Picture of Swedish cardamon bread two ways
This is an incredibly easy and rewarding bread to make. It is perfect for the holiday season, especially if you decorate it up, but I would be more than happy to eat this all year round. My cardamon bread is perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast or any time of day. 

These quantities will give you enough dough for two loaves. For variety I normally make one filled loaf and one plain loaf.
