Vegan sweet buns with blueberry jam

Fresh soft sweet buns are a perfect Sunday breakfast, that will fill your house with an amazing smell.

Sweet buns, made by this recipe, are extremely soft, fluffy and absolutely delicious. Yeast dough is really soft, because it has to rise multiple times and this makes it very fluffy and rich blueberry filling in the middle gives the buns an outstanding taste. If you sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, you get mouth watering dessert or even breakfast, which goes great with some cup of hot cocoa or coffee.

We almost always eat oats or smoothies for breakfast, but sometimes we treat ourself and our family on weekends with these delicious homemade buns! They are the best fresh from the oven, when they are still warm and super soft. You simply can’t resist them! They are always gone in minutes, because everybody in our family loves them.


Preparation is really simple, all you need are 7 simple ingredients and jam of your choice. We really love to use blueberry or apricot jam, but you can use your prefered one. It’s best if it’s really thick, so it won’t leak out of the buns, when they are baking. You can also fill buns with some delicious vegan chocolate spread or even vanilla cream, choice is completely yours!

Yeast and dough have to rise, so it takes some time to make these buns, but the wait is totally worth it! They are the best served fresh from the oven, because they are the softest and fluffiest then, but you can also eat them later or even the next day.
