Glada Kanelbullens Dag!

If you don't already know, I'm mighty proud of my Swedish heritage and generally enamored of all things Nordic. So, I was pleased as punch to discover that today is Sweden's national Cinnamon Bun Day. (In case you need proof). Of all the glorious things that deserve their own holiday, cinnamon buns have certainly earned their place.

I'm suddenly having flashbacks of the lovely smells wafting through the Helsinki train station from the bakery in the basement. To be honest, I am far more familiar with Finnish cinnamon buns than the Swedish variety - but here's a recipe for Kanelbullens that looks absolutely scrumptious (note that it calls for cardamon - which is incredibly pricey here in the states but worth every penny). Oh, that I could leave work right now get baking. Alas!  


  1. Yippee! 1) I am glad to have found your blog 2) I also adore my Swedish heritage (min mormor och min morfor kommerfran Sverige - my grandparents on my mom's side are from Sweden)
    I am so glad we have one more thing in common.

  2. yes maggie, i had those cardamom rolls when i was there! they are so so good. maybe we can make some when you are here for thanksgiving?
