  • ½ cup milk or plant based milk
  • 1 tsp instant dry yeast

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 1 ¾ cup Queen Street Bakery 1-for-1 Superfood Baking Flour

  1. To make the dough, dissolve yeast with milk in a large bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well using the paddle attachment in an electric stand mixer. The consistency is similar to a thick cookie batter. Cover the bowl with a wet towel and let rise for 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the filling by blending all ingredients together. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. Place the dough onto a lightly floured parchment and place another sheet of parchment paper on top before rolling the out to a rectangle sheet of roughly 1/2″ thick.
  4. Spread the filling onto the dough evenly, leaving 1/2″ bare on all edges, and roll the dough from the long end into a log shape Cut the log into 16 rolls (roughly 1″ thick) and place the rolls into a 9″ square pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. Drizzle an icing sugar glaze for garnish
