Cardamon Buns - a very guilty pleasure
This is an embarrassing post to write, but it has to be done. I have many guilty pleasures - but I rarely feel that guilty about them. After all, life is about pleasure. Right?
Anyway. What you see in this picture is one of the most perfect cardamon buns ever baked. It comes, surprisingly, from a supermarket bakery. Ica Maxi in Nacka is where it's at - I don't know if all Ica Maxi's have the same delicious stuff, but I don't think so. It's perfect, really. I like my buns soft and pillowy, and with plenty of flavor. See how it's dipped in cardamon?! Ah, it's just amazing.
I really had to struggle to take this picture. See, this was the one bun that made it home. The rest - I bought three (you get a discount - didn't even make it out of the car. Yes, I scarfed them down almost before leaving the parking lot. In my defense, I had just finished a BodyPump class, and was exhausted and starving. But I've done this before, without such a good excuse.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who's such a glutton at times. Or am I? (Please, reassure me here.)
