Sweet Potato Cinnamon Roll Pie Recipe

Sweet Potato Cinnamon roll pie is obviously different than just plain cinnamon rolls. But I swear you wouldn’t realize how great of a combination it is. I think it is the mix of cinnamon with the taste of sweet potato that does it for me. You will have to try this delicious recipe and let me know what you think.

Interesting Facts about Cinnamon Rolls

  1. The origin of the cinnamon bun is a debated topic. The Swedes say its origin was in Sweeden in the 1920s. Although normally they do not shy away from any debates. But in this instance, it does not matter where it is coming from. They love them too much.
  2. The day of the cinnamon bun has been celebrated since back in 1999. But the bun itself was not really famous until the 1950s.
  3. The Nordic cinnamon bun is normally made with a bit of ground cardamom in the dough. This makes it different from other cinnamon buns, like the sticky sweet buns you often see in the United States.
  4. An original cinnamon bun (a Scandinavian one) does not have icing on the top. In Norway, a sprinkle of regular granulated sugar – in Sweden, those lovely big-ish sugar crystals are called Pearl Sugar.
  5. A total of 68 million Americans ate cinnamon rolls in 2019.
  6. There are various significant cinnamon bun competitions held every year in Norway (and highly likely elsewhere in Scandinavia). Readers of the local newspaper pick their favorites and vote for the best cinnamon bun. It is distinguished and competitive and taken very, very seriously.
  7. This same place calls its cinnamon buns as Skillingsboller – ‘schilling buns’, which because of the cost of one back then.
  8. Denmark often called them ‘cinnamon snails’ – Kanelsnegl’, and in Finland, ‘slapped ear’ – Korvapuusti. Possibly because if someone did slap your ear, a cinnamon bun would be a suitable treatment to help you feel better in your pain and upset. Or possibly that is what your ear looked like once it had been slapped. Who knows?
  9. Cinnamon buns are made in many different ways. You can swirl them and pop them into a little paper holder to keep all the buttery, cinnamon sugary stickiness. Or do a simple swirl and bake, cut side up, or do a thinner wheel baked cut sides on the underneath. They are all loved.
  10. It is a perfect bun, the cinnamon persuasion. It doesn’t need to be messed with. Unless you enjoy a sweet orange bun, those have their own story.
  11. There are two types of cinnamon; Ceylon and Cassia. Ceylon is also referred to as sweet cinnamon – or true cinnamon and is the most popular one. One is a tad more costly than the other, but the taste is miles better. Get it if you can – otherwise, your buns won’t be as good.
  12. Cinnamon also contains a material named coumarin – which can cause liver damage if consumed in big amounts. The Scandinavian countries regularly enjoyed this fact, purely so they can put a scare cinnamon headline out, such as; ‘How to avoid cinnamon-poisoning.’ ‘Be careful with cinnamon.’
  13. ‘Cinnamon buns can damage your liver’ But don’t worry – you would have to consume about 10 cinnamon buns each day for an extra-long period of time to notice anything.
  14. Scientifically proven that it is impossible to resist a fresh cinnamon bun still warm from the oven. Try it. Sprinkle with almonds for a nutty taste..mmmm!
