Easter is just around the corner. And so unexpectedly every year, I think!
But it should definitely not be a few delicious Easter treats. And whoever follows me diligently on Instagram knows that I actually made this recipe 4 times until it turned out the way I wanted it.
Quite often the bunnies got too big, looked like cats, or rather unrecognizable. They tasted delicious anyway, every time! Because nothing has changed about that. Just the composition in small parts.
Have you ever baked yeast rolls yourself? It is not so hard. Even vegan yeast dough is not rocket science. I used vegan butter (my favorite is Alsan Bio) and oat drink for the dough. Of course, you can take a plant-based drink of your choice. What you like.
These vegan yeast rolls are not as sweet as sugar. So if you like it a little sweeter, you are welcome to add a little more raw sugar to the dough. Just give it a try and you will quickly notice what and how you like it best.
Feel free to leave a comment. I am always very happy to receive your feedback. But first of all, have a lot of fun baking!
Super easy, vegan bunny buns. Perfect for any Easter baking. You'll learn how to make the perfect milk yeast dough. Click HERE for more ?.
- 500 g spelt flour type 630 – the brightest one
- 225 g oat milk or plant milk of your choice + a little more
- 100 g vegan butter e.g. Alsan organic
- 80 g brown sugar
- 1 PK fresh yeast 42 g
- 1 pinch of salt
Warm the plant milk slightly in a saucepan. It is best to use a kitchen thermometer for this. Because over 37℃ (98℉) of yeast bacteria die. If you don’t have a thermometer at hand, the milk shouldn’t be cold, just lukewarm. Trust your feelings.
Dissolve the sugar in the plant milk. If you have a cake machine that does the kneading for you, the yeast does not have to be dissolved here. If there is no machine at hand, stir the yeast into the plant-based drink-sugar mixture with the stove switched off.
Now knead all the ingredients together in a large bowl. This works best with a cake machine, a dough hook on the hand mixer, or with both hands and a lot of strength and patience.
The following applies here: The cake machine takes about 2:30 minutes. Knead 100 times by hand (as soon as a homogeneous dough is formed). The hand mixer with the dough hook is somewhere in between.
When the dough is well kneaded, place in a large bowl with a little flour and cover with a tea towel. Warning, yeast dough likes it cozy and warm. So it’s best to put it in a warm, not hot place. E.g. on the heater. And without a draft.
Let the dough rise there for 1-1.5 hours.
Preheat the oven to 200℃ (390℉) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Shape the dough into 16 small balls and place on the baking tray.
Brush each roll with a little plant-based milk.
Now cut small "ears" unsing a scissor.
And shape eyes with a toothpick. It is better to shape the eyes a little larger at the beginning so that they don't run when baking.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
Your buns are done! Enjoy!
You've made this recipe? YAY ?
Don't forget to tag me @therawberry over on instagram if you remake this one. I'd love to see your recreations. ?
The vegan bunny rolls are of course also super great on every children’s birthday, theme party or similar occasion. As long as we can celebrate occasions again soon. But I just going to go for that!
In any case, I wish you a lot of fun with it!
Thank you very much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day.
