This is a traditional European take on the cinnamon roll, with a creamy filling that´s not dry and made with butter, and NO frosting on top. They're buttery, fluffy and sweet without frosting, so please don´t ruin them with liquid sugar !
They are also not baked as a cake, but are made as separate buns, easy to store in bags and freeze.

- 100g vegan butter / margarine (3.5 oz)
- 1.2 dl brown sugar (1/2 cup)
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
What you will need
- 1 big bowl
- 1 whisk
- 1 small pot
- 1 spoon to stir
- 1 measuring cup
- 1 bowl
- 1 fork
- 1 rolling pin
- 1 spatula
- 2 baking trays
- Baking paper or silicone mats
- In a big bowl pout in the boiling water and add the brown sugar. Whisk it and let it cool down until lukewarm.
- Then add in the yeast and 2 tablespoons flour. Let rest for 10 minutes, allowing the yeast to wake up.
- In a small pot put in the plant milk and vegan butter. Turn the heat on high and let the butter melt while stirring. When melted turn off the heat, add in the sugar and mix it until fully dissolved. Don’t let it get too hot, this will kill the yeast when added. If too hot let cool down until lukewarm. Then add to the yeast mix.
- Add in half of the flour and whisk. Now the dough should be too thick to whisk. Add in the rest of the flour little by little and gently knead with clean hands.
- When the dough starts to form, put it on a clean tabletop and knead for 5 minutes. The dough should be slightly sticky and very smooth. Cover the dough with a bit of flour, put back in the bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel.
- Let rest for about 1 hour in a warm spot, or until the dough have risen to double size. Meanwhile prepare the filling.
- Put the vegan butter, brown sugar and cinnamon into a bowl. Mix well with a fork until its smooth, then refrigerate.
- When finished rising put the dough on a clean tabletop prinkled with flour, roll the dough into a rectangle like pictured, about 55 x 40 cm (22 x 18 inch). Take half of the filling and spread it out with a spatula, leaving one long side of the rectangle without filling.
- Gently roll the dough from the long side, so you end up with one long roll. Cut the dough in half, then cut each half into 6 pieces, making 12 out of this batch of dough.
- On a baking tray put baking paper or a silicone mat.
- The dough end of each roll, place under the centre of the roll. This gives the roll a bottom so the filling wont spill everywhere while baking. place them on the baking tray with some space in between each roll. They’re sticky so don’t cover them.
- Let them rest for about 1 hour.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180c (355 F) on normal setting, in the middle of the oven, one tray at the time for about 20 minutes.
- Take out and devour them warm and fluffy ! Store in a bag and an airtight container when cooled. Texture will keep very fluffy for a few days if not exposed to the air. They can also be freezed.
