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.
