Another recipe from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Like the honey nut treat, this food does not have an in-game recipe, so I just implemented some nordic baking techniques to make this recipe.
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
4 cups plus 1/3 cup flour
1-1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 packet active dry yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 very large egg yolks
1 cup milk
A pinch of salt
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar
round dough cutter
Step 1: Butter and Dough Prep
Cream the softened butter and 1/3 cup of flour in a small bowl. Spread onto a large sheet of wax paper and press another sheet on top of the butter. Place this butter sheet into the fridge and allow to chill.
Mix the dry yeast and 2 cups of the flour in a large bowl.
Heat the milk, sugar and salt on low until warm, about 110-115 degrees F.
Pour the warm milk mixture into the flour mix along with the eggs, almond extract and cardamom and mix well by hand or using the dough hook attachment of a mixer.
Slowly add in the remaining two cups of flour, allowing the dough to come together of the dough hook (or really wearing out your arms!).
Cover the bowl with a moistened tea towel and allow to rise in a warm area until the dough has doubled in size.
