Kanelbullar - cinnamon bun in Swedish – presumably originated from Sweden in the 1800's. 

Around the mid-1700’s, northern European bakers began mastering super-rich, butter-infused yeast doughs. The French shaped them into buns, followed by the Dutch frying them in oil. Around this time, the British invented the Chelsea bun, a type of currant bun; all while the Germans developed the schnecken, a bun rolled with sugar and currants. These buns laid the groundwork for the Swedish to add cinnamon creating the very first cinnamon rolls...

Now in 2020 we have Motherbuns, our own version of cinnamon rolls, made with a date & cinnamon butter, wrapped in butter-rich sourdough brioche and topped with vanilla bean & cream cheese glaze.
