  • 115 gr sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 175 ml whole milk
  • 100 gr butter, softened


  • 150 gr butter, melted
  • 200 gr brown sugar

  • 2 tsp ground cardamom


  • 150 gr cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 200 gr powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To serve

  • nuts, crushed


  • The temperature in your kitchen should be around 18-22ºC.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar and eggs. Add in yeast and start kneading. 
  • Add in milk slowly. 
  • Knead for 10 minutes until the dough starts to look soft and homogeneous. Add in milk, knead again and make a 5 minutes pause. Knead for 10 more minutes until the dough separates itself from the bowl.
  • Form a ball and grease the bowl with olive oil. Place the ball on the greased bowl, cover and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight (a maximum of 8 hours).
  • The next morning, take the dough out of the fridge and let it grow a little bit more at room temperature, for around 30-45 minutes, until warmed up a little bit.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, prepare the filling: combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Preheat oven to180ºC.
  • Stretch the dough over parchment paper and shape it as a rectangle 1-2 cm tall.
  • Brush melted butter over the dough and sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top.
  • Roll up the dough and cut it into slices.
  • Cover a circular tray with parchment paper and place the sliced one next to the other.
  • Let them rise for10 minutes more at 18-22ºC.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the frosting: beat cream cheese with butter, icing sugar and vanilla extract. 
  • Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Prepare the frosting by beating the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Once the rolls are cooked, spread frosting on top and serve with sprinkled nuts.
