Cinnamon spice is the ingredient that gives the roll its distinctive flavor. Today we will share with you veganized cinnamon roll recipes in the Classic Style and the German Style Franzbrötchen.

Let’s first make the sourdough Starter. The sourdough will help to enhance the flavor, make the texture finer, improve the elasticity, and make it chewier.

For the cinnamon roll dough, we will mix the wet ingredients first. We’ll use the sourdough starter in this recipe, you may use less or no instant yeast, but it will require a longer time to ferment. Next, we mix the dry ingredients. We will use 50 grams of sourdough, which has been sitting for about 5 hours. Now tear it into small pieces. Stir and mix well. Next, add the wet ingredients we prepared earlier. Add just a portion at a time and keep stirring till the dough mixture is well mixed.

We will now prepare the vegan cinnamon filling powder. Firstly, sift 55 grams of vegan dark brown sugar to remove any clumps. Now add six grams of sifted cinnamon powder, followed by 15 grams of vegan sugar powder. Stir and mix the ingredients well, then set aside for later use.

This is the fermented dough, which has now expanded to twice its original size. The dough is ready when it is smooth, holds its shape, and does not stick to the hands or the kneading surface. Then shape the dough into an elongated roll. Cover the dough and leave it to rest for five minutes. Roll and shape the dough into a rectangle of about 20 by 40 centimeters. Apply an even layer of vegetable oil on the rolled-out dough, leaving one centimeter on the rightmost edge free of the oil. Sprinkle the cinnamon filling powder, which we prepared earlier, evenly over the entire rectangular dough, except for the unoiled area at the rightmost edge. Gently roll the dough into a cylindrical shape, starting from the left side to the right.

We can now cut the filled dough roll into eight equal parts using a cotton thread, starting from the center of the roll. Place each cut roll onto a baking tray. Bake the rolls for 18 minutes in a preheated oven, with temperatures at the top and bottom of the oven set at 180°C. Now, our delicious Classic Style Vegan Cinnamon Rolls are ready!
