Swedish Cinnamon Bun Day! (Oct 4)

Sunday was the 10th annual Kanelbullens Dag in Sweden, so I baked up a batch. Mine were vegan of course. It took a lot longer than I expected, you have to let the dough rise, twice! So give yourself half a day if you want to make some. Totally worth the time! Apparently the whole thing got started as a way to encourage people to bake at home more.

I used this recipe, mostly. I didn't have any vegan yogurt, and I didn't get cardamom because it cost $10/bottle. And I couldn't find pearl sugar. Have you seen it in Canada? It's just sugar, but it's in bigger chunks than granulated so it looks nice sprinkled on top. I'll have to get some next time I'm in Stockholm. They look prettier with the pearl sugar, and maybe I'll try a recipe with a glaze next time. And I guess I should shell out the $10 for cardamom next time!

I got my guy to take a picture of the pearl sugar (pärlsocker) at his grocery store in Stockholm, I was curious. He baked cinnamon buns on Sunday, too, of course!

Over there at ICA, the ingredients to bake cinnamon buns were on sale: "bake your own buns and celebrate cinnamon buns day on Sunday":

OMG...those look AMAZING!!! I'll bet they were so delish!
BTW: if you really need the cardamom, you should just get to a bulk store if there's one near you. you'll be able to get just a small amount that you'll actually use for less than $1. seriously...we only buy spices from bulk barn because it's SO CHEAP and then just put them in spice jars from dollarama.

I'll have to make them when you come over some time! Yeah, I could get just a few tablespoons of cardamom in bulk, good idea!

Those looks great! Now I'm going to have to dig out my aunt Mary's recipe for cinnamon buns and make them.

There is (er, perhaps was) a Danish delicatessen on Kingston Road just west of Victoria Park. They may have pearl sugar.
