10 pieces, preparation time 2 hours.



2 dl whole milk

1 dl orange juice

25 g fresh yeast

1 egg

1 dl sugar

1 tsp of salt

1 tsp cardamom

1 dl almond flour

  1. 8 dl wheat flour

75 g butter


1 egg and almond flakes for buttering



250 g mascarpone cream cheese

grated peel of two oranges

2 dl whipped cream

1 dl powdered sugar


Prepare the bun dough by mixing fresh yeast with milk and orange juice. Add the egg and dry ingredients. Knead the dough, preferably for 5 minutes. Add the butter and knead until smooth. Leave the dough to rise under a cloth for 30 minutes. Divide the dough into 10 parts and bake into round buns on a baking tray. Let rise under a cloth for 45 minutes. Brush the buns with egg and sprinkle with almond flakes. Bake the buns in a 170°C oven for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool. Prepare the filling by whisking the mascarpone, grated orange zest and powdered sugar in a bowl. In another bowl, whip the whipped cream and fold into the cream cheese. Cut the buns in half and fill with the cream cheese and whipped cream mousse.
