M:lk® Choc Orange Buns

For National Chocolate Week 2022, we've teamed up with the amazing vegan cafe Vutie Beets, who have created these epic M:lk® Choc Orange Buns for the festive season using our zesty bars.

If you’re a lover of cinnamon buns and T***y’s Choc Orange, then you will LOVE these. The M:lk® Choc Orange Buns are so soft and chewy on the inside…You wouldn’t even know they are plant-based!

M:lk® Choc Orange Buns



  • 375ml warm oat milk
  • 4 tsp yeast
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground flax in 6 tbsp water
  • 120g melted vegan butter
  • 1050g strong white bread flour
  • ¾ tsp salt



  1. Rub a 12” x 16” roasting tray with vegan butter and line with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine the warm oat milk, melted butter and sugar. The mixture should be just warm. Make sure it’s not too hot or it will kill the yeast.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the flour and yeast and pour over the warm milk mixture. Combine well, cover with a tea towel and set aside for at least an hour.
  4. Preheat your oven to 170C. After an hour your dough should have at least doubled in size.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and roll into a large rectangle. The dough should be just over 1cm thick.
  6. Spread your cooled melted orange chocolate mixture over the dough until it's completely covered.
  7. Roll the dough forming a log and cut into 12 evenly sized pieces. Place the rolls into your roasting tray, cover and leave in a warm room to rise for 30 minutes.
  8. To prepare the glaze, whisk together the icing sugar, orange zest and boiling water to a paste.
  9. Place the buns in the oven for 16 minutes or until golden brown all over, light and springy to touch.
  10. Whilst they are still warm brush over the glaze mixture covering as much of the tops and sides of the buns as possible. 
  11. For an extra touch, you can drizzle your vegan cinnamon buns with melted LoveRaw M:lk Choc Orange and top each bun with a square.
