Cinnamon Star Bread

I just had to make another one of these beauties! This time I used my regular sweet yeast dough and filled it with LOTS of vegan butter, cinnamon and sugar. Below you can find a step by step guide how to make this star. Happy baking, friends!

75 g vegan butter
2,5 dl plantbased milk
15 g fresh yeast
0,5 dl caster sugar or syrup
0,5 tsp salt
7-8 dl plain flour (~430 g)

100 g soft vegan butter
1-2 tbsp cinnamon
1 dl caster sugar

Let the vegan butter soften in room temperature or a few seconds in the microwave. Dissolve the yeast in cold milk. Add the soft butter, sugar and salt. Next, add flour and work until the dough is shiny and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl. Leave to rise in the fridge overnight or a couple of hours in room temperature.

Take the dough out and let it rest in room temperature at least an hour before baking.

Combine the ingredients for the filling. Follow the instructions below on how to make the star bread. (The dough in the photos are from my saffron star bread post – hence the yellow dough.)

Leave to rise another hour. Bake at 225 C for 20-25 minutes. Brush with sugar dissolved in hot water while still hot. Leave to cool before serving.

Step by Step

Step 1

Use the yeast dough.

8-9 dl flour makes one Star Bread.

Step 2

Divide the dough into 4 pieces.

Roll one of the pieces out into a circle.

Cover the circle with the filling.

Step 3

Repeat this until you have 4 layers of dough with filling in between them.

Step 4

Place a cup in the middle of your dough.

Use a sharp knife to cut your dough into 16 wedges.

Step 5

Take 2 of the wedges and twist them twice in opposite directions of eachother and combine the remaining parts at the ends.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 until you’ve made a star and connected all the ends.

Bake at 225 C for 15 minutes.

Brush with dissolved sugar.

Step 7

Enjoy your Star Bread with a nice cup of tea.
