Who doesn’t love a good pastry? Cinnamon swirls originate from Denmark/Sweden and are surprisingly simple and quick to make at home.

So how can you make these at home? Just follow these three easy steps and you can make these delicious cinnamon swirls at home too!

Step 1: Make the cinnamon swirl filling


  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 50g sugar
  • 3-4 heaped teaspoons cinnamon powder (flavour to taste)

How to:

  1. Mix the margarine, sugar and cinnamon powder in a bowl until it is a smooth paste.

Step 2: Make the cinnamon swirls


  • 1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry

How To:

  1. Firstly, line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Then, roll out the ready made puff pastry on a flat surface.
  3. Next, spread the cinnamon filling evenly on the pastry ensuring approximately 1cm is left free at each edge.
  4. Then, roll the pasty from the horizontal side pressing lightly at each roll.
  5. Next, cut the pastry into approximately  2cm blocks using a sharp knife.
  6. Finally, place the cinnamon swirls in a baking tray ensuring there is a gap between the pastries.

This will make approximately 9 cinnamon swirls.

Step 3: Bake the cinnamon swirls

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and bake the cinnamon swirls for 18 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and puffy.

And there you have it, delicious homemade cinnamon swirls to enjoy!
