In Sweden, today is kanelbullens dag or cinnamon bun day. Basically, it’s a conspiracy where all the bakers got together and decided hey, let’s make Swedish people eat even MORE cinnamon rolls than they already do and designate a day just for eating them.
What exactly is a kanelbulle, you ask? It’s a cinnamon bun made out of yeast, flour, butter and of course, cinnamon. By most accounts, it is the Swedish sweet of choice with fika (a coffee break). The cinnamon bun is not my favorite Swedish goodie, but I was happy to indulge in one today anyway.
