Cinnamon Weave Bread

Did I mention I’m in a baking craze? There are simply too many lovely creations to try. I saw this beautiful weave bread from @stemsandforks on Pinterest and just had to make one myself.

I used my usual sweet yeast dough (the recipe is in my Rhubarb rolls post), and filled it with traditional Swedish cinnamon bun filling. You’ll find a step by step visual guide below on how to weave it. It’s a lot easier than it looks, I promise you. Happy baking!

Step by Step

Step 1

Divide your sweet dough into 4 pieces.

Roll the pieces in to squares.

Spread vegan butter, cinnamon and caster sugar on to the squares.

Step 2

Make the 4 squares in to rolls.

Cut each one of the rolls down along the middle with a sharp knife.

Step 3

Place the bottom of a round baking tray under a piece of parchment paper.

Place the halved rolls in the pattern on the left.

Step 4

Tuck the rolls together and weave them once more into the pattern you see on the left.

Step 5

Weave them together one last time like the pattern on the left.

Step 6

Tuck in the remaining bits of bread underneath the rest of the dough and make sure the bread fits the baking tray.

Step 7

Place the removable part of the baking tray around the bread and parchment paper, but let it stay loosened.

Bake at 225 C for 25-30 minutes, until golden and fully baked through.

Step 8

Serve with a nice cup of tea or coffee and enjoy!
