With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to get in the baking mood and try out new recipes! Part of what makes Christmas… Christmas, is the amazing food you get to eat! Okay, and all the surprises and gifts you get to offer and receive!
I think I’ve already mentioned that boller or buns in English, are a classic Norwegian dessert that you can find literally everywhere here in Scandinavia. If you’ve ever been to Norway, you’ve probably had at least a boller. There are many variations of this dessert and you can make them with raisins, chocolate (have you tried my Sjokoladeboller recipe? you should!), vanilla or just simple! The star of this recipe – cardamom – will make sure you will end up with amazing buns no matter what filling you decide to try.
Oh, and by the way, if they look messy, it’s because, well, they are messy! If you’re clumsy like me, you’ll end up making a huge mess in your kitchen while assembling this… But what can I say? Totally worth it! Don’t worry though, even if it looks a bit messy, the steps are pretty straightforward. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I’ll try to clarify it for you!
Note: For this recipe, I’ve used store-bought vanilla cream, but you can totally make your own. Look online for vanilla pastry cream or vanilla custard recipes and you’ll find plenty of good recipes. I recommend this one.
