Sadly I don't have Falling Cloudberries by Tessa Kiros (although I do have two of her other books and haven't yet managed to peruse them properly) although I may have to get it now. I couldn't look up the method for making the dough, so I literally mixed all the ingredients together and left them for two hours! No kneading required! I'm not sure if this was right, but perhaps Celia or Joanna will be able to comment. There didn't seem to be very much movement in the dough, even after two hours, but it wasn't particularly warm in my house and I always forget how subtle the growth can be (i.e. I've already forgotten the size of the dough when I left it!). However, the yeast was obviously active as they proved well and sprang in the oven.
I halved the recipe and got 15 rolls from it - they're pretty small. I also wanted to try one of the variations Joanna suggests at the end of her post. So I halved the dough again and added about 1/2tsp vanilla extract to one lot of dough, and the traditional cardamom (about 1/2 tsp ground in the pestle and mortar) to the other lot. When it came to rolling out, I used a sugar/cocoa powder (about 3g cocoa powder, 15g sugar) mixture for the vanilla portion, and the cinnamon/sugar flavouring for the cardamom dough. I forgot to spread the dough with butter for the chocolate and vanilla version but remembered for the other. The butter makes the filling stick much better to the dough, I'd recommend it! I also entirely forgot to egg wash the rolls or sprinkle with sugar and I wish I had remembered because the sugar would have added a nice crunch.
The prettiest one!
