Wow, it was not my intention to disappear from the blog for so long! I tell you, this parenting gig isn’t easy. It just swallows me up at times.

March and April were a couple of the hardest months we’ve had since becoming parents of two. We were struggling to stay afloat and not sleeping much. I started to feel depressed/anxious on and off (which worried me a bit, given my past struggles), and was at a loss for how to write about what I was going through. For a while, I lost the motivation to do many of the things I normally enjoy. The past few years have been amazing and intense and emotional and exhilarating and exhausting. The phrase “burning a candle at both ends” comes to mind. My kids are my world and being a mother is my favourite role in life, but it’s so damn hard sometimes. That’s just the honest truth. Some days you just survive. But then there are those daily moments that take my breath away…make my heart burst with love and my eyes well with tears, and it’s like…oh yeah. THIS. This is it. This is what makes it all worth it a million times over. Grateful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel.

Thankfully, we seem to be in a better phase right now: we’re all getting more sleep, and the kids have been much happier. I’m soaking it up! My motivation has also returned and inspiration seems to be everywhere lately. Despite the incessant rain of late, things are feeling fresh and new again. My birthday is coming up in a week, so the timing couldn’t be better.

If you’ve been following me on Insta Stories, you may have seen the development of these cinnamon rolls over the past couple weeks. Cinnamon rolls for DAYS, you guys!! Working off my Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls recipe from way back in 2010, I made a classic cinnamon roll—vegan styles, of course. Why the heck didn’t I have one already? I do not know. My goal was to make the recipe foolproof without sacrificing that amazing cinnamon roll experience we all know and love, and based on my taste testers’ reactions I’d say it’s a big crowd-pleaser. (One of my pals said they remind her of her grandmother’s cinnamon rolls!) Don’t be put off by the number of steps; I wanted to provide a lot of detail so you wouldn’t be left hanging (that’s the worst). Also, be sure to see my notes on how to prep these the day before (you know I tested that, too), so you can wake up and bake fresh cinnamon rolls with minimal bleary-eyed fiddling in the kitchen. I know what we’ll be enjoying on Mother’s Day, and I can’t wait to celebrate with our crazy little fam…

Classic Cinnamon Rolls

By

Fluffy cinnamon rolls topped with a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting; these are great to whip up for special occasions or laid-back weekend mornings. There are quite a few steps, but don’t panic! I promise, as long as you read everything over before you begin, you'll be fine—they're actually quite easy to make. Even though this recipe technically requires about 2 hours and 45 minutes total time, only 30 to 40 minutes of that are active. The remainder is rest and bake time, during which I encourage you to kick up your feet and relax! See my tips below for how to make these the night before, too. I adapted this recipe from my Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls (2010).

Yield
10 to 12 rolls
Prep Time
Rest time
1 Hour, 45 Minutes
Cook time

Ingredients:

For the yeast:
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) sugar
  • 1 packet (8 g) quick-rise instant dry yeast
For the dough:
  • 2 1/2 cups + 3 tablespoons (430 g) all-purpose white flour, plus more for kneading
  • 1/3 cup (67 g) vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup (73 g) cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (6 g) fine sea salt
For the cinnamon sugar filling:
  • 1/2 cup (110 g) cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (10 g) cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) vegan butter, melted
For the pan sauce and frosting:

Directions:

