SQF Advent Calendar – 13th December Cinnamon Rolls Recipe Card

  • Share
The countdown to Christmas has started – and so has the SQF Advent Calendar! Every day we’ll bring you either a fact of the day or a festive recipe card, so keep visiting our website and follow us on social media to see what we’re up to this festive season!

It’s the thirteenth day on our advent calendar – and what better accompaniment to a mug of hot coffee at this time of year than the cinnamon bun?

Cinnamon as a commodity spice dates back to 2,000 B.C., when it was first imported from Egypt to China and was so highly prized that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs (along with highly prized peppercorns!). Trade during the Roman Empire saw cinnamon being traded widely and easily across Europe, where it was increasingly used in European bakery.

4th October is International Cinnamon Roll Day – a holiday invented in 1999 by the Swedish Home Baking Council to celebrate its 40th anniversary. In 2010, the average Swede ate the equivalent of 316 cinnamon buns, according to the Swedish Board of Agriculture and Statistics – that’s 143,766,006 kilos of cinnamon buns consumed by Swedish citizens alone! The Swedes probably eat this gargantuan amount during the daily practice of fika, where Swedes take a break for pastries, coffee and socialising – would definitely make the working day a bit more tasty!
