Warm, fluffy and rich vegan Cinnamon Twirl Rolls. Make a pot of your favorite tea, light some candles and enjoy these heavenly cinnamon rolls on a cozy Sunday morning.
380 g strong bread flour
20 g sugar
20 g activated instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
250 ml oat milk
3 tbsp vanilla extract (this will make them incredibly tasty!)
50 g plant butter (melted)
1/2 tsp cardamom (optional, I LOVE adding cardamom to my CR)
A dash of cinnamon
3 tbsp cinnamon (the more you add the better, in my opinion)
100 g brown sugar (You can also use white but brown tastes better)
Pinch of salt
150 g plant butter
I would recommend using good quality cinnamon and not the cheapest one because you can definitely tell the difference.
I actually made mine way to big, so I ended up with 6 giant ones haha. You can easily get 10 if you make them smaller.
1. Add all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl (flour, sugar, yeast and salt), give it a quick whisk to make sure it's all mixed.
2. Add oat milk and plant butter to a pot and heat until the butter has melted, set aside to cool. When it's cooled down to 30-40C you can continue by adding it slowly to the bowl while mixing at low speed.
3. Knead the dough on medium speed for about 5 minutes, add a damp tea towel to the bowl and put it in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size (the warmth will speed up the proofing process).
4. Now it's time to make the filling. Add cinnamon, brown sugar, salt and butter to a bowl and mix. Set aside.
5. Take the dough out of the bowl and add it to a floured surface. Roll it into a large rectangle, add the filling on top and spread it out using a spatula.
6. Take one end of the dough and flip it over, so it's halved. Cut it into strips using a pizza cutter.
7. Take one of the strips, hold each end and start twisting it around. Roll it together and making sure that the stem is at the bottom, continue doing that with all of the strips. It will get messy but don't worry, that's normal. Let them rise for another hour.
8. Bake them for 20-30 minutes at 180°C. Add tin foil on top of the cinnamon rolls if they start looking too brown, this will allow them to finish baking without burning the bread.
