The sweet scent of nostalgia fills the air during a trip to the mall or passing by local shops in town. It’s enough to stop even the most strong willed in their tracks and never fails to draw a crowd. This cinnamon covered doughy delight packs a punch not only with flavor, but with its history as well! Cinnamon Buns originated in Sweden and the first Cinnamon Bun Day started in 1999 to celebrate the Home Baking Council’s 40th anniversary. The Swedes are so in love with the cinnamon goodness that according to a study done in 2010, it claims that every Swede eats about 316 cinnamon buns a year!
Fun Way to Celebrate Cinnamon Bun Day
Since there are several different recipes for cinnamon buns, get together with a group and have each person bring their own recipe and ingredients. Make sure each person has ample work space and have someone set a timer for 2 hours so that everyone can finish their cinnamon buns at the same time. Once they are all out of the oven, designate a few people that were not cooking to be judges and crown the person who got the most votes.
