Finnish milky dough

Incredibly soft and foamy dough. It’s soft like a feathers and delicious!

Preparation time 15 minutes .. Rising 60 minutes


  • 500 g all purpouse flour
  • 250 ml milk
  • 85 g caster sugar
  • 75 g soft milk butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 7 g dried yeast
  • 2 tsp freshly crushed cardamom seeds


Heat the milk to lukewarm. Beat the egg with a little lukewarm milk. Pour the mixture back into the pan and whisk well. Add the sugar, salt and cardamom and mix well.

Mix the yeast with the flour. Put a little flour mixture into the pan and whisk well so much air into the dough. Beat in the flour mixture to start with a whisk by. Stir when the mixture is too stiff on with a wooden spoon. Finally, add the butter and knead it with your hands thoroughly mixed into the dough to everything.

Knead the dough for 10 minutes on a lightly dusted work surface or until the dough is elastic and no longer sticky. If necessary, add a little flour. Put the dough in a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let rise for 1 hour in a warm place, or until the dough has doubled in volume.


You may be replaced by cinnamon cardamom or other spices and so you always have a nice and new variation.

For less intense flavour of cardamom use either a ground cardamom.
