Cinnamon rolls.

I made some delicious vegan cinnamon rolls yesterday, and now they're all eaten up.

(before they were baked)

Here is the recipe in case any of you would like to make some.

125 grams of vegetable margarine
2,5 deciliters of soya milk
25 grams of yeast
0,5 deciliters of raw cane sugar
9 deciliters of spelt flour (I usually let half the amount be full grain spelt)

cinnamon, vegetable margarine and sugar for the filling.

1. Melt the margarine in a pot, and add the milk when melted.
2. Add the liquid to the yeast, which you've crumbled. Mix well.
3. Add the sugar, and the flour and mix. Knead the dough.
4. Let the dough rise for about an hour.
5. Divide the dough in two and roll it out with a rolling pin.


6. Smear butter and strew cinnamon and sugar onto the dough.
7. Start rolling it together on the longest side, and then cut into 4 cm rolls with a knife.
8. Put the rolls on a baking paper and let rest for a few minutes. At the same time, put the oven on 200 degrees C.
9. Bake for around 12 minutes, and voilà!

Of course, if you don't want to make vegan cinnamon rolls, the soya milk and vegetable margarine can be replaced with ordinary milk and margarine. The same goes for the sugar and the flour - use white, refined sugar and white wheat flour if you want!

(There is something wrong with my camera, which is why these pictures aren't the best. For some reason the image doesn't show on the camera screen when I take pictures - but it does show when I click to view it. So frustrating.)
