Sugar Buns - Recipe

A week ago or so, one of my aqaintances, who runs the Swedish blog "Loving and Living", posted a photo on Instagram of these amazingly yummy looking Sugar Buns that she had made and I asked her to share the recipe....which she kindly did!
Well, yesterday, as the rain poured down, I decided to give this recipe a try. Since it's in Swedish with some specific Swedish ingredients originally in it (Hjorthornssalt och Filmjölk ;)), I had to tweak it a bit and am happy to say that they turned out GREAT!! I also posted the photo of the result on my private Facebook page and on Instagram and also got requests to share the with this in mind, I'm translating my tweaked version of the recipe into English for you here:

Sugar Buns (18-20 buns)
1/2 of a Yeast cube
200g Butter
2 cups of Milk
150g Greek Yoghurt
2 table spoons of Cream
1 cup of Sugar
2 teaspoons of Bicarbonate
1 teaspoons of Vanilla Sugar
A pinch of Salt
Ground Cardamom
9-10 cup of White Flour
1/2 an egg (for brushing)

For the coating
50g of melted Butter
2 cups of Sugar

Melt the butter on the stove. Add milk, yoghurt and cream and ensure it's body temperatured. Pour the fluid over the crumbled yeast in a baking mixer and stir until the yeast has dissolved. Add sugar, salt, cardamom, vanilla and bicarbonate and finally, mix in the flour. Once the ingredients are all mixed, leave it to beat in the mixer for about 10 more minutes. Leave it to rise for about 40 minutes.
Once done, split the dough into 18-20 pcs. and roll your buns into the desired shape. Leave to rise for another 40 minutes. Set the oven to 225-250 degrees (Celsius). Brush your buns lightly with egg and leave them to bake in the oven for about 8 minutes.
To coat the buns, leave them first on a cooling rack for about 5-10 minutes to avoid burning your fingers or having the buns fall apart ;)). Melt butter in a pan and put the sugar in a bowl. Brush the buns with butter, then roll them in the sugar (one by one) and you're all set! 

Absolutely delish!!!! Enjoy ;))
