This was a lovely bread to make - the dough silky and easy to knead, the way it rose beautifully, the lovely smell of cardamom as it was baking.
It was slightly odd having something called “finnish pulla” and have that flavoured with cardamom - because, to me, cardamom is a distinctly indian spice. Well, we do learn while we bake along with Julia!
I skipped the scattering of pearl sugar as I wanted it to be more savory and I don’t think it was the worse for wear.
Initially I didn’t want the hassle of forming a wreath but after braiding the dough and ending up with a long “rope”, I thought “heck it” and joined the ends up.
