A cinnamon roll (also cinnamon bun, cinnamon swirl, cinnamon Danish, and cinnamon snail) is a sweet roll served commonly in Northern Europe and North America. In Denmark, it is the most common form of wienerbrød ('Vienna Bread') and is known as Kanelsnegl; 'cinnamon snail'. In North America, its common use is as breakfast or dessert. Its main ingredients are flour, cinnamon, sugar, and butter, which provide a robust and sweet flavor. In some places, it is eaten as a breakfast food and is served with cream cheese or icing.
