Molasses Cinnamon Rolls

No need for an intervention, I swear I have a legitimate reason for making all these sinfully delicious yeast based baked goods lately. The next 2 weeks we will be having visitors. Last I heard, this coming weekend, our friends Star and Lepley are coming up for a bike race and also to help our friend Hank move up here. Star is also a vegan. Her and I have already been discussing what goodies we want to make. I'm hoping to nab her sugar cookie recipe.
THEN, the weekend after this, my dad and step mom, Delia, are coming up. WOO WHOOO!
SO, you see, I had to test out these cinnamon rolls. Right? Yep.
For these treats, I made my crazy bread dough except I put in approximately 2 tbsp of molasses with the slurry and palm oil instead of olive oil. Once the dough had risen once, I rolled out the dough to probably around a half inch thickness, brushed a little bit of melted Earth Balance and sprinkled a sugar/cinnamon mixture on the rolled out dough. I then rolled the dough up into a log and cut the log into 12 spirals. I placed the spirals in a pan (with cooking spray) and let them rise again. They were baked at 350 degrees for what seemed like forever (it was probably around 20-30 minutes) and then poured an icing I made with a couple of tbsp powdered sugar, a splash of soy milk and more cinnamon.
Right out of the oven without icing:

Those look so much better than the ones I just made! I'm sure all your various guests will LOVE visiting you, even if you don't make delicious treats like those....

you were actually my inspiration to try these out. i think palm oil might be the trick. kept them nice and moist.

OoOh! Yummy! These look delicious. I'm not usually a big fan of cinnamon rolls, as I can not stand the thick sugary coating they're most often topped with. But these, these look perfect. I might just have to make some.... Thanks for sharing.

VeggieGirl said...

those cinnamon rolls don't look real!! haha, the swirl is magnificent!!

the pleasantly plump vegan said...

hehe, I assure you VeggieGirl, they are real! The trick is to roll the log tight . . . More swirls that way.

Carolann said...

Cinnamon rolls! I had not thought to use molasses! Looks great!

Vegan_Noodle said...

Well of course you have to test out treats before serving them to company ;-) Those cinnamon rolls look awesome. I'm thinking they would be the perfect treat this Sat morning.... Thanks for posting!

urban vegan said...

Can you please email me a cinnamon bun? (maybe someday, right?)

Katie said...

Wow, all your food looks amazing, especially those cinnamon rolls!

Leah said...

I'm -dying- to try that out. I nearly faint passing the Cinnabon in the mall because it smells so good and have been meaning to try an animal-free version myself. This is good motivation to get myself in the kitchen and start experimenting!

Celine said...

omg, these are PERFECTION!

Kate said...

Thanks for the visit. Awesome cinnamon rolls!

Freedom said...

Hey there, your blog is awesome, I just discovered it the other day and read the whole thing through since you started it! And those cinnamon rolls do look absolutely amazing!
I don't want to sound critical AT ALL, but when I saw the words palm oil I just had to comment... many people don't realise that although it isn't an animal product, palm oil is not animal friendly. Orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra are the worst affected - their natural habitat is completely destroyed, usually burnt to the ground, in order for palm plantations to be planted. The workers at these plantations usually receive bonuses if they catch baby orangutans, which are sold to spend miserable lives locked up as someones pet... usually the mother orangutans are shot or bludgeoned to death. Orangutans that are not killed directly face a high chance of starving to death; also, habitat loss means that males fight more and breed less, compounding problems. These orangutans are critically endangered and using palm oil only contributes to the problem. Sadly, most people don't even realise this!

Sorry for such a rant, but I am so passionate about this cause!

Veganista said...

Wow, those look amazing. They're bringing back memories of a childhood spent amongst excellent cinnamon roll bakers! (My mother not in that group, alas. :)) Nicely done...

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

Oooh, they look SO good! I need to try my hand at cinnamon rolls one of these days!

the pleasantly plump vegan said...

thanks everyone for yr comments. the cinnamon rolls were a hit in our house!

Kumudha said...

looks delicious!

Jackie Vetter said...

Lori: we made these rolls, they were delicious. The second time we made them with whole wheat pastry flour, they were very good, different texture, but still very good.

I've linked to you from my site. I'd love to invite you to take a look.

Thank you for the beautiful dishes you create.

I'm in a love/hate relationship with virtual memory because of the way prices are always,and I mean always falling. I absolutely hate buying SDs for my R4 / R4i at (seemingly) a bargain price only to see it become ten percent cheaper a couple of weeks later.

How does this relate to a core competency - the ability to deduce information from what one is given and to ask insightful questions - to the future? When we who have supplied the answers from our years of experience are gone, how will others learn to puzzle out the answers - or even the additional questions - with no one to ask? Will they - you - be able to ask the questions because of a deeper understanding of an industry's history or a general curiosity? And for today, how will you - we - be able to puzzle out a situation, say, on site, when there is no one to ask? How will your critical thinking skills be amassed now to use later?
