    hedi777's Note:

    Traditionally we eat those in Estonia on Shrove Tuesday, after the kids get back from outside sledding on the snow, it so good to eat some warm tasty buns. The correction of the amounts in the recipe has been made.

      Absolutely Outstanding Buns! If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would. Because of the differences in flours from one location to another I did adjust the flour liquid ratio, reduced the milk to 300 ml, and increased the wheat flour by about 100 ml. I also used a ready prepared whipped cream(aka.coolwhip) because I already had it on hand. I love the warm sweet flavor and scent of cardamom. I will not hesitate to use this bun recipe for a regular dinner roll as well. The only thing I need to do is practice shaping buns. Mine tend to look like someone's kneecaps.:) Thank you Hedi for a wonderful recipe!
