Posting this mainly to remind myself next time I make these (which will hopefully be soon). I was looking for something else in a cookbook and I saw a recipe for apple cinnamon rolls. It simply added finely chopped apples in with the brown sugar/cinnamon before spreading it around. I'm defenitely going to try this. If anyone else gets a chance to before I do, come back and tell us how it was.



It'd probably be good with peaches or some other fruits as well.

Regardless, they were still really good, and were even better the next day.





Test the yeast.

I c warm (100-103 degree) water. Not hotter or you'll kill the yeast, less and they will be sluggish. Use a candy thermometer if you can. Dollar stores carry them.

add a sweetner: florida crystals or aguave nectar & mix. You should see activity.

btw, the cinnamon buns turned out "to die for" and were "the best ever tasted--ever" and "I have no problems saying these are better than Cjnnabons"..."I tried it, and upon tasting them, I had 5 other people try them, and everyone thought they were incredible."



^_^ whoever landed this recipe is awesome...I did pull a couple "this and that's"..ie-I added a lil more than a cup, a lil more than a tsp, etc...throughout the entire recipe. It came out perfectly (er...way better than I imagined).





Thank you again ^_^

anyone have any ideas if whether or not you can make these the night before, not bake them, but refrigerate, then in the morning, let them sit out to rise and then bake? I want to bring them warm to work but won't have the time to do the whole process in the morning. Just wondering.

I've made these a bunch of times, mainly for family gatherings (I get requests now) and everyone loved them. Most people asked for the recipe. My brother just asked me to make him some more.

These sound soooo good! Is it possible to replace some or all of the unbleached flour with whole wheat flour?

thebelovedtree- I'm really curious as to the order in which you put the ingredients into your bread machine. Did you follow the recipe's directions to "mix the yeast, sugar, and heated soymilk and let sit until foamy"?? and so on, or, did you just throw the first eight ingredients in all together?????



I want to use my bread machine but its new and I'm paranoid because the directions booklet makes it seem so touchy about how you add ingredients and in which order and I'm afraid I'll screw it up





Please help!



Thanks

I did let the yeast foam w/ the soy milk and the sugar, but I don't think its necessary, I'm just paranoid about getting dead yeast when I'm not using fresh. I also mixed the flax egg separately because it works best if it sits for a few minutes before you use it.



Really you can dump just about any dough recipe in your bread machine and as long as your ingredients all got in there you should be fine, the only time its a problem is if you're using the delayed start timer, because then you don't want your yeast to get wet too early.

i goofed, and forgot the earth balance in the dough, and had to take the dough out of the machine and mix (moosh, moosh moosh) it up by hand until it was incorporated, and even in that instance (cuz I'm a moron) it still came out perfectly. LOL...so..I think whatever way to put the ingredients together should be fine, "as long as they all make it in there."



Also, to be sure, pre-mixing of the flaxseed would be important, the rest is just to be tossed in, or according to your manual, but I just kinda toss in all in there and pray for the best ;-) I haven't been disappointed yet (at least not with operational problems, although operator error, that's always another story!)



:-)



and I'm making these for another vegan potluck tonight ^_^

It is my signature "dish" for the potluck and everyone says these things are "to die for"



YAY!!!

These are like CRACK.

I used a soy creamer and icing sugar icing though because we can't get tofutti cream cheese anywhere around here.

My goodness. Next time I'm doubling it.

I've made these twice now when we've had friends over and everyone loved them. When I made them yesterday, the dough didnt rise well the first time and I was ready to throw it out. I decided just to finish it anyway and was very glad that I did. They doubled in size the second time and came out really well. Thanks so much for the recipe MollyGoat.

Well, I made them this evening and they came out pretty good!



I had some issues with the temperature of the soy milk (it felt room temp. the first time but the yeast didn't activate, so I tried again with it warmer and it still didn't seem to be activating; made the dough anyway and they turned out fine) and the dough not rising (it's cold around here and putting the dough in a warm oven solved that issue), but in the end they worked out just fine. Nice and tender and not too overwhelmingly cinnamony like Cinnabon's can be.



Not sure how I like the icing. It's a little more sour than the typical cream cheese frosting I'm used to. I'm not sure if that's because that's the way Tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese tastes (I don't eat cream cheese on its own; only in icing or cheesecake), or if it's just the icing. I think next time I might make them with a standard icing sugar type frosting.



They went over well with my omni husband and friend (they ate half the rolls) and my mom said they turned out really well but didn't want to eat them because she's watching what she eats (she took a nibble of one to see how they turned out.
