Cinnamon Rolls

What you need: 

[u]Cinnamon Rolls[/u]:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup nondairy milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons melted vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoon cinnamon [u]Icing[/u]:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon nondairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do: 

1. Cinnamon Rolls: In a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, yeast, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add nondairy milk and vegetable oil; mix until dough becomes sticky mass.
2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In a small saucepan, melt margarine.
3. Split dough in half and flatten into a 4-inch x 8-inch rectangle, using flour as needed to reduce stickiness. For each half, spread half of the melted margarine onto dough and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll each half of dough into a long tubular shape and cut into mini rolls (cutting approximately every 1-1/2-inch) place mini rolls into a non stick pan, and repeat above steps with second half of dough.
4. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 9 to 12 minutes.
5. Icing: Blend sugar until it is powdery. Add nondairy milk and vanilla extract. Pour icing onto rolls immediately after taking them out of the oven.

ive made these a lot now, and i just tried my first variation, instead of the cinamon i used ground hazelnuts, and in the icing i used almond instead of vanilla, and mixed in chopped hazelnuts, deeeelishous. next batch im getting apple in there somehow too.,.....ohhh the potentials are endless. recipes like this are the reason people like me have round tummies!

After reading all the reviews, I decided to try this and I wasn't necessarily disappointed but I think next time I'll learn from my mistakes. These were a little on the dry side but I think the problem was that I was overcompensating for the reviews where people were having trouble with the cinnamon mixture oozing out all over the place. I've made other cinnamon roll recipes where it doesn't call for that much marg. and you are only supposed to brush it on the rolled out dough (preferably with a pastry brush). I think the problem ultimately was the dough and that it was too dry. Most recipes that call for yeast have some kind of an activation period and the dough is supposed to raise for a couple of hours. Also, for those of you who thought it was too cinnamon-y, I don't blame you. 2 Tbsp of cinnamon is A LOT. I doubled the recipe and I only used maybe a teaspoon and a half.

I think the best icing to use on cinnamon rolls is a faux-cream cheese one. The icing for this one was too sweet.

hey hey,

was just wondering if anyone knew if i could replace the soy milk with just plain old water? i don't usually have  any soy or rice milk 'cause it just costs so darn much. i would love to make these but do i have to go out and get myself some soy milk?

thanks!!

Does anyone know of a yeast-free cinnamon rolls recipe? Im unable to consume yeast, and I'd probably replace the wheat flour with something else - but I just wanted to know if anyone had tried this without the yeast and if so, how it turned out. Thank you.

Also, the Quick and Easy Cinnamon Roll recipe does not require yeast: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=11721. I always use it because it is delicious and much faster than yeast recipes. :-)

You could use your favorite biscuit dough, roll it out, slather it with a nice cinnamon mixture, roll it up, cut the roll into rounds, sprinkle some cinnamon goodness over the top of the rolls and then bake at 400 degrees F.
