Danish Hveder

Danes love buns, and these are the fastest and yummiest we know !


700g strong white bread flour

350g full fat milk

55g caster sugar

55g soft butter

50g fresh yeast

2 eggs

2 tsp salt

2 tsp cardamon


Add the eggs to the milk and stir. Crumble the yeast into the weighed flour using your finger tips. Then add the butter and crumble into the flour. Add the salt and cardamon, and mix with a wooden spoon to distribute the spice equally. Make sure the salt does not touch the fresh yeast until the yeast is fully crumbled in the flour.

Add the wet ingredients and mix all together.

If using a dough mixer, pour the milk and the eggs in first, then add all the other ingredients. Mix for 10 minutes or knead by hand for 15 minutes.

Put into a clean bowl and let it prove until it doubles in size.

Then take the dough out and cut into 12 x 75g pieces. Place in a lined tray with high sides, 3cm apart and leave to prove covered with either a plastic bag or tea towel.

Bake for 15 minutes at 180C. Take out of the tray but leave on the baking paper and leave on a rack to cool.

Eat as soon as they aren't too hot !
