First baked by the Swedes after World War I, cinnamon rolls (kanelbulle) are a type of sweet bread. These cinnamon swirl pastries and buns are common throughout Northern Europe. They are most popular in Sweden. There’s even a National Cinnamon Roll Day (Kanelbullens dag) on October 4 that is celebrated in Sweden. Cinnamon rolls are typically enjoyed with afternoon coffee. In the U.S., they are also eaten at breakfast or for dessert.

Cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make. All you need is flour, cinnamon, sugar, and butter. Make a yeast-leavened dough and then roll it into a sheet. Brush the dough with butter. Then, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it. Roll the entire sheet of dough into a log and then slice it. Bake and enjoy them plain or drizzle icing, glaze, or frosting on top.

Cinnamon rolls are similar to sticky buns. Both are made with flour, cinnamon, sugar, and butter, but sticky buns are topped with a caramel glaze and chopped pecans. Honey buns are a variation of sticky buns that include honey in the glaze.
