  • Oven
  • Cake tin



  • 260 g flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • 36 g agave syrup
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 ½ tbsp applesauce (without added sugar)
  • 177 ml whole milk (warm)
  • 7 g yeast
  • 1 egg


  • 4 tbsp applesauce
  • 30 g brown sugar
  • 30 g honey
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 espresso shots


  • 60 g icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp coffee


  • Beat together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, yeast and salt.
  • Combine the milk and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until the butter has melted. Add the agave syrup, honey and applesauce.
  • Add the milk mixture and beaten egg to the flour and mix with a spatula until well blended.
  • Sprinkle your work surface with flour, turn the dough out and knead for 1 minute until you form a smooth ball. If the dough feels too sticky, add more flour if necessary, but don't knead the dough for too long. The dough should still be a little sticky.
  • Cover the dough loosely with a damp towel and let it rest for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 ° C. Grease an 8 or 9 inch baking dish with butter.
  • Lightly dust your work surface with flour. Roll out the dough into a rectangle.
  • Heat up the applesauce and espresso shots till the water of the espresso is evaporated. Beat the ingredients for the filling in a small bowl.
  • Brush the dough all over with the cinnamon-sugar coffee mixture.
  • Place the dough in a cake tin. Make sure the cinnamon-sugar coffee mixture is spread on the whole dough.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until pale golden brown and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, make the icing by mixing all the ingredients together. 


Vegan: leave out the egg and yeast. Replace the honey with agave syrup. 
Seasoning: does not apply.
