4 cups of flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 stick vegan butter, melted
1 cup Light Vanilla 8th Continent Soymilk
1/3 cup orange juice
flour for kneading
1 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp vegan butter, melted
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups raw walnuts, minced
2-3 Tbsp crushed walnuts
2-3 Tbsp vegan butter, melted
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp maple syrup drizzled
8 ounce vegan cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 Tbsp vegan butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all wet ingredients for dough in medium bowl. In another bowl combine all dry ingredients for dough.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly while mixing thoroughly between each addition. Once all dry ingredients are combined with wet ingredients, knead the dough until it forms into a ball.
Sprinkle flour on a large surface and transfer ball of dough.
Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough in a rectangular shape until it is about 1/2″ thick.
In a medium bowl, mix together all filling ingredients. Once thoroughly mixed, distribute the filling evenly atop the dough.
Carefully lift one end of the rectangle and roll the dough, with the filling inside, until you have reached the other end.
Once the dough is all rolled up, cut into sections about an inch to an inch and a half wide.
Take a deep-dish glass pie dish and grease with vegan butter and put your cinnamon rolls in the dish with swirl side facing up. Combine all topping ingredients except for maple syrup and crumble atop the cinnamon rolls. Drizzle the maple syrup on top of the crumbs and put dish in oven.
Bake the dish for about 30 minutes, while the dish is baking- make the frosting!
Combine all the ingredients for the frosting. Blend with hand mixer. Chill until ready to serve.
After 30 minutes, remove dish from oven and allow the cinnamon rolls to cool.
Make your pot of coffee now!
Put a cinnamon roll on a dish, drizzle with the citrus frosting, pour yourself some hot coffee or a nice cold glass of 8th Continent Soymilk and enjoy!