  1. Set aside a 9- by 13-inch casserole dish.
  2. For the yeast: In a small bowl, add the warm water. Make sure it’s not too hot; it should feel like warm bath water (approximately 110°F/45°C). Stir in the sugar until mostly dissolved. Now, stir in the yeast until dissolved. Set aside for about 6 to 7 minutes so the yeast can activate (it’ll look foamy when ready).
  3. For the dough: Flour a working surface for later. Add 2 cups of flour into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Melt 1/3 cup butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove the pot from the burner and stir in the almond milk, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. The mixture should be lukewarm—if it’s any hotter let it cool off for a minute. Stir in all of the yeast mixture until just combined.
  5. Pour the wet yeast mixture over the flour and stir with a large wooden spoon. Stop mixing once all of the flour is incorporated and it looks a bit like muffin batter, about 15 seconds.
  6. Add in the remaining 1/2 cup and 3 tablespoons flour. Mix with a spoon for several seconds. Lightly oil your hands and roughly knead the mixture until it comes together into a shaggy, sticky dough. It’ll probably stick to your fingers (even with the oil), but that’s normal. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface.
  7. Knead the dough for about 3 to 4 minutes until it’s no longer sticky to the touch; it should be smooth and elastic. While kneading, sprinkle on a small handful of flour whenever the dough becomes sticky to the touch. Don’t be afraid to add some flour; I probably use between 1/2 and 3/4 cup while kneading. Shape the dough into a ball.
  8. Wash out the mixing bowl and dry it. Oil the bowl (I love to use a spray oil for ease) and place the ball of dough inside. Flip the dough around so it gets lightly coated in the oil. Tightly cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the oven with the light on (or simply in a warm, draft-free area). Let the dough rise for 60 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, make the cinnamon sugar filling. In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon and set aside.
  10. Make the pan sauce: In a small pot, melt 1/2 cup butter (you can use the unwashed pot from before). Remove half of the melted butter (eyeballing it is fine) and put it in another small bowl (this will be spread onto the rolled-out dough before adding the cinnamon sugar). With the scant 1/4 cup melted butter remaining in the pot, stir in the 2 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar until combined (this is the pan sauce). Pour the pan sauce into a 9- by 13-inch casserole dish and spread it out.
  11. After the first dough rise, re-flour your working surface and grab a rolling pin. Roll the dough into a large rectangle, approximately 20 by 14 inches.
  12. With a pastry brush, spread the remaining melted butter onto the dough, covering the entire surface. Sprinkle on all of the cinnamon sugar filling, leaving a 1/2 inch around the edges without any sugar.
  13. Grab the end of the dough (short side of rectangle) and roll it up, rolling as tightly as possible. Place it seam-side down once it’s rolled up. Use a serrated knife to slice 1 1/2 inch–thick rolls. You should have 10 to 12.
  14. Grab your cut rolls and place into the prepared pan, cut-side down, a few inches apart from one another. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, place into the oven with the light on, and allow them to rise for 45 minutes.
  15. Meanwhile, prepare the Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting.
  16. After the second rise, remove the rolls from the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  17. Remove the plastic wrap. Bake the rolls for 23 to 26 minutes at 350°F (180°C), until lightly golden in a few spots. Remove from oven and allow the rolls to cool for about 10 minutes.
  18. Frost the rolls with the cream cheese frosting. Slide a butter knife around each cinnamon roll and lift it out. (Alternatively, you can pop them out first and frost each roll individually.) Serve immediately and enjoy!
  19. If you have leftovers, you can wrap them up and chill them in the fridge for up to 48 hours. I like to reheat unfrosted rolls in the oven on a baking sheet for 5 minutes at 350°F (180°C). The oven returns them to their amazing gooey-soft state! Alternatively, you can freeze the cooled unfrosted rolls (wrap them in a layer of plastic wrap, followed by tinfoil) for a week or two. To reheat, simply unwrap and pop them frozen onto a baking sheet and into the oven for 10 to 12 minutes at 350°F (180°C) until warmed throughout. The edges get a bit crispy, and it’s oh so good!

Tips:

Want cinnamon rolls prepped for breakfast the next day? Simply follow the recipe until you complete the second rise. Place the wrapped dish in the fridge overnight. In the morning, remove the dish from the fridge and let the rolls sit in the oven with the light on for about 20 minutes. After that, remove the dish from the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Remove the plastic wrap, and bake as directed. They can be prepped up to 18 hours in advance. Just be sure to cover the dish tightly with plastic wrap while in the fridge.

Oh. My. Goodness. These are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever made! And I’ve made my fair share, trying to find the perfect recipe. These are better than Cinnabon! And I’m a die hard for them.

The steps Angela gave were a bit overwhelming originally to read but as I went through it made sense and was super helpful. I followed step by step and they turned out just like her photos! My brother kept saying that through the process that it looked the same as hers. True sign of a good recipe!

I give 5 stars for these soft, delicious cinnamon rolls!

