“When my kids were little I was a stay-at-home mom. My first duty was to make home-cooked food for the kids; and cinnamon buns, always cinnamon buns. Every day, when my sons came home from school they would ask for homemade cinnamon buns.”
I wasn’t surprised that my Swedish teacher acknowledged the importance of cinnamon buns in her family’s life. Ask most Swedes to name a baked goodie that epitomizes their homeland and they will choose cinnamon buns.
Today Swedes are celebrating Kanelbullens Dag (Cinnamon Buns Day). It is one of those traditions that translates beautifully across nations. Grab a bun and check out my latest posting for Chef Marcus Samuelsson and a recipe for Swedish style cinnamon buns.
