Saffron cardamom bun - Leif Mannerström's recipe

This weekend I've been longing for something with saffron and cardamom and I found a recipe from Leif Mannerström, who is a famous chef in Sweden with these 2 ingredients. So I had to try these :)

100 g butter
1 g saffran
5 dl milk
50 g yeast
250 g curd cheese
2.25 dl sugar
1 msk cardamom
0.5 tsk salt
1.5 l flour

1 egg

Melt the butter and add the milk. Pour mixture into mixing bowl and allow to cool until “finger-warm” (still quite warm, but just cool enough to touch). Stir in yeast and let sit for 10 minutes. Add sugar, salt, curd cheese, cardamom and saffron.

Mix 7 dl flour into liquid. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough (just until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Don't add too much flour as the dough gets dry). Put the dough to a large bowl and cover it with a clean towel and allow to rise until doubled, approx. 1 hour.

Take the dough after 1 hour and knead two or three times on a floured surface. Take small handfuls of dough and roll into buns. Place on a baking sheet that is covered with a backing paper and cover with the towel again, and let rise until doubled (approx. 1 hour).

Brush buns with beaten egg, and bake in preheated 225 °C oven about 6-8 minutes, just until brown.

Hope you like it too!
