The Best Cinnamon Rolls On The Planet!!

What you need: 

3/4 cup nondairy milk
1/4 cup vegan butter (I use Earth Balance), softened
2 3/4 cups flour, divided
1 (1/4 ounce) pack instant yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup vegan butter (I use Earth Balance), softened

What you do: 

1. Grease a 9x13" pan. In a saucepan, heat the milk and 1/4 cup vegan butter until boiling. Remove from heat and cool until only warm. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast and white sugar. (whisk to get all the lumps out).
2. Add milk/vegan butter mixture to the dry mixture and whisk just until it forms a rough dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Dump dough onto a floured board (or clean counter) and knead in the remaining half cup flour. Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes (pressing up with palms and folding again and again) until the dough is perfectly smooth.
3. Put the dough in a slightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean, slightly damp towel and let it rise for 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle the counter with flour and using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a 9X12" rectangle.
4. Combine 1/2 cup softened margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon and spread over the entire top surface of the rectangle. Start with the long part of the rectangle and roll it up the short side. Using a serrated knife, cut each cinnamon roll about 1" thick.
5. Place cinnamon rolls in prepared pan, cover with a damp towel and let rise for 10-15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. After your cinnamon rolls have risen, bake 15-20 minutes, depending how gooey you like them.
Spread on some vegan icing and you'll be in heaven.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Does nutritional yeast do the same thing? Is there any difference between the two?

Regular yeast is a fungi that makes breads and other baked goods rise when warm water is added. Nutritional yeast is adeactivated form yeast, thus the bread/baked good would not rise if it were used as a substitute.

These were AMAZING!!!! They were fairly easy and even my non-veg brother liked them!! ;D I woulod decrease theamount of fillin next time, though, as it melted out of the bottom and prevented them from baking all the way through.

These were wonderful and surprising simple for cinnamon rolls. I used whole wheat flour, and they turned out great. There was mention of water in the directions but not in the ingredients. I added 1/2 cup hot water when called for and added about 1/4 cup of flour, and it was just fine. I also topped them with caramel sauce from a caramel apple pizza recipe from vegweb.com. Next time I'll probably add chopped pecans! Can't wait!!!

Sorry about that! I get so excited about recipes I forget to type them with details... woops.  It's 1/4 cup of water. :)
