This is the best kanelbullar recipe online, I think - these are the ones that have always gone down best for me. I managed to get the fresh yeast 'kron jast' from Waitrose, it really is amazing and you can freeze it to use in future. I didn't use a kitchen aid, just good old-fashioned hand-kneading. http://www.swedishfood.com/swedish-food-recipes-biscuits-cakes/104-cinnamon-buns

In the paragraph directly under the video it says "This week we make cinnamon rolls" the words cinnamon rolls are linked to the recipe. Just click those words to go to the recipe. Have fun & enjoy

It is NOT the same recipe, the video shows an enriched dough being made and left to prove, the recipe given is one for pastry not a yeast activated dough.

The video clearly shows the addition of yeast and a dough being formed which is allowed to prove. The result is an enriched dough, the link below the video takes you to a recipe that uses pastry and so is NOT the same as the video recipe. Where can I find the actual recipe shown in the video please?
