Easy Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Bread

When I was a little girl I was OBSESSED with cinnamon sugar anything. I would put cinnamon sugar in my oats, on my bread and even on my ice cream.

I told you I was obsessed. Now when the start of the pandemic hit I was really missing home and went back to my cinnamon sugar roots.

Also because it was pandemic, like everyone else I just started making crazy amounts of bread.

So for my 2nd youtube video I thought I would make … A Braided Cinnamon Sugar bread!

Bread dough

2.5 tsp dry yeast
1/3 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm non-dairy milk
1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
2 tbsp ground golden flax seeds
4 tbsp water
2 3/4 cup bread flour
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 tsp salt
Icing sugar for dusting

Buttery Cinnamon filling

1/2 cup vegan butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp non-dairy milk to coat the bread for baking

You can follow along with me step by step through my YouTube video to make this amazingly epic bread!

A breakdown of the basic steps – For More detail and clarification please check out the YouTube video <3

  1. Prepare the flax egg by mixing 2 tbsp flax seeds with 4 tbsp water.
  2. Activate the yeast, combine yeast, a sprinkle of sugar and warm water. Let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
  3. Once frothy add in sugars, warm milk and melted butter. Combine.
  4. Finally, add in the flour and the salt. Knead the dough for 10 minutes.
  5. Allow dough to rest for 1 hour, it should double in size.
  6. While the dough is resting prepare cinnamon sugar spread by combing the vegan butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Once the dough has risen, divide it into 6 equal parts.
  8. Now it is time to get ready for the braid. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough balls one at a time. Brush with cinnamon sugar filling then roll into a rope. Repeated with the other 5 dough balls.
  9. When you have 6 ropes, braid the bread with the over 2, under 1 over 2 pattern.
  10. Place Dough in Pan and allow to proof for one hour, prior to baking.
  11. Glaze with a non-dairy milk and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.
  12. ENJOY
