Mother’s Day is already knocking on the door! Do you have something nice planned? I keep our fingers crossed that the weather holds. We stay home with the kids, in good weather both can play a lot in the garden, dig up the dirt. 😉

How did I get the idea to bake a nut bread?

Since we are expecting a visit on Sunday, I wanted to make cakes that do not directly ask: Is this vegan? And this nut braid was just great. I can only warmly recommend it, if you do not know what you should put on your table.

I also made a second cake. This delicious rhubarb – Aquafaba cake

My family  and friends love such cakes/ breads like this nut bread. Usually we do not bake this ourselves, we used to buy it at the bakery. Unfortunately there is no vegan nut breads available, so I grabbed one of my mom’s many baking books and found a delicious recipe in one of her old baking books. I quickly veganized this recipe and voila it came out while this delicious vegan nut braid.

  1. First, make the yeast dough by kneading all ingredients in a stand mixer with the dough hook to a smooth dough. Until it doesnt stick on the bowl, possibly add a little more flour or liquid. kneafor d about 5 minutes so that he is nice and soft and he can roll out later good.
  2. Cover the dough in a bowl for at least 1 hour. It is best to cover it with a damp cloth, so that the dough does not dry out.
  3. In the meantime prepare the filling. In addition you take the hazelnuts or you have bought directly ground hazelnuts. In a blender mix the plant drink with the marzipan paste until the marzipan is dissolved. Now pour to the ground hazelnuts and add the remaining ingredients. Now mix to a homogeneous mass. Is rather a firm consistency but spreadable. . Tastes the filling, maybe add some sugar.
  4. Roll out the dough into a rectangle. Slightly larger than a baking tray.
  5. Now distribute the filling on it.
  6. Roll up the dough from the short side. Now you cut the dough the long way in half and then again cut through both strands. Now you turn the strands with the open side up and weave first two strands together and then the two resulting strands.
  7. Put it all on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cover this for 30 minutes to 1 hour and let it rise again.
  8. The Vegan Nut Braid is baked at 180 ° C for about 30 minutes.
  9. Let the nut braid cool down and cover it with the frosting optional). You can also eat this just like that.
