Preparation steps


Halve the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the pulp with a knife. Heat 1 cup of milk alternative and dissolve butter in it. Dissolve yeast in the lukewarm liquid. Then mix 1 cup each of the wholemeal spelt flour, spelt flour, coconut blossom sugar, vanilla pulp, salt, cinnamon and lemon peel. Knead to a smooth dough and cover and leave to rise for 60 minutes in a warm place.


On a floured work surface, divide the dough into 3 equally sized pieces and roll into strands of about 40 cm in length.


Press the 3 rolls together at one end and braid a plait. Place the plait on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and leave to rise covered for a further 20 minutes. Then brush with the remaining plant milk and sprinkle with almond flakes. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C/ 350°F (convection 160 °C/ 325°F) for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
