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.

These came out really good, surprisingly the leftovers (when re-heated) tasted better. They were very tasty :) even my non-veg dad liked them. I ran out of frosting so some of them only had a little, I suggest making extra frosting.

I think the blending of the sugar is probably so there is no corn starch, as powdered sugar from a store usually has that. I've never seen a cinnamon roll recipe without yeast!

ive been looking for a good cinnamon roll recipe... but i was just wondering what kind of yeast do you use and what is its purpose if there is no rising or anything in the recipe?  sorry if this is a dumb question... im not a skilled baker

You have a point, I cook a lot and was wondering the same thing.  Also in the icing info, is it asking you to powder it in a blender?  There is powdered organic cane sugar available now at Whole Foods and other grocers, that isn't necessary.
