Servings 8 servings


  • gluten-free flour 500 g, or wheat flour (type 405)
  • vegan butter, such as Earth Balance 50 g, or 60 ml vegetable oil
  • non-dairy milk (rice milk, oat milk or soy milk) 350 ml
  • 1 pack dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla pod
  • 1 tsp salt
  • non-dairy milk for brushing or yolk of one egg


  • First, warm the milk (do not boil it, just so that it steams slightly) and dissolve the yeast in it. 
  • Add the oil or margarine and the vanilla and mix everything together.
  • Transfer everything to a tall bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Knead a dough out of it. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the dough rise for about 1 hour. The dough must have twice the volume and form small bubbles. 
  • Knead the dough again. The batter is perfect when it comes off the edge of the bowl easily.
  • Now preheat the oven to 200 ° C (180 ° convection). 
  • Shape the braid: Divide the dough into 3 thirds and form three long strands. These should each have a length of approx. 40 cm. Now braid these three strands into a loose yeast plait.
  • Brush the braid with the beaten egg yolk before baking in the oven.
  • Bake in the middle in the preheated oven at 200 ° for about 25 minutes.
