Cardamom Coffee Buns

SERVES: 10 PREP: 40 mins TOTAL TIME: 2 hours 30 minutes

A slightly different take on cinnamon rolls.

My messy, buttery, sticky cinnamon bun adventures have been well documented. I’m adding this new recipe to the family tradition so that Luna and Miles can learn early the pleasures of rolling out sheets of fluffy pillowy dough and resisting the urge to lay on them like a down blanket! These have cardamom, a warm and yummy spice you find in countries like Denmark and which make the buns extra Christmassy.

For the Dough:

  • cups flour, plus more for kneading

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt

  • 1 packet (2¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast

  • ½ cup 2% milk

  • ¼ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 egg, beaten

For the Filling:

  • 20 whole green cardamom pods (or 2 teaspoons ground cardamom)

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ cup dark brown sugar

For the Cream and Glaze:

  • ½ cup heavy cream, at room temperature

  • 3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee, at room temperature

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • cup confectioners’ sugar
