What is Kanelbullens Dag? (Sweden’s Cinnamon Bun Day)
Every year on October 4th the Swedes celebrate Cinnamon Bun Day. Bakeries, cafes, restaurants, and convenience stores across the country sell cinnamon-spiced Swedish buns. According to my research on google; this day was invented in 1999 by the Home Baking Council (Hembakningsrådet), a club of baking ingredient producers now run by Danish sugar company Dansukker.
I am sharing my recipe to make at home for my spelt flour version of the traditional Swedish Kanelbullar (cinnamon buns). Kanelbullar is among the most famous Swedish treats for FIKA or Swedish coffee breaks. Click the image below for the recipe.
