Swedish Cardamom Buns Recipe

The Swedish Cardamom buns recipe has quickly become one of my favorite baking recipes as I simply love the taste of cardamom.

Cardamom is a taste that takes a little getting used to but once you have acquired the taste for cardamom then you are generally hooked for life. What better way to enjoy the taste than in these amazing cardamom buns? These are not quick and easy to make but they are really worth the effort that goes into them.

Cardamom buns can be enjoyed almost any time of the day ranging from breakfast right through to after dinner. Just be careful – they are highly addictive and before you know it you will be preparing to bake another batch.
