stuten (sweet yeast bread) This sweet, soft and fluffy bread is very popular in Northern Germany. It’s often homemade and served on Sundays.

It’s best served on the day it is baked.But you can slice and freeze this bread and reheat it in a toaster. Recipe Stuten (Sweet Yeast Bread)

160 ml (2/3 cup) soy milk
40 g (3 tablespoons) refined coconut oil
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
280 g (2 1/3 cups) all purpose flour
50 g (1/4 cup) sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine soy milk and coconut oil in a small saucepot and warm gently, until the coconut oil has melted. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in yeast. Mix flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add liquid ingredients and use a hand-held mixer with a dough hook or a stand mixer to knead the dough. Knead for about 5-6 minutes. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size. This should take 45-60 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Grease a small loaf pan (20 x 10 cm or 8 x 4 inch) and set aside. Olace the dough on a lightly floured surface and shape into a log. Place in the pan brush with oil. Cover with a damp kitchen towel. Let rise for 45-60 minutes, or until doubled in size. Slash with a sharp knife and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the bottom of the bread sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing.

  2. Mihl, you’re the bread girl!
    I would love to try childhood bread
    was schneck..I love you know this in Germany?
    Is also a sweet bread.

  3. I’ve been thinking about sweet breads a lot lately and that I “can’t have” things like Stuten in the bakery. I love these kind of breads (with raisins :)). Thanks for the recipe. Hope I can try it out tomorrow!

  4. I was going to make pita bread today, but then I saw this and had to make it.

    Mine turned out soft with a crunchy crust and just the slightest sweetness. I wouldn’t really describe it as “sweet.” It was so very good with margarine and a big glob of blackberry jam.

  5. Mmm…I love bread! And I especially love sweet bread! Now that it’s getting cold again, I’m getting the urge to make breads! This one is going on the list…thanks Mihl! :)

  6. Wow! I’m normally not big on sweet breads at all, but this sounds really good. It looks so soft and fluffy!
    Your bread always seems to come out perfect, it looks so pretty on top.

  7. that looks incredibly soft and fluffy… it’s a good thing i’m making rolls tonight and tomorrow. I’ll have to try this after the holiday. thanks

  8. This sounds a lot like the traditional Czech bread my mother has always made (a recipe passed down for generations). My mother has made it for me using non-dairy milk and no eggs but it was not quite right. I thing I may try your bread (with golden raisins and almonds) to see if it comes closer. Thanks, as always, for your amazing bread inspiration!

  9. This sweet bread looks amazing–it’s definitely on my to-do list. It also sounds like the kind of bread my grandmother made (I come from a very German baking family). Yeasted sweet breads are just so comforting!

  10. Are you directly related to Jesus? Because you just saved my soul!!!! I cannot WAIT to sink my teeth into this bread again!!!
