It’s been a bit of a rough week. The sniffles and the sneezes have jumped around to all of the occupants of the house. Everyone is feeling a little bit worn out. To bolster spirits there is a starter for cardamom doughnuts in the kitchen.
The inspiration comes from reading How to Hygge. There is a delicious brioche-y sounding doughnut recipe that incorporates ground cardamom into the dough. The finish product is rolled in orange blossom honey. That with a cup of hot, hot coffee sounds divine.
I do not have orange blossom honey. The house is completely out of honey of any variety – colds will do that. Instead I do possess a bottle of orange blossom water. I’m making a simple syrup. Once it cools I will add a few tablespoons of the blossom water. It will add a fresh, floral element to what should be a buttery, sweet weekend treat.
