Vegan MOFO day 13- Cinnamon Buns!

So I decided to try the Cinnamon bun recipe from "The Joy of Vegan Baking," and holy crap, these were amazing. I had one for breakfast this morning, and I still am on a sugar high. We don't usually eat all that much sugar, and these were LOADED with sugar. I guess all the earth balance, sugar and white flour is why they tasted so darn decadent.

I have to say that "The Joy of Vegan Baking" has not let me down once, everything I've made has come out fantastic. These were definitely a little bit of work, I made the rolls last night, and baked them in the morning. I made the dough, let it rise, then rolled it out, made the filling, rolled it up, then sliced them, and let them hang out in the fridge over night. I woke up early this morning, let them do a 2nd rise, and baked them. Then of course, I topped them with the optional icing... which made them ridiculously tasty!

I don't consider myself a baker, I usually like to cook more than bake, but these were well worth the effort, and definitely within my skill set.
what the buns looked like before i stuck them in the fridge for the overnight


  1. I'm sure these are the equivalent of what Brits call Chelsea Buns but the only real way I'm gonna find out is to make them! Oh the hardship....

  2. sweet bread rolled up with brown sugar, earth balance, cinnamon, chopped walnuts and raisins, covered in sticky sweetness! whatever they are called, they are delicious!
