Sourdough Joins the Mile-High Club

Happy Boxing Day!

Because Audrey, Jr demanded sacrifice, the sourdough starter ended up in the traditional Christmas morning breakfast: Mile-High Cinnamon Roll Bread.

Coincidentally, my friend from Colorado enjoys the Mile High Cinnamon Roll bread immensely (the capital Denver is the Mile-High city). He chooses to violate it with cream cheese while I like it with Earth Balance. Whatever floats your boat, man.

I like my green juice from a pilsner glass; some people prefer mason jars. All together, now…

The following recipe is an update to 23 December 2012’s Mile-High Cinnamon Roll Bread.
How sanguine this post was!

Sourdough Variation

1 cup fed teff sourdough starter

1 cup non-dairy milk (I used a mixture of unsweetened vanilla almond and coconut)

3 tablespoons coconut oil, solid


1/4 cup warm water

2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon organic granulated sugar


1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed


1 cup GF oat flour

1 cup King Arthur Flour Ancient Grains GF blend

1 1/2 cups sorghum flour

2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/4 cup coconut sugar


1/2 cup tapioca flour (AKA: tapioca starch) for rolling

Vanilla Water

3 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Cinnamon Sugar

1/3 cup coconut sugar

4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa

1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Procedure changes: deal with the sourdough first (feed your starter if necessary). Scald the nondairy milk first, then proceed with the other parts of dough assembly.

Let rise for 1 1/2 hours (first rise) or until doubled. 


Roll and fill 


and let rise, covered, again for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for 47-50 minutes. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes then remove to a rack to cool completely.


The sourdough especially takes a second rise well.


Killer cinnamon coconut sugar cocoa filling! Can you tell I’m slightly obsessed with this bread?


Air pockets! Wonderful!
