When the Robbers Came to Cardamom Town is a legendary Scandinavian children’s story about a very peaceful place where three robbers enter in the night… but they are rather nice and do not take more than they need. In the end they go to jail, but soon they are reformed and part of Cardamom town everyday life. Why Cardamom town, I don’t know… I suppose it just shows how much we love cardamom!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the filling

Quantity Ingredient
200g soft butter
150g caster sugar
2 teaspoons ground cardamom

For the knutar

Quantity Ingredient
1 quantity Cinnamon buns, dough only
00 flour or plain flour, to dust
1 egg, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Make the filling by mixing together the butter, sugar and cardamom.
  2. Divide the dough in half and roll each piece out on a floured work surface to make a 40 x 30cm rectangle. Spread the cardamom filling lengthways over half of each rectangle. Fold the plain side over the filled, then cut crossways into 2cm strips.
  3. Roll these strips of dough twice round your hand, then secure with the end, pulling it through the middle of the mass as you would a hank of leftover wool (this forms the ‘knot’ shape). Place on baking trays lined with baking parchment. Cover with tea towels and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  5. Brush with the egg and bake for 20–25 minutes, then leave the knots to cool on a wire rack.
