It’s the official cinnamon roll day tomorrow, Froday 4th October. And, yes of course the sweet and delicious pastry filled with butter, sugar and cinnamon has its own day, just like the waffle do.
So Friday 4th of October is the day to get hold of your Scandinavian style Cinnamon roll. There’s an excellent recipe that you might want to check out, at Little Scandinavian. Or even easier, now that the Scandinavian food is so accessible, is to pop in to one of the many and oh-so-lovely Nordic bakeries and shops in London to get hold of your sweet treat.
Fabrique Hoxton has some great tasting cinnamon buns -and you get to hang out in the cool bakery situated in a railway arch, underneath Hoxton tube station. Buy two cinnamon buns, one to eat straight away and one to take home. And their sourdough bread that will keep for days!
Bageriet Covent Garden, tucked in the mews of Rose Street, just off the busy Floral Street. This is a traditional Swedish bakery in a charming Gustavian style. The cinnamon buns are light and scrumptious. Do check out the classic Prinsessetårta when you are there.
Nordic Bakery Piccadilly Circus in the leafy Golden Square Finnish bakery serving up heavy and filling cinnamon buns in minimalistic surroundings. A fresh breath indeed, just moments away from the busy Regent’s Street.
Lisa’s Portobello Road offers freshly baked cinnamon buns, from Bageriet. May we recommend to have a healthy Swedish lunch, before finishing off with your naughty Friday treat?
Totally Swedish Marylebone is a old fashioned grocery store, like a “kolonial”. This is where all Scandis would pick up all their necessities, so it’s not really a cafe. But as it’s “Kanelbullens dag”, they are inviting all customers to pop in for coffee and cinnamon bun -for free! See you there?
Wishing you a very happy Kanelbullens Dag!
