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.

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…

      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!

      Cinnamon is just one of those spices which have enough the most full of stomachs rumbling. Just the thought of it is making me hungry…
