Baking stories [Kanelboller, Sjokoladeboller]

by - 2/02/2014

Hei and welcome to my crafty blog! Today I want to give you two recipes for typical scandinavian boller. I made kanelboller (cinnamon rolls) and sjokoladeboller for a school event tomorrow. We will have a lot of fun at the Varingskollen with Emil´s classmates and parents with skiing, BBQ and these boller.

They taste really good, my kids love them!


300 ml milk, warm
2 tsp dried yeast
50 g sugar
500 g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
75 g butter, melted
1 tsp ground cardamom
1 tbsp butter, melted

For  the kanelboller:
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

For the sjokoladeboller:
200 g chocolate chips

  1. First make a starter dough as follows: heat the milk until lukewarm and pour in yeast and 1 tsp sugar and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix flour, remaining sugar, butter, cardamom, salt and starter dough and knead it up to 5 minutes until firm but soft. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let it rest for about an hour until it rises considerably.
  3. For kanelboller: Roll out the dough about 2 cm thick on it  (40cm x 30cm). Mix sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl. Now brush the melted butter onto the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Then start rolling the dough from the broader site until you have a big long roll. Cut about 2 cm thick pieces and place these with one cut surface up. Leave these to rest until considerably risen again.
  4. For the sjokoladeboller: add 200 g chocolate chips to the dough and make balls that easily fit into your hands and then let them rise again for about 25 minutes, covering them with a tea towel and keeping them in a warm area.
  5. In the meanwhile heat the oven to 225º. Bake the whirls or sjokoladeboller for about 10-15 minutes until golden.
