When I was doing research my professor used to say that all major inventions come through accidents. Yes I made these delicious buns also by an accident. I was planning to make Swedish cinnamon buns using the recipe from the book “Bread by Global baker Dean Brettschneider”. Recipe asked for bread flour, however I accidently took all-purpose flour and only realized my mistake half way. And I ended up making these chocolate stuffed cardamom buns.
Hubby told me to throw that and make another batch. However I didn’t feel good about throwing away all the dough, so made these chocolate stuffed cardamom buns. What I like about this book is that measurements are so correct and whether you use metric or American you will get same result. I tried one more recipe from the book which I liked very much and I am going to blog about it soon. I also need to make Finnish Pulla bread which is festive one. I have tried Norwegian cinnamon buns earlier and blog about that Here is the link. I need to try rest of the cinnamon buns from Scandinavia.
When I thought of making chocolate stuffed cardamom buns, two methods comes into my mind, one is just stuffing with chopped baking chocolate. Other one is to make chocolate ganache and then stuffing. Since I was in hurry I opted for the one method with just baking chocolate, I used semi sweet baking chocolate, as I know the dough is not too much sweetened. Since I had not used pearl sugar in any recipe for a long time, after the egg wash I decide to add that. If you don’t have it in your hand you can just try with turbinado sugar.
This is an easy recipe, first you need to make buttery dough and then stuff your favorite chocolate into it, set aside for few minutes for another rise and bake enjoy with your coffee or tea. It is a great treat if you like both chocolate and bread.
