Christmas is just around the corner and I get more excited day by day. The other day I was thinking about trying something new for the holidays when I came up with an idea. This year I wanted to try a typical christmas recipe from another country. Each country has its own traditions when it comes to baking, and I really feel like we should try and be more open minded about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love coming home for the holidays and eat my favorites foods that my mom cooks everyyear. I’m Italian and I’m very picky when it comes to cooking. We love our traditions so much and we are the first to be very scheptical when it comes to tasting something different. But we should all try to be open to different cultures, who knows maybe we’re all going to find our new obsession for the next year.
Whilst I was browsing through the internet in a desperate search of “recipes from afar”, I came across the cinnamon rolls. I’m not gonna lie I had heard this recipe before and I always got quite intrigued by it. So this time I actually decided to make them. I mean what’s more christmassy than cinnamon? Nothing in my opinion.
The Kanelbulle (cinnamon roll) is a typical swedish bread. The recipe in itself is very simple, you just have to be a little patient. The dough needs to raise in order to be soft and elastic and ready to form your roll. But trust me it is worth the wait.
