Cardamom Rolls



I've started baking from a charming cookbook called Swedish Cakes and Cookies. It was a Christmas gift from Giles to Bella last year and is full of wonderful things. 

These are Cardamom Rolls. Cardamom is not a spice I've used much of--it's so expensive! But I got some at an ethnic market for a reasonable price and used a lot of it in these beauties!

There's cardamom in the dough, and then the filling is almond paste, butter, and more cardamom. So fragrant.

Thats funny! I got that very same book from a swedish friend last august as a wedding present! I haven´t had a chance to try any recipe yet,but my husband is most eagerly anticipating it :-) Glad to know the cardamom rolls are a good place to start!

They sound amazing. I'm surprised that cinnamon (or cardamom) rolls haven't taken off in Australia, they look so good! I don't suppose you know of a good gluten and dairy free recipe...?

It was cardamom that led me to purchase a mortal and pestle. Fresh ground cardamom is like nothing else!
Now I use the mortar and pestle for things I would have never imagined...
like bashing open a bulb of garlic and easing the cloves right out of their skins.

These rolls are beautiful and will likely make it onto the coming week's menu.

Thank you so much for your reply Anna! I will be ordering it. I just received the Vintage Cakes book inspired by all your wonderful creations. FYI I should tell you that I have been for about three years, ever since my shoulder surgery and more recently my carpel tunnel release surgery, very uninspired and slack in doing anything creative. But I knew that if I immersed myself in your blog I would again feel the spark and joy of being creative. At least I feel the beginnings of a spark of wanting to create beauty in my home again. You should know that your blog is a great blessing to me!
