For the dough

  • 400 g wheat flour whole grain
  • 9 g dry/instant yeast
  • 50 g raw cane sugar
  • 400 ml water warm
  • 100 g wheat flour whole grain, additional (set aside)

For the filling

  • 270 ml soy or oat milk
  • 4 tbsp corn starch
  • 40 ml soy or oat milk additional; set aside
  • 3 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 2 tbsp maples syrup
  • 2 tbsp raw cane sugar

For the icing

  • 10 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp water warm
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice


For the dough

  • Take a bowl (one that you can put at a warm place) and put 400 g flour, yeast, and sugar in it. Mix very well
  • Pour warm water into the bowl and mix it really good into the flour mix. You can either use a cooking spoon or your hands. A cooking spoon does the job for this first step as the dough is rather liquid
  • Place a cloth on top of your bowl and put it at a warm place with about 25-36 °C (must not be warmer than 36 °C)
  • Let the dough rest until it rises (this ususally takes around 25 minutes)
  • When the dough rose, take it out of the bowl and place it on a kitchen surface (first spread some flour on the surface so the dough won't stick to it)
  • Now add 100 g wheat flour to your dough
  • Knead it really good into the dough with your hands

Prepare the filling

  • Prepare the filling while the dough is resting and rising
  • Pour 400 ml of milk into a casserole and bring it to a boil
  • Meanwhile, mix together cornstarch, cinnamon, maple syrup, sugar and 40 ml milk into a bowl
  • When the milk is boiling, slowly pour the starch mix into it while constantliy stirring with an eggbeater
  • Turn off the heat as soon as you whisked the starch mix into the milk
  • Stir a little longer and let the filling cool

Prepare the cinnamon rolls

  • Spread some more flour on the kitchen surface, take a rolling pin and roll out the dough into a rectangle which should be about 0,5-1 cm thick
  • Make sure there is enough flour on the kitchen surface, as the dough tends to stick easily on the surface when you start with the filling
  • Now spread the cooled filling onto the rolled out dough
  • Then carefully start rolling up the dough tightly
  • Carefully cut the roll into 4-5 cm wide sections (should be 12 pieces)
  • Prepare a squared baking pan and line it with baking paper. Place the cinnamon rolls in the baking pan
  • Bake the rolls in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 20 minutes

The icings

  • Mix together all of the ingredients
  • When the cinnamon rolls are cooled spread some icing on top of them
