Cinnamon Rolls – Sweden

Cinnamon rolls are a delicious staple in bakeries across the US. Visit nearly any bakery and you’re likely to find the warm and gooey bun, oozing with icing. This simple yet mouth-watering dessert is made with a basic sweet dough that is filled with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter, which is then rolled up and cut to make rolls that are filled with the caramel-y goodness of the brown sugar. They are then baked and topped off with a simple white icing that melts onto the warm buns, adding some sweetness and texture. One bite of this delicious creation and you’re sure to be in love! Cinnamon was discovered in Sri Lanka over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans were responsible for spreading this spice around. Around the mid-1700’s, bakers all over the world started experimenting with yeast dough; the Dutch fried it in oil while the French baked it. Soon, the Germans developed a bun which was rolled with sugar and currants, to which the Swedish added cinnamon. This conceived the very first cinnamon roll, which went on to become a favourite all over the word. Today, this bun is stuffed with different kinds of mixtures that include raisins, chocolate, fruits, berries, and spices such as nutmeg. The glaze or icing may also vary, depending on which part of the world you are in. But we guarantee that this treat is sure to taste delicious everywhere!   PIC: tosaltandsee.com
