SERVINGS: Makes 9 rolls.
3 tablespoons plant-based butter
1 cup plant-based milk
2 ¼ tsp instant yeast
1 ½ tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
3 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of oil
1 neat egg prepared according to package instructions
5 tablespoons plant-based butter
⅓ cup sugar
1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon
Additional 3 tablespoons plant-based butter (melted) for brushing.
Plant-based cream cheese icing:
½ cup plant-based butter, softened
6 ounces plant-based cream cheese
3-4 cups powdered sugar
Heat the vegan butter and milk in a microwave safe bowl, heat gradually, a few seconds at a time, until the temperature reaches 110 degrees (measure with a kitchen thermometer). When the temperature is correct, add the yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes. In a stand mixer, using the kneading attachment, add the yeast/butter mixture and then add the sugar, salt, and neategg and gradually add the flour until a slightly sticky ball forms. Oil a large bowl and place the ball of dough in the bowl to rise, covered, for 1 ½ hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle, the dough should be about ¼” thick. Spread the cinnamon filling evenly across the rectangle. Starting at the bottom of the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough to the top of the rectangle. Cut into 9 even cross sections, forming the rolls. Place the rolls in a greased 8 x8 baking dish. Brush with the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden on the top.
Prepare the icing: Whip together the butter, cream cheese, and 3 cups of the powdered sugar. Add more powdered sugar if necessary to get the icing to a thick yet spreadable consistency. Once the rolls have cooled for 5 minutes, spoon the icing on top of each roll, allowing it to melt down each one. Serve up the cinnamon rolls while they’re still fresh from the oven!
