What are the ingredients for vegan brioche dough?
My brioche recipe is essentially a buttery 'crazy dough'! If you aren't familiar with this term, it's basically a master dough recipe which can be turned into endless variations of breads, rolls etc (as explained by Gemma).
Compared to crazy dough, my brioche recipe is more buttery, slightly more sweet and will melt in your mouth. It's an easy vegan bread recipe using:
- Plain or all-purpose flour
- Vegan butter or margarine
- Cane or coconut sugar
- Plant-based milk
- Active dried yeast
Depending on how you want to use the dough, you may also want to add:
- Chocolate chips
- Vanilla extract
Roll up that vegan brioche dough to make CINNAMON ROLLS!
Many good vegan cinnamon roll recipes use enriched yeast dough (dough with butter) aka brioche dough as the base. Here are my favourite vegan cinnamon roll recipes:

Vegan babka or twist bread
Vegan brioche dough can also be covered in chocolate or cinnamon and twisted into a beautiful babka, a pastry with Jewish origins! It's most popular in Eastern Europe, Israel and the USA.
However, you can make it at home with a few simple ingredients from your local supermarket.
