Cinnamon Rolls

What you need: 

Dough:
1 cup warm nondairy milk (I use soymilk)
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar, divided
1 (2 1/4 teaspoons) package active dry yeast
1/3 cup vegan margarine, melted (I use Earth Balance)
2 egg equivalents, prepared (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0)
4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 teaspoon salt Filling:
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 tablespoons cinnamon
vegan margarine (for spreading on rolled dough)

What you do: 

1. For dough, place the warm nondairy milk, pinch of the sugar, and yeast in a large mixing bowl (I use a Kitchenaid). Let sit for 5 minutes or until foamy.
2. Add the melted butter substitute, granulated sugar, egg substitute, 1/2 the flour, and lastly the salt. Stir on low with the paddles attachment on until the ingredients are incorporated, about a minute. Add the rest of the flour in two intervals. Knead it for about 3 minutes until it's soft and pliable. Let rise for 1 hour.
3. While the dough is rising, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl for filling. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Once the dough has risen, flour a clean surface as needed and roll the dough out into a rectangle about 16"x21". The dough should be about 1/4-1/8" deep.
4. Spread on the butter substitute on the top side to coat, sprinkle on the brown sugar/cinnamon mix to coat. Roll it up width wise, cut into 12 equal lengths.
5. Place cinnamon rolls into two cake pans and bake for about 10 minutes or more. They should be slightly soft when you take them out.
Source of recipe: This is a recipe my family has me make on any special occasion. On Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, when they really want them, etc. This cinnamon roll recipe really is one of the best, if not the best recipe I have.

Hey, which egg replacer did everybody use for this recipe? Ener-G or something else? Thanks!

I used 2 flax eggs & they worked perfectly.  In case you've never used them before you mix 1 tbsp ground flax w/ 3 tbsp of water and that is equal to 1 egg.

This recipe is AMAZING.  I added some chopped pecans to the filling and they were so so so delicious!  Better than cinnabon & worth the wait/prep time for a special occasion.  I got 14 big rolls out of this and had to bake them for probably closer to 14-15 minutes.  I ate one after 10 and the inside was still dough.. i ate it of course & it was still yummy.  I made a little bit of glaze out of powdered sugar, vanilla & soymilk and drizzled that on top.  so good - and don't forget to microwave the leftovers for about 20 seconds and they are as good as new!  I LOVE these!

These turned out to be really good.  I made the chocolate glaze from this site to go on top of them that really made them good.  I had no problems making it, it went really well. I highly reccomend this recipe. 2 thumbs up!!!

I made these this morning for my boyfriend's birthday, and he (and I) loved them!  I had tried a recipe before and they were way too buttery and the filling practically leaked out of them.  Although these didn't rise (I used close to expired yeast) they still looked good and fluffy, and tasted amazing.  I used a white frosting on them when they were still hot so it melted down the sides and into the middle, which was perfect.  I will definitley make these again!!

:)Wow these were fantastic. Better than I remember Cinnabon. I used the cream cheese frosting from the incredible carrot cake recipe and made these melt in your mouth. YUMMY!!!!

These were very tasty, but I messed them up. First, I made them last night so that they would be ready for breakfast this morning. The first mistake I made was using whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour (I thought the flour seemed very course, but it was late and I was slow). Then, I didn't understand what a paddle attachment was. So, I used this attachment that didn't do much. The end result was that the buns didn't rise. My husband said he would make them next time since he IS the bread maker in the house. They ended up being very yummy, my kids loved them. They reminded me of those  pecan rolls you can buy (little debbie?) without the pecans.

These are SO cinnamon-y!  I made them this morning and came home to a half empty pan! (Admittedly, I ate two for breakfast.)  I only made two changes.  I used ww pastry flour and baked them for about 25 minutes- partially because my oven is a little wonky.  I will definitely make these again!

This is my first review here, ever!  Anyway, I made this with whole wheat flour instead of all purpose.  I also used coconut oil instead of any butter substitute, simply because I didn't have any at home.  I also made mine all miniature, so they were just slightly bigger than bite size.

Thank you for an excellent recipe.

Also, the dental floss thing really works!
