Indulge in the best ever Vegan Cinnamon Rolls, a comfort food and kid-friendly treat perfect for breakfast or dessert, made with dairy-free ingredients and baked to perfection.
- Generously rub two disposable foil pie pans with vegan butter.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, melted butter, and sugar. Ensure that the mixture is just warm, registering between 100-110˚F (37-43˚C). If it is hotter, allow it to cool slightly.
- Evenly sprinkle the yeast over the warm mixture and let it set for 1 minute.
- Add 5 cups of flour and 1 teaspoon of salt to the milk mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
- Cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
- After 1 hour, the dough should have nearly doubled in size.
- Remove the towel and add an additional ½ cup (95g) of flour and salt. Stir well, then turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface.
- Knead the dough lightly, adding more flour as needed, until it just loses its stickiness and does not stick to the surface.
- Roll out the dough into a large rectangle, about ½-inch (1 cm) thick. Make sure to fix the corners to ensure they are sharp and even.
- Evenly spread the softened vegan butter over the dough.
- Sprinkle the dough evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Roll up the dough, forming a log, and pinch the seam closed. Place it seam-side down and trim off any unevenness on either end.
- Cut the log in half, then divide each half into 7 evenly sized pieces, approximately 1½ inches (8 cm) thick each.
- Place 7 cinnamon rolls in each cake pan, with one in the center and six around the sides. Cover the pans with plastic wrap and put them in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
- To prepare the frosting, whisk together powdered sugar, almond milk, and vanilla in a medium-sized mixing bowl until smooth.
- Remove the plastic wrap. Bake the cinnamon rolls in a preheated oven at 350˚F (180˚C) for 25-30 minutes, until they turn golden brown.
- While still warm, drizzle the frosting evenly over the cinnamon rolls.
- Enjoy the delicious cinnamon rolls!
