Preparation

Dissolve the baking powder in the warm milk with a teaspoon of sugar. Grind the cardamom seeds well, having removed the outer shell. Beat the eggs with some salt in a bowl, then add the cardamom, the sugar, the melted butter, half the flour and the milk with the baking powder. Mix well, then slowly add the remaining flour and knead thoroughly until you have a ball of dough. Leave it to rise for an hour. When risen, roll out the dough into 4 sheets of approximately A4 size. Now spread the rolled out dough with blueberry jam, then with a pastry cutter cut each pastry sheet into four. Now you should roll up each quarter into a little ball with the jam inside and then add a little bit more jam to the centre (you’ll get very dirty hands!). Let them stand for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake for 25 minutes at 180°C.
