National cinnamon bun day!


October Fourth is the national cinnamon bun day in Sweden - Kanelbullens Dag.

This day is actually getting a lot of attention. All the bakeries are filled with fragrant buns, the food bloggers are all sharing their favorite recipes, and a lot of workplaces are serving cinnamon buns for their afternoon "fika", which is one of the more important cultural peculiarities about Sweden. (And a subject on which I must write more...)

I have several recipes. The ones above are cinnamon "knots", a sort of twisted bun.


Regular buns.


Buns free from eggs and dairy.


And finally, American style sticky cinnamon rolls. Not traditional in Sweden, but delicious.
