Nothing brings back childhood memories like the smell of cardamom… I love traditional Norwegian sweet buns! I only realized while scavenging for ingredients how Norwegian recipes always have that exciting little twist on everything. Like the use of cardamom and vanilla sugar in cakes and bakes. I’m so used to it that I never questioned it, but apparently it’s very bold and odd! It’s so exclusively Scandinavian that I had to buy cardamom pods, peel them to get the seeds and ground them myself! Geez! Baking is tough work in UK! Soon I’ll get some vanilla pods and make my own vanilla sugar as well. Damn straight!
