Baking time! Cinnamon Bun Day is here!

We hope you're enjoying the early autumn days as much as we are. With the days getting shorter and nights cooler, it's the perfect time to bake and cook hearty, healthy foods using all the amazing freshly harvested veg and fruits avaliable this time of year.

One of the most important dates in the Swedish food calendar is Kanelbullens dag - Cinnamon Bun Day - on the 4th of October. Did you know that in Sweden around 7 million (!) cinnamon buns will be eaten on the 4th of October. Here's a link if you'd like to learn more about the Swedish cinnamon bun.

On our website you'll find a couple of recipes for cinnamon buns. Here'e a recipe for the traditional kind, with a filling of lots of butter, cinnamon and sugar.

For those of you who like a bit of variety, here are some fun - and super tasty - cinnamon bun varieties to try, including Cloudberry & Almond Paste, Nut Dream and Swedish Pick n' Mix Buns - created by baking enthusiast Elisabeth Samuelsson.

One of our favourite food blogs is Nordic Kitchen Stories. Louise Hurst makes incredible food inspired by Sweden and the Nordics. Here's her delicious recipe for a Venison Casserolle.


Swedish forests are teaming with wild mushrooms this time of year, and the star of them all is the chanterelle. We have lots of mushrooms in stock from Get Fungi including Dried Porcini and Chanterelle. This recipe, also from Nordic Kitchen Stories, is for Whipped Chanterelle Butter which is amazing served on a thick slice of sourdough bread. You'll find freshly baked sourdough rye bread from Breadlady in our stores on Mondays and Thursdays.

Pop in to our stores for all the baking ingredients you need to make cinnamon buns, and while here you might want to check out the new award-winning jams från Lindhagens Delikatesser. The amazing jams are made from Swedish fruit and berries.

Enjoy the Autumn!
