Cinnamon Bun Day is always celebrated on October 4. Swedes love to have a Fika and it must always be served with a cinnamon bun.
Modern cinnamon bun, or cinnamon snail, was created around 1920 and will soon turn one hundred years old. Food that had been rationed during the wartime period was starting to come back – sugar, butter, flour and spices. The cinnamon bun was being sold at cafés, but in the kitchen at home we baked different kinds of buns that were shaped as wreaths or long, flat bread. The baking of cinnamon buns at home started in the beginning of the 1950’s.
The cinnamon bollard’s day is one in Sweeden annual theme day , established in 1999 by Kaeth Gardestedt. At the time, she was the project manager of the Home Afffair Council, historically an association of yeast manufacturers, dairy manufacturers, sugar manufacturers and marginal manufacturers, now run by Dansukker.
