Cinnamon Bun Day rises again

It’s Cinnamon Bun Day (4th of October) and I’ve been thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone made a batch of kanelbullar, organised to meet at a favourite park, took the freshly baked cinnamon buns down to said park and maybe spend a relaxed afternoon with your favourite people who make you laugh?


I am. Now if only I’d thought of it a little earlier.

Luckily any day can be Cinnamon Bun Day, you don’t have to wait until the 4th of October to bake these cinnamon sweet bready treats.

Have you tried them? Want to give them a crack?

Cinnamon Buns

250g  sourdough starter

1 tsp commercial yeast

675g strong bread flour

250mls milk

200mls water

100g sugar

100g softened butter

1 tsp cardamon

1 1/2 tsp salt

Cinnamon mixture

100g softened butter

100g raw sugar (or brown)

2 tsp cinnamon

Add all dough ingredients together, mix well and then knead until dough is elastic on a lightly floured surface (I use my mixer.)

Dough should be well incorporated and feeling smooth.

Pop the dough back into the mixing bowl and leave to prove for a couple of hours, with a fold or two in between, (or covered and over night.)

On a lightly floured bench, roll the dough out to a rough rectangle, add cinnamon mixture and cut into portions. Twist, roll, decorate in your favourite way then, line on a tray and bake at 190C for approximately 15-20 minutes (depending on the sizes.)

  1. Wait, Cinnamon Bun Day is a thing?? I had no idea! I’ve just been to a flea market and had a cinnamon doughnut – surely that counts.
    Seriously though Brydie, your buns look amazing and perfect – gourmet bakery quality.


    • I’d love that Jane. The twisting thing is tricky, and I have no idea how to describe it…over, under, pull and tuck? I used to have a video on here on how to do it, but it was pulled due to copy right (fair enough).


  2. Golly gosh I will give this a go. But I doubt it will be as good as yours but pretty damn near. My new oven (in our rental) is finally installed after two weeks of issues and the old one not working since our bumper foraged fruit season last Spring.


    • That’s a long time to have a dodgy oven Zena. Happy baking if you do make them, slap the dough down, drive some of the cinnamon mixture into the middle and then cover it up with more dough, they’ll still taste the same, promise.


  3. The twisting is glorious but a girl has to keep some secrets ;). The year has gone SO fast Ms Cityhippyfarmgirl! I remember last years cinnamon bun post like it was yesterday. I had better make these STAT to quell my alarm.


  4. Omg. Stop. It.
    Actually, funny you should mention it, I made cinnamon buns for a friend’s birthday breakfast a couple of weeks ago. Sooo delicious, but not nearly as delicately twisted as yours ❤️
