Hmmm, Cinnamon Rolls

Posted by Casey on April 15, 2007

All you vegans out there can relate to this story.

I became a vegan in April 2004 (after being a vegetarian for 30 years) and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done in my life and I can’t imagine ever going back to being a vegetarian . . . but . . . there’s always a but . . . I joined herds of other vegans in search of a vegan cinnamon roll that rivaled T.J. Cinnamon’s or Cinnabon.

I have had only one cinnamon roll since April 2004–one that a friend sent for my birthday last year. It was good for a packaged variety of roll . . . but . . . but there’s something about a freshly baked roll dripping with brown sugar, cinnamon and icing.

Well, this same friend sent me a book called Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World for my last birthday.


Well, I started baking these cupcakes (I’m addicted to the chocolate ones with mint icing) and impressed non-vegans with how light and moist cakes can be without eggs or dairy milk.

Then yesterday, a rainy day, I got bored late in the afternoon and decided to conquer a vegan cinnamon roll recipe I had found on the Internet. Fortunately, I had bought the ingredients for the rolls at the same time I shopped for the cupcake ingredients, so I was good to go.

My verdict. Yum. My cinnamon roll quest is over.

    so…did you put raisins in these? Otherwise, they aren’t complete rolls.

    I’m a purest. I don’t want anything to get between the brown sugar, cinnamon, glaze, and my taste buds. Of course, you’re one of the few people who can actually come over and try them for yourself. You’ll have to bring your own raisins.
