One of the most typical Swedish things are 'Kanelbullar ', which translates to “cinnamon bun”. In Sweden they even have a special "Kanelbulle" day (October 4th). If, like me, you like cinnamon you are going to love this (I always have them with a hot cup of cappuchino) and after I finish my detox this is one of the first things I am going to make :).

How to make Kanelbullar (it's really simple)?
For 40 small kanelbullar
Ingredients for the dough: 8 dl flour, 25 g yeast, 75 g butter, 2 1/2 dl milk, 1/2 sugar, 1 pinch salt.
Ingredients for the filling: 100 g butter, 1 dl sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon.
Ingredients for brushing: 1 egg, sugar.
Cut the yeast in small pieces in a big ball. Melt the butter and then add the milk, put on the heat (just warm this up, do not boil). Put the milk with butter in the ball and stir gently to melt the yeast. Add salt and sugar. Mix well and work the dough for at least 15 minutes. Put the dough aside and let rest covered for 1 hour.
Prepare the filling: mix all ingredients until you get a nice soft cream.
Take the dough now and roll it out on a floured surface (make a rectangulare). Spread the filling on the dough and roll it. Cut about 1 ½ cm thick slices and put them on a bulle form. Let them rest for about 30 minutes.
Bring the oven to 200. Brush each kanelbulle with the egg and sprinkle with some sugar. Bake on oven at 200C for about 15 minutes.
