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
Divide your sweet dough into 4 pieces.
Roll the pieces in to squares.
Spread vegan butter, cinnamon and caster sugar on to the squares.
Make the 4 squares in to rolls.
Cut each one of the rolls down along the middle with a sharp knife.
Place the bottom of a round baking tray under a piece of parchment paper.
Place the halved rolls in the pattern on the left.
Tuck the rolls together and weave them once more into the pattern you see on the left.
Weave them together one last time like the pattern on the left.
Tuck in the remaining bits of bread underneath the rest of the dough and make sure the bread fits the baking tray.
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.
Serve with a nice cup of tea or coffee and enjoy!
