  • Sift the flour, yeast, salt, cardamom powder and the sugar into a bowl.
  • Add the liquid and melted fat, mix to a dough.
  • Turn out the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it until the dough is smooth, cohesive and has a shiny surface.
  • Return the dough to the bowl, sprinkle with a little flour on top, cover with a cloth and leave it in a warm place until it doubles in size, about 1 3/4 hours.
  • Work the vanilla sugar mixture with the castor sugar until evenly mixed, and reserve.
  • Work the dough in the bowl for one minute, turn it out on a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth,  1-2 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough into a 45 cm square, spread the softened butter over the dough and sprinkle with the filling mixture.
  • Cut the square in half and roll up the two pieces lengthways.
  • Heat the oven to 200 C. Place the rolls on a lightly greased baking tray.
  • Using scissors, make incisions at regular intervals along the rolls but without cutting right through.
  • Pull the slices to alternate sides, squeezing each top to a point.
  • Brush the rolled dough with the beaten egg and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Cool for 10 minutes and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
