I have loved this recipe since the first time I made it. A slice of Cardamom Wreath and butter with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning is the best!

How to Make Cardamom Wreath

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in 3 eggs, evaporated milk, yeast mixture, sour cream, orange peel, cardamom and salt; mix well.
  • 2Beat in 6 cups of flour until mixture is smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface: knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3Punch dough down: turn onto a floured surface. Divide into six portions. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Shape each portion into a 24 inch rope. Place three ropes on a greased baking sheet and braid. It's easier if you pinch the three strands together at the top and then start to braid. Form into a ring. pinch ends tightly together. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 45 mintues.
  • 4Beat milk and remaining egg, brush over wreath. Sprinkle with almonds and sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. (Be careful to not over bake) Remove from pan to wire racks to cool.
  • 5In mixing bowl, mix all cardamon butter ingredients together until blended. Serve with bread.
