1 Tbsp. yeast 1/4 c. lukewarm water 1 tsp. sugar 2 1/2 c. lukewarm milk 3/4 c. butter, melted 1 egg 1/2 tsp. salt 1 c. sugar 1 1/2 tsp. cardamom 8 c. flour candied cherries, halved, for garnish Lemon Icing: 2 c. powdered sugar or icing sugar 1/4 c. milk 1 tsp. lemon extract
Rich and eggy and aromatic with cardamom, this Swedish bread is great with a cup of coffee. Note: Because this is an eggy bread, it needs plenty of time to rise. Yield: 2 coffee rings In large bowl, combine yeast, warm water (about body temperature), and 1 tsp. sugar. Set aside 5 min. Add milk, butter, egg, salt, sugar, cardamom, and 2 c. of the flour. Knead in enough of the flour to make a stiff dough. Knead 8 - 10 min. In large, greased bowl, allow to rise in warm place until doubled, about 2 hours. Punch down. Divide into six equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope about 24 inches long. Braid three ropes into a braid, coil braid into a ring. (Repeat) Grease tops lightly. Allow to rise 40 min. Bake at 350 degrees F, 35 - 40 min, until golden brown on top. Decorate with candied cherries. Combine all ingredients for icing. Drizzle icing over top. Part of our Swedish Julbord 2004.
