Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, tea and traditional foods
Cinnamon ( SIN-ə-mən) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, tea and traditional foods. The aroma and flavour of cinnamon derive from its essential oil and principal component, cinnamaldehyde, as well as numerous other constituents, including eugenol.
The term "cinnamon" also is used to describe its mid-brown colour. Cinnamon is the name for several species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice. Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be "true cinnamon", but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from related species, also referred to as "cassia". In 2016, Indonesia and China produced 75% of the world's supply of cinnamon.

I wasn't sure that this recipe would work. Cinnamon buns are made with enriched bread dough which normally contains an egg. I decided to take a risk and just leave it out. The butter is replaced with Tomor margarine. I have tried before to make croissants with other hard margarines but found...

Some sort of flavoring

I was wondering if anyone had ever tried it?

This recipe is based on traditional Swedish cinnamon buns. I did try making them using chocolate rather than cocoa powder but the result was not so pretty and where the melting chocolate oozed out, it burnt slightly. Cocoa is more foolproof and tastes just as chocolatey.
