  • Ankarsrum Assistent and dough roller


Cardamom buns

  • 125 grams dairy-free butter
  • 500 ml Oat drink Thick oat drink for coffee is the best
  • 125 grams castor sugar
  • 11 grams dry yeast
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ~750 grams fine wheat flour

Gingerbread cookies

  • 100 grams dairy-free butter
  • 70 grams brown sugar
  • 1,5 tsp baking powder
  • 1,5 tsp gingerbread spices
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 0,5 tsp salt
  • 195 grams flour
  • 100 ml oat-based cooking cream (not flavored)
  • Powdered sugar for the buns.


Cardamom buns

  • Melt vegan butter and let cool.
  • Warm oat milk to 42 C and pour it into the Ankarsrum bowl.
  • Add sugar and mix it with low-medium on the Ankarsrum Assistent.
  • Sprinkle dry yeast and let set for a few minutes.
  • Add cardamom, salt and flour little by little while mixing on low-medium.
  • Pour the melted butter in the very end and knead the dough in the Ankarsrum low-medium for 10 minutes.
  • Cover the bowl and let dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • Place dough on a well floured surface, add more flour if dough feels too sticky. Roll the dough into small balls, about 18.
  • Place balls on a baking sheet, cover and let rise for about 15 minutes.
  • Bake in the oven for about 3-5 minutes. Baking time depends on the size of buns (smaller buns about 3 min, larger buns about 5 min)
  • Place a gingerbread cookie heart on top gently pressing it, and bake for another 3-6 minutes or until bun and cookie has a lovely golden brown color.

Gingerbread cookies

  • Make gingerbread cookie batter when the bun dough is rising.
  • Whisk dairy-free butter and sugar in the Ankarsrum machine.
  • Add all dry ingredients while mixing, and add the cream last. Mix until fully combined.
  • Place batter well covered in the fridge.
  • When the buns are rising, take the cookie batter out of the fridge and roll it into a thin (about 0,5 cm) sheet. Take out small hearts or any shape you like.
  • Press gently on top of prebaked bun and bake in the oven for about 3-6 minutes until ready.
  • Let buns cool for a while and sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Enjoy these wonderful holiday treats!


You can brush maple syrup on top of the buns before baking so they become beautifully golden brown when baked.
