Vegan cinnamon roll recipe

Vegan, egg-free, baked

Say hello to be best vegan cinnamon rolls!
Absolutely scrumptious, fluffy, soft and flavourful, they are perfectly sweet and very moorish. 

Vegan cinnamon rolls look amazing and are actually really easy to make!

I decided to use wheat-flour after I tried to use gluten-free with this recipe.
The yeast doesn't activate gluten-free flour very well, in comparison to wheat flour.
You would need to use Xantham gum with gluten-free flour to get the right results.

These cinnamon rolls can be enjoyed for breakfast or dessert. They are exciting to make and are ready to enjoy fresh out of the oven, YUM!

Preparation- Around 3 hours

Baking time- 20-25 minutes
Makes- Approximately 14 rolls
Level- Medium

Ingredients for the rolls
-240ml of dairy-free milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
-2 tablespoons of dairy-free butter (I use Tomor)
-1 sachet of active dry yeast powder (Around 9g)
-1 tablespoon of golden caster sugar
-Pinch of salt
-410g of self-raising flour (I used wheat flour)

Ingredients for the cinnamon sugar
-60g of golden caster sugar
-10g of dark demerara sugar
-2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon

Ingredients for the glaze
-350g of icing sugar
-1 teaspoon of vanilla
-2 tablespoons of vegan butter (I use Tomor)
-40ml of dairy-free milk (I use unsweetened almond)

To make the rolls
Step 1- Place the dairy-free milk and butter into a saucepan and heat until melted.
Allow to cool a little.
Step 2- Pour into a bowl and sprinkle in the yeast and mix.
Pop into a warm place and cover with a tea towel for the yeast to activate.
This will take around 15 minutes.

Step 3- Once the yeast is foamy, add in the sugar and salt and mix.

Step 4- Add the flour to the yeast mixture a little at a time until sticky dough forms.

Step 5- Knead on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until a smooth dough forms.
Step 6- Place into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film.
Place in a warm area for approximately 2 hours to rise. You want it to double in size.

Step 7- Flour a clean surface and roll out the dough into a rectangular shape.

Step 8- Spread melted butter all over the dough.

Step 9- Mix the cinnamon sugar ingredients together in a bowl then sprinkle over the melted butter, making sure its even.

Step 10- Starting at a long side, roll the dough into a log, pinching it as you go to keep it rolled up. 

Step 11- Once in a log, using a knife or string, cut into 1-2 inch rolls.

Step 12- Generously grease a square tin with melted butter and line up the cinnamon rolls, leaving space as they will rise.
Step 13- Brush melted butter over each roll.

Step 14- Cover with cling film and pop back into a warm area and allow to rise for 20 minutes.

Step 15- Preheat your oven to 179 degrees c.

Step 16- Once the rolls have grown in size, pop them into the middle of the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden in colour.

To make the glaze

Step 1- Place the icing, vanilla butter and milk into a food processor/blender and whizz up until smooth.
Add as much milk as needed for a smooth glaze.

Step 2- Smooth over the rolls until fully coated.

Serve while warm.
