Cinnamon Roll Day

October 4 is the annual Cinnamon Roll Day (in fact, this is a day brought up by a marketing event in 1999, as described on Wikipedia. Not a real tradition, but everyone in Sweden follows it now.). On this day, everyone can and MUST eat cinnamon rolls. :-D :-D Let's pause our diet challenges for this day.

What is a cinnamon roll? It is an irresistible dessert for mortals that is made of yeasted dough, wrapped in layers of sugar and cinnamon powder, to make a round like a rope roll, and then baked in the oven for 20 minutes.

In the past few years, I have also started baking because of my son’s gluten-free diet. Of course, baking delicious cinnamon rolls is a necessary course. They must meet the daily fika needs of the Swedes. Your refrigerator must refrigerate some national desserts: cinnamon rolls! in case of any friends pay you a surprise visit.

Anyways, I love this dessert and below picture is one cinnamon made by my 13-year-old daughter. One of the best kanelbulle (cinnamon roll in Swedish) I have ever tried.

Here is one quick and easy recipe for cinnamon rolls.
