Swedish Cardamom Wreaths
Swedish Cardamom Bread has been a Christmas tradition in my family for generations. My grandmother always had plenty for us to have with a cup of coffee; yes coffee! Looking back, the coffee was mostly milk but at the time I felt so grown up to be having coffee and cardamom bread for Christmas morning!
I’ve given you two ways to do cardamom bread; one is quite simple and my daughter’s favorite. It is actually the way my grandmother usually served it; the bread is braided and when baked it is drizzles with a powdered sugar glaze. The other method is to fill rolled dough with cardamom, cinnamon and brown sugar; form it in a circle then snip and twist to form a wreath. This is my favorite way. It’s so beautiful and I love the filling!
