Cinnamon buns for cold summer days

Our summer is seemingly having a break, so we are having a light food break, bringing back the christmas flavours.
These delicious hot cinnamon buns are not even threatening the summer body, since they are made with wholemeal spelt and very little sugar.


Ingredients for the dough:

  • 50g of margarine
  • 300ml of warm plant-milk (I used oat milk)
  • 500g of flour (I used wholemeal spelt flour)
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • some vanilla extract
  • one package of dry yeast

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 80g of brown sugar
  • 80g or more of margarine
  • 2 tbsp or as much as you like of cinnamon


Mix the flour, sugar, yeast and vanilla extract, slowly pour in the milk while mixing with your mixer or food processor, mix in the margarine and continue to go by hand if the dough gets too thick.
Now let it go on a warm place for about 30 mins.

In the meantime you may melt the margarine for the filling and pour the sugar and cinnamon in (they mixture should just be melted, so no boiling)

Divide the dough into two to three balls and roll one of them into a nice square. Now spread some of the mixture on the square, roll it up from one side, until you have a nice dough-sausage and cut them into buns of approx. 2 cm thickness, continue with the rest of your dough like that. Place them next to each other on a baking tray or in a baking bowl. I put them tight next to each other, because I liked the fact, that you can pull them apart. If you are keen, you can pour some of the mixture over all the buns, to make them sweeter.

Now put them in the oven at 180-200°C and let bake for 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy them hot. (:
