Vegan cinnamon rolls

Vegan cinnamon rolls

When I first turned vegan, there were a few things I missed: Starbucks Frappuccinos, cheese pizzas, marshmallows, and cinnamon rolls. As it turns out, you just need the right recipe to get the same taste with none of the cruelty. Here is a good vegan cinnamon roll recipe. As for the cheese, you should check out Daiya vegan cheese. For the marshmallows, Chicago Soy Dairy's Dandies. If anyone finds a good vegan Frappuccino on the market, let me know. For now, I'll stick to making them myself.
I hope you enjoy these cinnamon rolls. I've been making them at least once a week since learning this recipe.
Cinnamon Rolls (adapted from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra-Moskowitz)

2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/3 c sugar + 1 tsp sugar
1/2 c lukewarm water
3/4 c soy milk, room temperature
1/3 c canola oil
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 1/4 - 4 c flour
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c white sugar
1 Tb ground cinnamon
2 Tb flour
To roll
1/4 c Earth Balance (soy margarine, non-hydrogenated)

1 c powdered sugar
1-1/2 - 2 Tb almond (or soy) milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Prime yeast by putting yeast into half the lukewarm water with the 1 tsp of sugar. Let sit, make sure it bubbles so you know your yeasties are alive. Mix the rest of the dough ingredients together, add yeast mix. Knead for 5 minutes. Let rise 1 hour. Punch the dough. Let rest 10 more minutes.

Make the filling (mix together ingredients above for filling).

Roll out dough to 12" x18" on a floured cookie sheet or other clean, flat surface. Sprinkle on filling evenly, dot with small chunks of the Earth Balance. You can do this by hand if easier.

Roll from the long side. Go slowly and get it as tight as possible.

Oil or spray 11" x 13" pan, cut the roll into 12 pieces (cut off and throw away the ends if they're not covered in filling). To cut into 12, cut the roll in half, then half again, then into thirds.

Cover with towel, let rise for 30-45 minutes in a warm location. I usually put it on the stove, above the pilot lights.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 18-22 minutes. Make icing while it bakes.

When, it comes out of the oven, drizzle with icing ASAP.

Dot with Earth Balance vegan non-hydrogenated margarine.

      tip: roll from the SHORT side, not the long - you will get more swirls in each roll, and you can 'cut' with dental floss for a prettier finish. first, mark the top of the long roll with a knife as is mentioned above, just to know where you need to slice. then take a length of floss (the same as you'd floss with!), slide it under the roll, and just cross it over the top and pull - voila!

      thanks for putting this online, cause i don't always carry around my copy of Vegan Brunch!
