1 package active dry yeast
236 ml almond milk
192 g flour
3 tbsp Cane sugar
½ tsp Salt
3 tbsp Vegan butter
43 g brown sugar
1½ tsp Cinnamon
21 g Vegan butter
85 g Powdered sugar
2 tbsp almond milk


  • pot
  • 2 whisks
  • bowl
  • wooden spoon
  • pastry brush
  • knife
  • baking pan
  • Small bowl
  • Sifter
  • Step 1/8

    • 1 package active dry yeast
    • 236 ml almond milk
    • 3 tbsp Cane sugar
    • 3 tbsp Vegan butter
    • pot
    • whisk

    Heat plant milk and 3 tablespoons vegan butter until just slightly warm, about 110 degrees. Disolve 3 tablespoons cane sugar, stir, and sprinkle packet of active dry yeast over the top of the mixture.

  • Step 2/8

    Allow this to sit for 5-10 minutes or until it becomes frothy/foamy. If it does nothing, your milk may have been too warm and killed the yeast, or too cold and not activated it.

  • Step 3/8

    • 192 g active dry yeast
    • ½ tsp Salt
    • bowl
    • wooden spoon

    Mix up your yeast mixture and add in flour, a little at a time while mixing in between, and salt. Roll into a ball and allow to sit, covered, for 1 hour to rise - I lightly oiled this bowl to help it not stick.

  • Step 4/8

    Once it has at least doubled in size, flour a flat surface and place the dough down. Add another sprinkle of flour to the top and to a rolling pin and roll up into a large rectangle about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.

  • Step 5/8

    • 43 g brown sugar
    • 1½ tsp Cinnamon
    • 21 g Vegan butter
    • pastry brush

    Brush melted vegan butter across the entire dough, leaving a 1 inch margin at the top and bottom. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon evenly and tightly roll up starting at the bottom and rolling up to the top.

  • Step 6/8

    • knife
    • baking pan

    With a sharp knife, cut into equal sizes, about 1 1/2 inch thick. Place in a lightly oiled cooking pan at least 9x9 inch or larger, and allow to rise again, covered, for another hour*. Then preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • Step 7/8

    Now brush on a little more vegan butter and bake them, uncovered, for about 25 minutes or until golden brown!

  • Step 8/8

    • Small bowl
    • whisk
    • Sifter

    Allow them to cool completely, then mix together your powdered sugar with almond or any plant milk, and pour over the rolls evenly.
