A few days back, when our dear (vegan) friend Hannelore came to our house, we wanted to try a new recipe. In MBTI memes, INFP’s are often compared to cinnamon buns so I always wanted to make them one day. This was the perfect opportunity. If you have seen my instagram story from that day, you know we first really messed it up but that they turned out to be super delicious and yummy. Let’s go!
what you’ll need
- 3/4 cup of non-dairy mylk (i use oatly)
- 2 1/4 tsp yeast
- 1,5 cup of buckwheat flour & 1,5 cup of rice flour (or you can just use 3 cups of pastry flour)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of sugar (and 4 tbsp for later)
- 5 tbsp applesauce
- raisins (if you want)
how to make it
- Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F.
- In a small bowl, mix the mylk and the yeast. Let sit while you prepare the other mixture.
- In a bigger bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar.
- Add the mylk mixture and the applesauce.
- Knead until kinda elastic and NOT TOO STICKY (this is where we went wrong haha).
- On a baking paper, spread flour (if you don’t do this, the dough will stick to the paper and you’ll mess up like we did).
- Spread the dough into a square.
- In a small bowl, make a mixture of 4 tbsp of sugar, as much raisins as you want and a pinch of cinnamon.
- Put this in the square, but leave some space next to the borders.
- Roll it up, and cut the long roll that has been formed into buns.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until crunchy and soft.
- While it’s baking, mix some mylk with sugar and some flour if it’s too thin. (That’s your icing)
- Pour the icing over the buns and devour 🙂
