easy pumpkin cinnamon buns.

An easy cinnamon bun recipe which is perfect for the pumpkin season. One of my favourite things about Autumn is the excuse for all things hygge. Pronounced hoo-gah, hygge is the concept of cosiness, hailing from Denmark and Norway. Friends, family, fun and loved ones around doing things that you love. Although it's an all year round thing, it perfectly ties in with the Autumn and Winter want to curl up with a blanket with a cuppa and candles.

I'm actually off to Copenhagen for my 30th next week. But for now, I thought I'd satisfy my appetite for all things hygge and Scandi with this Autumn inspired pumpkin cinnamon bun recipe.
