Kløben Christmas buns – Kløben Christmas rolls

It is the 1. of December and the month of Christmas has started!

I’ve been looking forward to – and stressed out a little – about the goals that I have set for myself . A whole month with a post on the blog EVERY DAY! In Danish AND English!
I thought that the Advent Calendar would start in Danish only – because I had no English-speaking subscribers – that has changed 😀
I am MEGA curious about what you think of this Advent Calendar.
What DO you like and DON’T you like?
Do you have any good ideas? ALL ideas are welcome.

Here on December 1. I started Christmas with a classic in my family – Kløben buns/rolls!
The delicious fatty, sweet Christmas bun filled with butter and dried fruit – what’s not to like!

I am one of those people who are glad that succade is not completely extinct. I want succade in my Christmas buns and candied orange peel – in return, I have no need for the multi-colored cocktail cherries. I add goji berries and dried apples instead – but if you like cocktail cherries then, by all means, add them.

You do not need to use white wheat flour, you can bake Kløben buns with ordinary wheat flour, I do not think they are THAT much healthier wholemeal. 😉

I bake these Christmas buns a few times in December. Usually the first Sunday of Advent and when my parents come to visit – they also enjoy the Christmas classic Kløben buns/rolls.
Which holiday classic is your favourite?
