Raw Kanelbullar (Swedish Cinnamon Buns)

Kanelbullar! One of the Sweden’s most delicious national treasures that I have always been craving…

These raw kanelbullar are made with a perfectly soft cardamom dough, a creamy cinnamon-caramel filling with raisins, and chewy celeriac crumbs. Try our creative raw twist.

Good to Know: In Sweden we eat kanelbulle all year round but the official day to celebrate this sweet bread is on October 4.
