  • 100 gr unsalted butter
  • 500 ml whole milk, lukewarm
  • 50 gr lump of yeast
  • 120 gr caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 600 gr plain wheat flour
  • 200 gr full spelt flour

  • 80 gr sugar
  • some honey
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 100 gr unsalted butter, lukewarm
  • raisins
  • chocolate powder


  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • coarse sugar (optionally)


Add butter, sugar, honey and crumbled yeast to the tepid milk.

Sieve flour in a bowl, add cardamom and salt.

Pour in tepid milk mix and knead until the dough peels away from the bowl. Dust with a bit of flour.

Cover and put in a warm place and let rise to double size for about 30 min.

Flour your working top and knead again until the dough peels away from your hands.

Roll out the dough to a rectangle about 1cm thick.

Mix the cinnamon, sugar, chocolate and butter for the filling and spread evenly on top of the dough. Then roll up the dough carefully and cut into slices of about 2 cm. Put them on the cut surface on a baking tray.
