A cinnamon bun (also known as sugar snail in Austria , Danish : Kanelsnegl ) is a sweet pastry that is widespread in Scandinavia and Central Europe , but also throughout North America (as a cinnamon roll or brioche à la cannelle ). It consists of a yeast dough that is coated with butter and sprinkled with a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Then the sheet of dough is rolled up. The roll is cut into finger-width strips. The pastry snails are baked on a tray or in a rack. Most cinnamon rolls are after baking with a frosting provided.
Cinnamon buns are also widespread in Scandinavia. The Swedish form of the cinnamon bun is called Kanelbulle and is one of the most famous and popular pastries in the country. Since 1999 October 4th has been celebrated in Sweden as " Cinnamon Roll Day " ( Kanelbullens dag ). In Denmark the cinnamon bun is called Kanelsnegl ( pronounced: kanelsnail ) and is part of the standard range of every bakery. Kanelsnegle are offered in different sizes and shapes, the most common are high Kanelsnegle made of soft dough with chocolate glaze or white glaze.
In 2013/2014 there were public discussions in Denmark about the maximum levels of coumarin in cinnamon set by the European Union , which can be harmful in large quantities. As a result, the cinnamon bun was recognized by the Danish food authorities (as already happened in Sweden ) as a traditional baked product , for which higher limit values may apply.
