Sweet braided yeast bread with carrots and cinnamon

Hallo everybody,

not much to say: This was delicious! Try it out - Tell me that it was awesome ;)
You can also make a vegan version, just use margarine instead of butter and a flax egg (1 tsp flax meal + 3 tsp water)

Here comes the recipe:


2 carrots
150 ml milk of your choice
40 gr butter or margarine
2 tsp Coconut Oil
1 Package dry yeast
50 gr brown sugar
1 egg yolk (or a "flaxseed egg")
420 gr flour
1 tsp corn starch

3 tsp soft butter (or margarine)
5 tsp cinnamon
5 tsp brown sugar


Peel the carrots and cut them into little pieces. Bring water to boil and cook the carrots until they´re very soft. Remove them from water, let them cool down und puree them.
Heat the milk with the butter in a pan until the butter is melted. Remove it from heating and add the oil. Let it cool down until it´s lukewarm. 
Sprinkle it with the yeast and wait for 5 minutes.
Combine the sugar, the egg yolk and 250gr of the flour, the carrot puree with the "yeast milk". Combine it well, then add the rest of the flour and the corn starch. Knead together for at least 5 to 10 minutes until it´s smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with tea towel and leave 60 - 90 minutes to rise.
Afterwards punch the dough down and knead it well, roll it out in a square form. Butter the dough and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll the dough up. Now cut the "dough roll" in the middle and braid the two ends. Leave for rising another 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven and bake at 175C° for 30 minutes.

Enjoy <3
