This is my bread machine adaptation of a family recipe for Finn Biscuit (known as cinnamon rolls to the non-Finnish)

The instruction are for a WelBilt Bread Machine. If you use a different brand of machine, the ingredients may be put in a different order--consult your owners manual.


  • 1 Tblsp (or one packet) yeast
  • 3 cup flour
  • 3/8 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil (or 1 egg)
  • 1/2 tsp (or more) ground cardamom
  • 1 Tblsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup potato water


  • Put bread machine on dough cycle, when completed roll out as for cinnamon rolls, spread with butter, sugar and cinnamon. Roll up jelly-roll fashion and cut into 1/2 or 3/4 inch rolls.
  • You can bake individual biscuits or make a coffee ring, as follows: Spray pie pan with Pam, place rolls along the outside edge of a pie plate, overlapping them and fanning them out. Squish the rolls together with your hands. Let dough rise while oven heats.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
  • TIPS:
  • --Potato water is the water left over after boiling potatoes. You can get the same effect by adding a tablespoon or so of instant potatoes and increasing the water by a tablespoon, or two.
  • --To remove the coffee ring from pie plate, cover top with a dinner plate and turn dough out onto dinner plate. Turn the ring over on a second plate and brush still hot ring with water and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • --If you set your bread machine on a timer, use the oil instead of an egg. I usually use the oil anyway and cannot tell the difference.
  • --You can bake the dough in a loaf and when cool slice into biscotti-sized slices and bake again in 200 degree oven for a rusk-type sort of sweet crusty toast.
