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.
Buns free from eggs and dairy.
And finally, American style sticky cinnamon rolls. Not traditional in Sweden, but delicious.
