If you ask a Swede what is the most traditional treats we have I think majority will say cinnamon buns. So of course we have a Cinnamon Bun Day and that’s today – October 4th.

These sweet buns that we fill with butter, sugar and cinnamon. And then top with what we call pearl-sugar. My favorites are the ones that have cardamom also in the dough. Yummy!

My cousin Anette and her mother make the best cinnamon buns ever! They manage to get the perfect combination of sweetness, buttery and cinnamon. Honestly I have probably not baked these for 10 years or so…
Therefore, Thanks to my dear cousin Anette who sent me these nice pictures from her baking traditional cinnamon buns.
