Messy Cinnamon Buns (Vegan)

There is nothing better than freshly baked breads and specially if there is cinnamon in there. I love baking breads the most since I have got myself to be familiar with the nuances of baking different kinds of VEGAN BREADS, there is something very satisfying about them, when the breads are done, the smell of bread in your whole house, and knowing the breads are absolutely vegan and cruelty free is the biggest joy. This is the simplest recipe I promise, no matter how lengthy it looks, just be patient and keep at it.

The ingredient run-down is given below, which has the substitutes and the steps made easier, still if you get stuck feel free to drop me a message on this or DM me on Instagram for the quickest reply, Here's a link to my Instagram account, also do follow me if you aren't already!

Ingredients run down :

  • Flour : I have used regular all purpose flour (maida) feel free to use Bread flour

  • Yeast : I have used instant dried yeast, if you’re using dried yeast then add an extra 1/2 tsp of it

  • Almond Milk : You can use any milk of your choice (dairy if not vegan), oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk

  • Sugar - You can use regular white sugar overall, though I have used a mix of brown sugar and white sugar

  • Vegan Butter - You basically need a fat source to keep the bread moist, you can use any oil or any vegan butter.
