One of my favourite IF NOT MY FAVOURITE baked good has to be Ole & Steen’s Cinnamon Social. I don’t know what it is that makes me obsess about it so. Is it the buttery brioche-like bread? The swirls of warming cinnamon. Perhaps the secret custard that gets baked in. Or is it the glaze on top? Who cares? Because I absolutely love it.
Since lockdown, I’ve been lost without my cinnamon social… so I decided to take on and try and make the Cinnamon Social myself at home. Now the Ole & Steen Cinnamon Social Recipe is not out there to google and find. So I had to put my detective hat on and do some research.
After a little bit of research, I found the proper danish name for the Cinnamon Social. Its called the Kanelstang or cinnamon twig. I guess because it looks like a log.
Most of the recipes were in danish… so I based my recipe on this one from Valsemollen.dk as the finished product look most like my beloved Ole & Steen Cinnamon Social. I’ve popped my version of Ole & Steen Cinnamon Social Recipe below.
