  • Turn off the flame and transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Let the mixture cool down to about 100 - 110 F temperature. You can use a candy thermometer or it should be just warm to touch. Add the yeast to the mixture, mix well and left it sit for 10 mins.

  • Transfer the dough back to the mixing bowl. Cover it with a wet kitchen cloth and leave it in a warm, dark place for about 1 to 2 hours. The dough should double in size. Now, transfer the dough back onto a floured surface.

  • Use a rolling pin to roll it into a thin rectangular sheet. Melt 2 Tbsp of the butter and brush it on top of the dough. Combine the sugar and cinnamon powder and sprinkle evenly to cover the entire surface of the dough.

  • Start rolling the dough from the longer end tightly into a log. Use a sharp greased knife to cut the dough into 1.5 inch rolls. Transfer them to a greased 8X8 baking pan.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. While the oven is preheating, cover the dough with the kitchen towel and leave it to raise for 5-10 mins. Melt the remaining 1 tbsp of the butter and brush the rolls with butter. Then, bake the rolls for about 27 mins or until golden on top.

Notes | FAQ

- The quantity of flour needed would vary. Hence add little by little and stop when the dough is coming together.
- The rolls are just delicious on their own. However, optionally you can drizzle on some icing on top of the rolls as well. To make a simple icing, mix about 1 - 2 Tbsp of the creamer with ¼ Cup of powdered sugar. Drizzle the icing on top of the cinnamon rolls.
- The icing is however purely optional. Do adjust the quantity of icing as per taste.
- Recipe was loosely adapted from here.
- The vegan butter I used for this recipe already had a bit of salt. hence I ended up using less than ¼ tsp of salt for the actual recipe.
- It is important to have the creamer and butter mixture between 100 - 110 F. If it is any colder, the yeast will not activate. If it is any hotter, it will kill the yeast.
