International Cinnamon Bun Day

4th October - Kanelbullens Dag (Cinnamon Bun Day) 

International Cinnamon Bun Day is an annual secular holiday in Sweden and Finland celebrated on the 4th October each year... a tradition that we at Miss Maud like to celebrate.

Miss Maud Cinnamon buns are available throughout the year, hand crafted by our bakers fresh each day. The buns are baked for just a few minutes in a very hot oven, making them light and fluffy with a golden brown surface. They are then topped with grains of "pearl sugar" as opposed to frosting or glaze

 We wanted to share this beautiful and skilful craft with you, so we created this video to show the complexity behind this gorgeous sweet treat.

Cinnamon buns can be served warm or cold as a sweet treat and make the perfect accompaniment to a good Miss Maud coffee.

You’ve never had a cinnamon bun until you’ve had a Miss Maud Cinnamon Bun!  

The skilled master bakers at Miss Maud making these beautiful pieces of art by hand, rolling, twisting and knotting them before baking for just a few minutes in a very hot oven, to create a golden cinnamon bun with a light cinnamon heart.

Finished with pearl sugar and sweet spritzing this is the ultimate traditional Swedish treat.

100-Years of history. A Bun with a Story

Our modern cinnamon bun,  was created in the 1920's and will soon turn one hundred years old.  Wartime  rations were starting to come back – sugar, butter, flour and spices. The cinnamon bun was being sold at cafés, but in the kitchen at home we baked different kinds of buns that were shaped as wreaths or long, flat bread. 

Cinnamon added flavoueacr to pastries for special occasions as early as during the 1500’s in Sweden. For king Gustav Vasa’s wedding, large amounts of sweets, cinnamon and other valuable spices were imported.

Coffee is closely associated with cinnamon buns. Coffee travelled a long way before it came to Sweden. In Stockholm, coffee houses were established in the early 1700s, where the men drank coffee while discussing politics and literature.

In the mid-1800’s, yeast made it possible to bake porous, sweet bread to accompany coffee. Wheat became cheaper and more common. When the iron stove replaced the open fireplace, it became easier to bake smaller cakes such as buns and biscuits. And so we developed our thriving Swedish pastry culture. Coffee parties  were a fashionable way to meet and reached their peak during the 1950’s and were  replaced with simpler “fika”.
