  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast

  • 2 tbsp cinnamon powder

Ingredients for the icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • ½` teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a bowl add warm almond milk, melted butter, sugar, and whisk nicely.
  • Add some dry active yeast to the above mixture, mix well and let it rest for around 5 minutes.
  • Once the yeast gets activated, add 5 cups of flour and salt to the mixture and make a dough by mixing everything with a spatula. Cover with a plastic sheet and let the dough rest for around 1 hour at a warm corner
  • After one hour the dough will almost double in size. Punch it back, add remaining ½ cup of flour, knead and make a rectangular dough sheet with the help of a rolling pin. The sheet should be around ½ inch thick.

  • Lift the edge of the sheet from one side and start rolling it.
  • Smoothen the roll with your hands and then cut equal sized swirls from that roll.
  • Nicely grease a cake pan with vegan butter and arrange the swirls inside it. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for around 25 minutes or till the swirls turn golden brown.
  • Once done, take out the cake pan and let the rolls reach room temperature.
  • To prepare the icing, add all the ingredients under icing in a bowl and mix until it becomes a smooth paste.
  • Pour the icing on top of cinnamon rolls. Serve warm with tea/ coffee.
