“Kanelbullens dag”, The cinnamon bun's very own day falls on October 4th every year. It is an annual theme day established by the Swedish Home Baking Council in 1999 in connection with their 40th anniversary. The purpose of the day was from the beginning to get people to bake more home-baked, as well as increase sales of flour, yeast and margarine but today it has grown to become an important day in the Swedish calendar and the most famous of all the food based theme days we have here in Sweden.

Approximately 7 million cinnamon buns are sold on Cinnamon Bun Day each year. 51 percent of Swedes eat at least one cinnamon bun on this day, and at least half of all employers offer their employees cinnamon buns at work.

Cinnamon buns are common pastries in northern Europe and in the USA, but did you know that the cinnamon bun originates from Sweden? Cinnamon buns were made in other forms and shapes as early as the 1600’s but the cinnamon bun as we know it today began to be baked in bakeries around the 1920s when goods rationed during the First World War, such as butter, sugar, wheat flour and cinnamon, reappeared in stores. However, the goods were expensive, and until the 1950s, the cinnamon bun was seen as something of a “luxury fika”. When the Swedish economy took off in the middle of the last century, baking became popular, and the cinnamon bun went from a luxury side for the fika to the most common side to go with the fika.

If you like really big cinnamon buns, you should head to Café Husaren in the district of Haga in Gothenburg. Hagabullen, a cinnamon bun the size of a plate, weighing an average of 500 grams, is baked and sold there. The giant buns have been baked since the café was started in the 1980’s.
