5 minute microwave cinnamonbun | Vegan

Ever just want a cinnamonbun but don’t want to have to spend 2 hours making a huge batch …. Or don’t like or want the storebought ones….? Well now I have solved that problem. A 5 minute microwave cinnnamonbun.


Watch when I make this mugcake, HERE.

I know you may be thinking…. Is it actually good…? And the answer is yes… it is really good. However the key is to not overheat it in the microwave, because then there is a risk that the bun turns out dry and far from tasty. So better to heat 1 minute and if it needs to be baked longer, do it in 10 second intervals!

And of course, make sure you use a cup/form that can be microwaved in high heat….. don’t want your cup or form to break!!!

Just like a normal cinnamonbun, you have the dough then the cinnamon filling and ontop an icing… which is optional but does add a little extra ontop!

This is not a mugcake and maybe not a daily snack you should be consuming… but when those cinnamon cravings hit…. Make one of these!!!

For the dough:

6tbsp flour, around 50g  & more for when “rolling” the dough

½-1tbsp brown sugar

1/2tsp cinnamon

3/4tsp baking power

3,5tbsp plantbased milk

For the cinnamon filling:

2tbsp vegan margarine, at room temperature.

2tbsp brown sugar

1-2tsp cinnamon

For the icing:

2tbsp powdered sugar

1-2tsp plantbased milk


How to:

In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Then pour in the plantbased milk and mix to form a dough. If necessary, add either more mylk or flour depending on the texture of your dough.

Form into a rectangle, or long “sausage” shape which you then flatten.

In another bowl mix together the vegan margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix until combined.

Spread the margarine mix onto the dough and then roll into a cinnamon bun.

Place in a microwaveable form or cup. Bake in the micrwaove on max heat for MAX 1 minute. If necessary, bake for another 10 seconds, but avoid overbaking as it will result in a dry cinnamonbun.

While the cinnamonbun is in the microwave, mixtogether the powdered sugar and plantbased milk. Mix to form the icing sugar.

Once the cinnamon bun is baked, place on a plate,cover with the icing sugar and eat when warm!!

And there you have your cinnamon bun in 5 minutes, warm and freshly baked!!

(Note, I would not recommend making these in advance or letting them stand too long as they can easily dry out. So make when you want one and eat when freshly baked!)
