Mix vanilla and egg, beat until mixed. Add the Buttermilk and the baking soda; (I have used 7up�) and sift the dry ingredients into this.
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well. Put the container into the refrigerator chill over night.
Take out and roll small pieces of the dough into long strips, then form them into a figure eight,(like a pretzel) put them back into the refrigerator for about an hour, when they have raised to approximately what looks to be the right hight.
Bake in a 230ºC pre-heated oven for approximately 6 to 8 minutes, (May vary with the weather so keep an eye on them) but they should be a light brown before you remove them.
Refrigeration is one of the keys of "KRINGLA" making. They must be refrigerated in order for them to get the flavor, you could bake them without refrigeration but you lose a lot of the flavor.
You can also use.
A: OATMEAL. B: RAISINS. C: WHOLE WHEAT.
You can fill them with your favorite filling, Cream Cheese, Jelly, etc. You don't need eggs or yeast. They are not too sweet, and definitely not boring like a bagel, (Sorry Bagel lovers). It is a coffee Bread not like Muffins, which are too sweet, and also do not have too many calories.
This recipe came from a fella from the town of LOS OSOS CA He is a out of work Carpenter who started baking and selling these wonderful Rolls, He said that this is an original recipe that he got from his grandmother.
I've tried nuts, and love the cream Cheese one, You could even use Custard Filling, Ive also used Different flavored oils like Pure orange oil, Butterscotch, several Berries types. and they turned out just great.
