Mihl's Swirly Cinnamon Bread

This is what it looked like outside when I woke up today.  It had been snowing all night, and since there's no ploughing or sanding here on weekends the whole village is covered in snow. Beautiful, isn't it? Unfortunately, it has been incredibly windy all day so being outside was kind of hell on earth so I stayed inside most of the time instead. And what's better do to then than baking? Yesterday, Mihl on seitan is my motor wrote about a cinnamon bread with no less than 6 swirls in it! I knew I had to make it. You'll find the recipe here!

The dough.

Flattened and spread with the filling.

6 rolls of goodness.

Out of the oven. I clearly have some things to learn when it comes to assembling, cause the top roll just fell off.

It tasted almost like cinnamon rolls, do I have to say that's a good thing?
It cleared up for about 5 minutes in time for sunset, then the weather went back to Mordor-style again.


  1. It looks beautiful where you live - I'm envious of the snow and sunsets! Cinnamon roll bread is perfect for a cold winter day.

  2. oh my gosh Fanny, the bread! the snow! the birds! the swirls! what a wonderful post. I love your blog so much.

  3. That bread is so cute with the swirls- love the scrolling pics too!

  4. I wouldn't even have notice one swirl was missing, had you not pointed it out! :) And if that's what 'mordor' looks like, then it doesn't look too bad. Not bad at all!

  5. Hey thanks you are so sweet:)
    Love your photos! I'm so gonna bake this!

  6. Wow, I want to come and visit you! It looks so beautiful with the grass on the house roofs. I know I am getting all clichee-y and stereotype-y now but it reminded me of one Pippi Longstockings episode (the TV programme), where they are all out in the snow. I realize you are not in Sweden :) but I miss the Scandinavian winter.
    Your bread came out so great! I am sorry, I had to laugh about the top swirl falling off. It still looks amazing. Thank you for trying it out.

  7. I know I know, it's beautiful here, but it's not pleasant to be outside, since the wind kills you and the snow is super hard and comes flying like needles in the air.

    Mihl; yeah, it was kind of funny and I did see it coming. Martin was happy about it though and just grabbed it with one hand and ate it straight up.

  8. Beautiful! Both the snowy scenery and the bread!

  9. That bread looks amazing! I miss snow. People here freak out when it snows an inch, so I'm looking forward to visiting family in New England this winter. :)
