This humble sweet treat, more commonly known as kanelbulle in Sweden is a national favourite, and one that has been copied across many parts of the world. They have been covered with a layer of icing in Belgium and the United States, and filled with raisins in the UK, but those with a simple scattering of sugar on the top are the original Swedish favourite. Often made when guests are expected over for coffee, they have become so popular that in recent years it has been given its very own day – kanelbulle dag. Literally translated as ‘cinnamon bun day’, it is now celebrated in Sweden and around much of northern Europe each year on the 4th October.
Made from a simple yeast-leavened dough, this recipe is easy to follow and a great tasty treat to go with your morning coffee (or any time, for that matter). If you’ve never baked with yeast before, don’t panic, this is a great recipe to start on. Made by rolling the dough so that the sugar, butter and cinnamon forms a spiral on the inside – too much cinnamon in the dough would kill the yeast – this is a fairly simple treat to make and will leave you wondering why you’ve never tried it before after your first bite.
