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!
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
- Prepare the flax egg by mixing 2 tbsp flax seeds with 4 tbsp water.
- Activate the yeast, combine yeast, a sprinkle of sugar and warm water. Let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
- Once frothy add in sugars, warm milk and melted butter. Combine.
- Finally, add in the flour and the salt. Knead the dough for 10 minutes.
- Allow dough to rest for 1 hour, it should double in size.
- While the dough is resting prepare cinnamon sugar spread by combing the vegan butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Once the dough has risen, divide it into 6 equal parts.
- 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.
- When you have 6 ropes, braid the bread with the over 2, under 1 over 2 pattern.
- Place Dough in Pan and allow to proof for one hour, prior to baking.
- Glaze with a non-dairy milk and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.