Just made these for my family and they were gone within minutes! These look and taste like the real deal, yet they have a vegan twist which I love! I even found a vegan creamcheese recipe on the web which I made to use in the frosting…it turned out amazing. Have you ever thought of creating your own vegan creamcheese recipe? The storebought ones are pricey. Thank you for creating and sharing such wonderful recipes!

My daughters, sisters and I love your cookbooks! You are truly gifted and inspired. I have been making cinnamon rolls for 50 years and can share some ideas…
I start with milk instead of water, 2 cups, so you do end up with more rolls to freeze or give away. To that I beat in 3 fresh eggs.Not vegan, so maybe not useful to you so far, but pretty nutritious! When it comes to filling, I use straight cinnamon, no sugar, plus some raisins scattered over the dough before rolling up. Instead of frosting I pour a butter & brown sugar mixture (melt 1 stick butter, 1cup brown sugar, add 1/2 cup water & bring to a boil) into the baking pans, sprinkle with walnuts and then place the rolls side by side in the pan. Instead of plastic wrap I put the pan inside a clean, recycled grocery produce bag. (Same bag can be used to cover the rising dough in the bowl). These buns freeze well and they endear you to friends and family!
With gratitude and admiration,
Claire

I’ve had some pretty big lows with my three kids (hello, 3 kids, 3 and under). Take it a day at a time, and always look for ways to reduce, do less, minimize.

But it’s SO nice to see you back and a great new recipe! My mom made cinnamon rolls, but I never have done it from complete scratch myself. I bet my kids would love helping with these. Pizza is always such a fun (and sometimes messy/trying) time for us. And one of them always helps with some aspect of each step, particularly punching the dough down.

hope the good sleep continues <3

Angela,
These Cinnamon Rolls looks so amazing. I’ve made vegan cinnamon rolls before but never with a cream cheese frosting! I’m going to give these a try, or make my husband make them for me this weekend. :)
Also, thank you for sharing your honesty about life and parenting. I am right there with you. My twins are 9 and I have a 18 month old. I told myself that after having twins, one kid will be a piece of cake! Yeah, not so much! This little guy doesn’t sleep well and keeps me super busy. Some days are so overwhelming, especially while I’m trying to blog and create recipes. I can say that it does get better. My 9 year olds are fantastic. I’d say around the age of 5 life got so much easier with them. :)

Reply

Angela Liddon May 11, 2017

Hey Nora, Twins–I can only imagine! It’s funny you said things got easier around 5 years of age. My mom has been telling me 4/5 is the magic age…haha. Mommy’s little helper kicks in? I already notice things getting a bit easier with Adriana now that she’s moving closer to 3. Two to 2.5 was probably the hardest so far. Good luck with your 18 month old…we found 16 months was when things started to get really challenging with our first; it’ll be interesting to see how Arlo is around the same age! They all have such unique personalities. We can already tell that he’s more active/squirmy/into things than his big sister was. ;) Okay I’m rambling now, but just wanted to say thanks for your support. We got this!

Hey Angela,
Super impressed you’ve done anything work related at all with two littles. Did you try using sprouted spelt in this recipe during your testing? Was thinking of using 50/50 with white.

Reply

Angela Liddon May 10, 2017

Hi Sarah, I haven’t had a chance to try a 50/50 spelt/white trial yet, but I do think it could work. Since spelt tends to be a “wetter” flour when mixed, you might need to use more spelt flour if the dough is too sticky. A good place to start might be searching for spelt cinnamon rolls online and seeing if those look okay, heh.

Best. Cinnamon. Buns. Ever.
I was soooo lucky to be able to test this recipe! I was happily surprised to discover that the hands-on time was tiny (about 25 mins for me baking with 5 toddlers…seriously!) and the steps, though they seem a lot, are each short and so simple.

My family members, daycare children and daycare mommies melted when they ate these. I made them a second time just 4 short days later when my nephew came to visit…he is a chef and has a *ahem* selective palate yet I discovered him eating these in my kitchen at 3am!! He loved them, too. Fluffy, caramelized, sweet with a tangy-sweet glaze…oh my gosh!

