Ingredients

Dough

  • 75 g butter
  • 175 ml milk
  • 50 g buttermilk (or plain low-fat yoghurt)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 250 g plain flour + 250 g bread flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 2-6 cardamom pods (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs

Filling

  • 75 g butter
  • 175 ml milk
  • 50 g buttermilk (or plain low-fat yoghurt)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 250 g plain flour + 250 g bread flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 2-6 cardamom pods (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 20-30 g butter (room temp)
  • 60 g soft brown sugar
  • 30 g white sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Method

  • STEP 1
    Mix together the dough ingredients and leave to rest for 1h30 - 2h. Take the butter out of the fridge and leave at room temperature while the dough rests.
  • STEP 2
    When the dough has rested, roll it out into a rectangle approx 30x40 cm.
  • STEP 3
    Spread the softened butter (with your hands is easiest) over the surface of the dough. Mix the remaining filling ingredients (sugars and cinnamon) together in a bowl, and spread evenly over the buttered dough.
  • STEP 4
    Roll the dough up and cut into 12 slices. Place them on a tray (with some spacing between them as they will rise and expand while cooking) and leave to rest in the fridge overnight (up to 12h).
  • STEP 5
    Take the tray out of the fridge and leave for approx 1h to regain room temperature (to ensure an even bake).
  • STEP 6
    Brush the buns with milk, then bake for 15-20 mins at 160°C in a fan oven (or 180°C in a conventional oven), or until golden brown.
  • STEP 7
    Brush with honey, dust with icing sugar, or drizzle with icing.
