Better Than Cinnamon Rolls

These rolls are delicious and great for brunch or as a baked treat.
The cinnamon roll originated from Sweden, but I remember my mother placing cinnamon sugar on toast.

1 3/4 Cup of Bread Flour
1 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Package of Instant Yeast

Instant Yeast

1/2 Cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/4 Cup of Water
1/8 Cup of Maple Syrup

You can use plain Maple Syrup

4 Ounces of Miyoko’s Vegan Butter
2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon
1/2 cup of Sugar

Icing Ingredients
3/4 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
2.5 Tablespoons of Almond Milk

Place the first three ingredients in a mixing bowl with a dough hook. And mix on the lowest speed for about 30 seconds. Then add almond milk, water, and syrup, and continue to mix on low for a minute. Then increase the speed of your mixer to medium for two more minutes. (See Photo below.) Cover the dough with cling wrap and place in a draft-free place in your kitchen. I use my microwave for proofing. Proof the dough for two to three hours.

Mixed Dough

Mix cinnamon with the sugar and set aside for later. Melt the butter also set aside.

Cinnamon Sugar & Vegan Butter Melting

Place parchment paper in 8″ x 8″ pan. I set a couple of cans in the pan to help the parchment paper hold its shape in the pan.

After the dough has proofed. Place on a floured surface. Flour the top of the dough lightly. Working as little as possible with the dough, cut into nine to eleven pieces.

Preparing Dough

Gently roll dough, then dip into the room temperature butter and next into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place dough into the pan. I drizzled a little leftover butter on top. Cover and proof for another thirty minutes.

Ready for Second Proof

While the dough is proofing, place a container filled half-way with water into the oven. The water allows the oven to steam when cooking the bread. Then, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Next, mix powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and almond milk in a small bowl to make the icing.


After the second proof, cook bread for thirty minutes. Carefully grab the ends of the parchment and place rolls onto a cooling rack.

Before Icing

Let cool for ten minutes, and then drizzle with the icing.


Next, watch your family magically make these rolls disappear.

Sending you love and light.