We’ll be whipping these up a third time for Mother’s Day…my children can pop them in the oven when we ( or just they!) wake up on Sunday :) I love that the recipe makes so much…10 large cinnamon rolls.

Angela Liddon May 11, 2017

Thank you Nicole, for all your amazing testing! I’m so glad they’ve been such a hit with everyone (including a chef to boot). We’re making these on Saturday in advance of Mother’s Day…I can’t wait to enjoy these in bed!! lol.

Yes, these are Mother’s day for my mom (and me!)!

For the daycare mommies, I’ll be baking up your Chocolate Chunk Cookies with their little ones tomorrow, tying them with a bow and packaging them in some pretty tissue paper + gift bag. They always love this cookie so it’s sure to be a hit!

Hi Angela,

Thank you for sharing your stories about parenting on Instastories. Your trip story was especially comforting for me as I had just returned from a challenging trip to Mexico myself.

Hey Sarah, Aw, I’m so happy that you took comfort in my story (but so sorry that you had a tough trip too!). Traveling with little ones is so hard, and defeating at times.

This looks great! Wondering if they can be modified to be gluten free? Would you just replace the flour with an all purpose gluten free flour or would a rice flour work better?

Reply

Angela Liddon May 9, 2017

Hi Jillian, I haven’t tested it myself, so I’m not sure how that would go. It can be tricky making swaps in vegan baking, and even trickier when you go gluten-free, too. I imagine you’d have better luck with an all-purpose gluten-free flour than rice flour, though. If you experiment, please report back! I’d love to hear what you try and how it goes. And if I test anything in the future, I’ll report back, too. :)

I tried making a gluten free version with rice flower and the results are not ideal. I didn’t make any other substitutions. The rolls didn’t rise much during the second rising and they didn’t change in size after baking them. Basically they look like a cooked version of the rolls right after you cut them.
Next time I’m going to try it out with all-purpose gluten free flour, unless you have any suggest.

Reply

Angela Liddon May 31, 2017

Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear that swap didn’t work out. :( It can definitely be tricky making substitutions in vegan baking, and even trickier when you go gluten-free on top of that. I suspect you’ll have better luck with an all-purpose gluten-free flour. If you try it out, please let me know how it goes. Good luck!

Welcome back! These look delicious. I’ve never braved making cinnamon rolls but I might try these! Any vegan butter recommendations besides Earth Balance? (Trying to avoid palm oil.) Would the measurement need to change if using butter instead?

I’ve passed your latest book on to both of my aunts, and they adore it like I do. Most recently I made your chia jam with strawberries and used some of it in your breakfast oat bars. I really appreciate the time you’ve put in to the blog, your recipes, and your cookbooks. Take care!

Hey Kate,
Thanks for the cookbook and recipe love! I’m so happy you and your aunts are loving them. As for vegan butter, I’ve been testing a homemade version (unfortunately, it’s not ready to share yet). I don’t know of a palm oil free store-bought version, but maybe someone else does. :)

Yes! (If you’re in the states) you can find Miyoko’s palm oil free vegan butter at many health food stores. I also saw it at Trader Joe’s.

I made these for Mother’s Day with Miyoko’s butter from Trader Joe’s, and I think they turned out really well. I haven’t made them with Earth Balance so can’t compare the two, but I thought mine were great!

I’m pretty sure Earth Balance has a palm oil free version , though I’m not sure it’s soy free…

I was thinking that coconut oil might be a good sub for the vegan butter, although maybe that is too similar to palm oil.

hah thanks Gaby!! I’m planning on doing a bit of a life update (with 2 kids and how things have been) in the near future. :)

Yep, you have your hands full. I just had baby #3 last week, a boy this time and forgot about the whole “sleep” problem. He wakes up every hour, haha!!! Whoever coined the phrase “sleeps like a baby” was off base. Way not true! Babies don’t sleep. hehe. It’s amazing how a 7 pound human can keep a whole household up every night. Having said that…..I think this is why we need little treats. I NEED yummy food when getting no sleep. It’s the only thing that gets me through the day with 3 busy kids to take care of and this sleepless (but adorable!!!!!!) newborn in my life.
