Amazing Cinnimon Buns

So today was a sad day. We packed and said good-by to my sister-in-law and family who are moving to the east coast. Great opportunity for them, but sad to loose family/friends nearby. I made these up last night so we could have something yummy to eat as the truck was packed.

These aren’t exactly vitamin pills but they are still much healthier than other store-bought options. They have several things going for them:

1. They take time to make so I only make them once in a while.
2. All fresh ingredients and no added preservatives
3. Vegan
4. Usually trans fat-free (I used margarine sticks in these because I had some I needed to use up. I usually substitute canola oil and water)
5. The house smells good 🙂

I loosely follow the ‘Better Homes and Gardens. New Baking Book” page 378
Mix well 1 cup of soy milk with 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt
In another bowl mix 2-3 cups flour with 1 tbsp yeast. Add wet to dry and mix. Mix and add flour until dough is nice and soft and not sticky. Let rise for 1 hour. Roll out to about 1/3 inch thick. Spread on brown sugar and cinnamon (as much as you want). Roll up. Slice. Put in greased dish. Let rise for another 30-45 min (or put in the fridge covered with plastic wrap overnight). Bake at 375 for 20 min covered with foil, then take the foil off for 5-10 min (depending on your oven). Enjoy!
