat to a maximum of 37 °C. Pour the liquid over the yeast.
Step 2
  • Add the sugar, cardamom, egg, salt and most of the flour. Mix to a smooth dough and leave covered for about 30 minutes.
Step 3
  • Using an electric whisk mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon together to make the creamy filling.
Step 4
  • Grease a baking tray about 20x30 cm. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to a rectangle, about 50x30 cm.
Step 5
  • Spread the filling on the dough and roll up into a long roll. Cut the roll into 16 pieces. Put them on the baking tray with the cut surface upwards and leave to rise under a cloth for about 1-1 ½ hours.
Step 6
  • Heat the oven to 225 °C. Brush the buns with beaten egg and bake in the middle of the oven for 18-20 minutes.
Step 7
  • Mix the icing sugar, water and vanilla sugar to form a glaze and then swirl over the warm buns.
