Cinnamon buns always remind me of our summer holidays in Sweden. We went to Sigtuna, a little village near Stockholm. It was exactly as you imagine! Little houses with a red wood facade and white windows, surrounded by a forest and a lake. It was like a fairy tale! In this little village we went to a café called “Tant Brun” (aunt Brown) and ate the world-famous swedish Kanelbullar (cinnamon buns).

Since then I can`t get enough of this delicious pastry! And lucky me I found a recipe that is very easy to make and tastes nearly as good as the originals in Sweden! I made a few alterations to the recipe so that it is sugar and lactose free. I`m hooked!

Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon Buns
Makes 20

  • 200ml soja milk
  • 400g flour
  • 1 sachet yeast
  • 150g Xylit (if you want to make the recipe sugar free) or normal sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • salt
  1. Heat the milk (it shouldn`t boil) and 75g butter in a pan.
  2. Mix the flour, 75 g Xylit, one pinch of salt and the egg in a bowl.
    Then add the milk and butter.
    Use the dough hooks of the mixer to knead the dough until it`s smooth.
    Shape it to a ball and let it rest for about an hour. Make sure that the dough is covered with a towel and rests somewhere it`s warm.
  3. Heat the oven (175 degrees air circulation).
  4. Heat 50g butter in a pan.
    Mix 75g Xylit with the cinnamon.
  5. Take two baking papers. Lay the dough on one baking paper and put the other baking paper above it. Then roll the dough out until it is 35 x 60 cm big.
  6. Butter the dough with the fluid butter and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over it.
  7. Then cut it across and roll each piece up from the long side.
    Cut each roll in ten sections and lay the buns on a baking sheet. Flatten them a little bit with your fingers.
  8. Cover them with a towel and let them rest for another 10 minutes.
    Then give them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes.

You can enjoy these little buns warm or cold. Exactly as you prefer!
Enjoy & Gudden Appetit!

Love, Caroline ♥
