Vegan Swedish Cinnamon Buns (kanelbullar)

As opposed to US American cinnamon rolls, Kanelbullar are not as gooey and never have icing on top. Instead, these buns are made with lots of cinnamon and cardamom, both in the dough and the filling, and sprinkled with pearl sugar or sliced almonds.

Kanelbullar can be eaten for breakfast, yet it is more associated with fika — a Swedish tradition that more or less translates to coffee break.

Swedes love kanelbullar so much that they have a special day called “Kanelbullens dag” or cinnamon bun day on October 4th.

Instructions
 

  • Crumble the fresh yeast into a small bowl. Add sugar and warm milk (use a food thermometer!) and mash with a fork to dissolve the yeast completely. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • In a food processor, using the dough function, combine flours, applesauce, butter, salt, ground cardamom, and the yeast mixture. Process until a dough ball has formed. It should be smooth and soft. Transfer to a lightly oiled large bowl, covered with a cloth, and let rise in a warm and dark place for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, place the butter in a small bowl and melt in the microwave. Stir in the vanilla extract.

  • Knead the dough lightly on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 12×16 inch rectangle. Spread the melted butter and vanilla extract and sprinkle the raw sugar, Ceylon cinnamon powder, and freshly ground cardamom over the dough.

  • Tightly roll the dough up, starting from the 12-inch side, sealing the edges. Cut into 1-inch sections using a serrated knife. You should get 14 pieces.

  • Place the buns on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Place it in the oven (turned off). Boil some water and pour in a measuring jug. Place in the oven with the baking tray, to add steam that will help the cinnamon buns rise. Keep the oven closed for 1 hour until very puffy looking. Take the tray and jug out of the oven and cover the tray with a cloth. Preheat the oven to 375ºF/190ºC.

Notes

  • Best eaten fresh, but leftovers will keep in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 1 day. We recommend freezing any leftovers the same day you made them and thaw whenever you want to eat them. Simply, pop in the oven directly from the freezer and bake for a few minutes until nice and warm. They will taste like freshly baked!
