Dough 1

  • 200 g sourdough
  • 10 g Yeast
  • 350 g Water
  • 50 g Dates
  • 400 g Spelt flour

Dough 2

  • 10 g Cardamom
  • 150 g Spelt Flour
  • 5 g Salt
  • 50 g Rapeseed oil


  • 200 g Dates
  • 50 g Coconut Oil
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla


  • Begin with the dates. Easiest and fastest way to remove the seed is with your fingers. Put the dates in a large bowl and mix with a hand blender (or in a blender), add the water.
  • Then add the sourdough. We usually use our own, it is so easy to do but if you are in a hurry and can not be bothered to wait five days, you can use pre-purchased sourdough.
  • Crumble in the yeast and stir evenly and finely.
  • Sprinkle in the spelt flour and mix thoroughly.
  • Time for dough 2. Stir in the cardamom and salt thoroughly, then add all the flour and work together.
  • Finish by pouring oil over the dough then work the dough.
  • Let it rise for 10 hours or more in the kitchen. Sadly, yes, we know! But it will be worth it tomorrow. Have patience.

The filling

  • It's easy peasy. Deseed the dates and mix all the ingredients to a nice filling worthy of a cinnamon bun.
