For the Glaze


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, and salt. 
  • Then, add in the dairy free milk and maple syrup. 
  • Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined.  Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
    *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • Once doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface. 
  • Melt the butter in one dish.  In another bowl, add the coconut and cane sugar and cinnamon and combine together. 
    Grease a bread pan and set aside.
  • Pull off equal size pieces of dough - 1 to 2 tablespoon size depending on how big you want pieces to be (just pull, there's no wrong answer here). Roll into balls. 
  • Dip each piece in the butter, then the cinnamon sugar mixture and place in the bread pan.
  • Repeat with all dough balls, piling them on top of each other.  If any leftover butter, pour across the top. 
  • Cover pan. Heat oven to 150 degrees, turn off and place covered dish inside to rise for 30-45 minutes. It should be peeking a little over the top of the pan.
  • Remove from oven and let oven preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Once heated, place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • While baking, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and dairy free milk a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency. 
  • Remove from oven and top with homemade vegan glaze.  Serve warm.
