Cinnamon swirls baked with cream


Cinnamon swirls baked with cream – A recipe for extra spongy and gooey cinnamon swirls baked with cream.

The dough itself is made without eggs, so the recipe can be made in a vegan version by using vegan butter and vegan cream. Instead of the cream cheese frosting, the swirls can be topped with icing. Enjoy!

Snegle for 8-10 persons
Preperation 1 t. 30 min. / Cooking 1 t. / Total 2 t. 30 min.


50 g yeast

500 ml milk, lukewarm

150 g sugar

1 large tsp. cardamom

1 tsp. salt

150 g butter, softened

Ca. 800 g all-purpose flour


250 g butter, room temperature

3-4 tbsp. ground cinnamon

75 g sugar

135 g brown sugar

2 tbsp. potato flour

Cream cheese frosting

150 g butter, room temperature

200 ml confectioner’s sugar

200 g cream cheese, room temperature


200 ml cream



Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk in a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, cardamom, salt, and about half of the flour. Knead the dough with the dough hook. Add the butter. Add more flour and knead the dough until it releases from the sides of the bowl and becomes shiny and stretchy. It will take 5-10 minutes, depending on how powerful your mixer is. Cover the dough with a damp dish towel and let it rise in the bowl for 1 hour.


Mix all the ingredients well with a fork and set the filling aside until ready to use.

Cream cheese frosting

Whisk the ingredients together into an even frosting.

How to assemble the swirls

Roll out the dough to a square of 60×45 cm on a floured surface. Spread the filling on the dough and roll the dough into a “sausage.” Cut a total of 16 swirls and put them in a dish or roasting pan (my dish is 28×35 cm). I used a dish that didn’t need baking paper, but feel free to line it with baking paper. Let the swirls rest for 20 min.

Heat the oven to 200 C convection.

Pour the cream over the swirls and bake them for 20-25 min. Allow the swirls to cool and spread the frosting on them. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
