Cinnamon Buns

Breakfast


Ingredients:

¾ cup non-dairy milk

1 packet active yeast

3 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 tbsp baking powder

¼ cup raw sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

6 tbsp unsweetened applesauce

4 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp raisins (optional)

1 cup confectioners sugar

1 tsp non-dairy milk

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease a circular cake pan and set aside.

Gently warm 3/4 cup non-dairy milk to about 110 degrees. Sprinkle yeast over warmed non-dairy milk and let it dissolve, about 5 minutes.

Combine 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 salt in a large bowl. Add 5 tbsp applesauce and yeast mixture, stirring spatula to combine. Add in another 1/2 cup flour, stirring to combine. Sprinkle remaining flour on a flat surface and knead dough, kneading in most of the flour.

Knead about 15-20 times. Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough out into large, thin rectangle and set aside.

Prepare filling by combining 4 tbsp brown sugar with 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce, 1 tsp cinnamon and raisins if using. Spoon filling in the center of the dough and spread it around, leaving 1” edge clear. Gently but tightly roll the dough up.

Use a pizza cutter, sharp knife or string to cut off 6 rolls and place into prepared cake pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, prepare icing by mixing 1 cup confectioners sugar with 1 tsp non-dairy milk (plain or vanilla), whipping until it becomes a thick glaze with no sugar chunks. Spread glaze over hot buns.
