The Taste of Cinnamon

I’ve always been a big fan of Lisa’s interior design/lifestyle blog for the best part of three years and started using recipes from her food blog – Kitchen & Aroma – last year, when I made biscotti for the first time which, I have to say, was a huge success. As you can probably tell, I’m a fan! Plus, Lisa’s such a lovely person.

When it comes to cooking, there are few things I can resist more than the aroma of cinnamon wafting through the house. Back in the day when there was a bakery on every corner, I used to alternate between cinnamon buns and the great British Chelsea bun for my afternoon snack. Alas, those days are over so one Saturday morning, I decided to follow Lisa’s spelt cinnamon bun recipe et voilà, back to my childhood.  Spelt has a slightly nutty taste and paired with the cinnamon, let’s just say that two were not enough…

    These look delicious! I have had a craving for something baked and oh-so-cinnamonny for about a week now – these would certainly take care of that! Love it!

      I forgot that you lived in Denmark. You must be the original cinnamon girl. Scandinavians have the best taste in food and architecture.

      Give them a try at home – super easy!

      Enjoy the rest of your week!
