Estonian Kringle-Cinnamon Bread


Week 3 of Great British Bake Off and the contestants were creating recipes with bread. Signature bakes was chocolate bread, technical challenge was the dampfnudel and the show stopper was a savoury plait. I had never heard of dampfnudel so was totally intrigued as to what it was. Sadly it was not something I wanted to recreate as the idea of steamed buns didn't really convince me.The show was really inspiring but at the same time I really felt sorry for some of the contestants as they struggled with their creations.


This week I decided to bake bread too, but I have not stuck to the brief of chocolate bread, instead I made Estonian Kringle, a plaited cinnamon bread . I wanted to make the bread eggless so after researching on line I got inspiration from a recipe for Cinnamon Rolls from Vegan Richa. The recipe uses aquafaba as an egg replacer. Aquafaba is the thick cooking  liquid created from cooked chickpeas. It is versatile in its uses as an egg replacer in many recipes such as meringues, mayonaisse, making mousse and baking.

In a jug add the warm water, aquafaba,sugar, maple syrup and the yeast.Mix together and leave aside for 20 minutes for the yeast to fully activate.3. Add the liquid to the flour in the bowl gradually until you get a nice soft pliable dough.4. Cover the dough and leave it to prove for 1 hour.5. while the dough is proving mix together the brown sugar 2 tablespoons of oil and the cinnamon and make a paste.6. Knock the air out of the bread dough and knead again.



7. Roll the dough out to a rectangle shape approx 12x14 inches.
8. Spread the cinnamon sugar paste onto the dough and roll the rectangle up tightly from the long side to form a swiss roll.9. Leaving about 1 inch from the top, carefully split the swiss roll in the centre using a shape knife.10. Twist the the braidscarefully so that the open cut edges showing the layers are on show. Once you have twisted the bread form a wreath shape and place it on a greased baking tray.Make sure the the edges are pressed together so that they don't open during baking.11.

  2. to be fair the cinnamon looks like chocolate once it is in the baked bread, and i like the flavour myself so i would happily eat a slice of this with some coffee. It looks lovely and impressed that it is eggless- and oh i have just heard Aquafaba on Extra Slice (I am watching on catch up) - so you are bang on trend lol! thank you for linking up xx

  6. This looks amazing! I'm not a fan of cinnamon but I'd probably make it with chocolate or something, haha. I'm loving Bake Off this year!

  7. I will definitely try this recipe, but (as I do eat eggs) is there a way I can incorporate eggs rather than the aquafaba? Also I don't cook with vegetable oils because they become carcinogenic when heated, so I only use saturated fats to cook/bake with (like butter and coconut oil). I think the eggs & butter would enrich this cake beautifully, so if you know how I could make it with those ingredients incorporated, that would be great. And I am also a big fan of Vegan Richa blog too! So many of my savoury dinner recipes and holiday meals come from her blog. I love your site...another great vegetarian site is always welcomed in my life.

    1. I am sure you can replace the oil with butter or coconut oil and also replace the aqua faba with eggs instead.
