The Irish Cinnabun - Oh God, this is Good.
Updated: Jan 20
Today I bring you the Irish Cinnabun, the best one to date.
The Swedes have blessed the world with many gifts over time. These being Abba, Spotify, H&M, Minecraft, Ibrahimovic, Volvo, and a modern society that works. But above all, they gave us the Kanelbulle (Cinnamon Bun), which has its national day on October 4th. But like coffee, there was a way the cinnamon bun could be improved. And by improved, I mean "a little more Irish."
You can now skip that trip to Ikea and have yourself some home-made Irish Cinnabuns drizzled in a Black Bush Caramel Sauce. You will not be disappointed.
