The Great British Bake-Off Vegan Style: Episode 3 – Bread Week

Bread Week Bread Week Bread Week!

Did I mention it’s BREAD WEEK?

I’m so excited about this episode…firstly because I love a bit of bread and secondly because cake week was pretty labour intensive because of all the components of each bake I had to find. I’m hoping that, because bread is USUALLY vegan, this week’s bakes should be a bit easier to find recipes for.

I’m doing this post live, as the episode goes out, so let’s see what they have in store for me…

Kim-Joy – Pistachio and Cardamom Tangzhong Chelsea Buns

I found: For the dough I found this Tangzhong Vegan Rolls recipe from Veganize Everything. Then for the filling I’d suggest using the filling part of this recipe from The Red Lychee (just swap out the butter for vegan butter)

Manon – Apricot, Cranberry and Marzipan Chai Chelsea Buns

I found: Marzipan and Mincemeat Chelsea Buns from The Veg Space

Rahul – Mango and Cranberry Chelsea Buns

I found: Cherry and Mango Cinnamon Rolls from One Green Planet (I have to admit I much preferred the idea of cherry to cranberry for these, sorry Rahul!)

Ruby – Gujarela (Gajar Halwa?) Chelsea Buns with Dates, Almonds and Raisins

I found: The World’s Easiest Sticky Buns from Minamilist Baker and Vegan Gajar Halwa from Vegan Richa.

Technical challenge – Non-Yeasted Garlic Naan Breads (YES!! LOVE A NAAN!)

I found: SO MANY! So here’s a couple because I couldn’t just do one:

Vegan Garlic Naan from Vegan Vigilante

Easy Vegan Naan from Minimalist Baker

two white garlics

Yes! I’ve loved finding all these recipes and I’m definitely going to give some Chelsea Buns of my own a go. Please please please tag me on Instagram or Facebook if you make any of the recipes above as I’d love to share them.
