VEGAN CINNAMON ROLLS | hot for food


[lauren] snickle! [lauren] hey everyone it’s lauren from hot for food and today we’re gonna make something special for mother’s day. [lauren] it’s coming up this weekend so i thought i would show you how to make [lauren] vegan cinnamon rolls. [lauren] it’s very easy to whip up the dough and the rolls the night before. leave them in the fridge. [lauren] and then bake them on sunday morning and your mum can awake to the scent [lauren] of cinnamon rolls filling the house. [lauren] so we’re gonna start by making the dough! [lauren] so i have a cup of water here that’s hot, umm you can either get warm water from your tap [lauren] or i just had like my instant hot water so i’m just gonna stir it [lauren] let it get down to about a 100F [lauren] that is the temperature of the water that you’re gonna need for your active dry yeast. [lauren] so you can buy these yeast packets at the grocery store, they’re already pre measured. [lauren] you’re gonna use one packet, and dump it into the water once it’s a 100F [lauren] and then add a quarter cup of sugar. [lauren] so you’re gonna let the sugar, water and yeast sit for ten minutes and it’s gonna foam up. [lauren] if it’s too hot, what’s gonna happen is you’re gonna kill your yeast, [lauren] and it won’t foam up and it won’t rise the dough. [lauren] now, everyone’s gonna ask “do i have to add sugar?” [lauren] yes, you have to add sugar because that’s what activates the yeast. [lauren] if you don’t do that, it’s not gonna do anything. [lauren] so measure out three cups of flour, [lauren] alright, and then stir in a teaspoon of salt. [lauren] once you have this stirred together, just make a little well in the bottom like this, it’s where you’re gonna pour the liquid. [lauren] so now we’ll add that to the flour. [lauren] and then add your melted coconut oil. [lauren] so now you’re gonna fold this together until it’s just mixed. and then knead it together with your hands. [lauren] okay and then once you feel like it’s sticky, just take it all and put it onto the counter, [lauren] and then you’re only gonna knead it a few times until it looks like it’s well mixed and it’s sticky. [lauren] so once it’s a ball of dough, just take a little bit of coconut oil, [lauren] i have some leftover in the pot i melted in. [lauren] and just oil the bowl lightly, so that the dough doesn’t stick. [lauren] and then you’re gonna take your ball of dough and place it in the bowl, [lauren] cover it with plastic and a tea towel and you’re gonna let this proof for two hours. [lauren] i put mine in the oven, but you can put it in a cupboard or top of the fridge. [lauren] don’t turn your oven on, it’s just like not room temperature. [lauren] when you’re ready to make the filling and roll out your dough you’re gonna melt two tablespoons of coconut oil. [lauren] and then mix together a quarter cup of sugar with a tablespoon of cinnamon. [lauren] and here it is! so it should double in size, [lauren] you’re just gonna remove it from this bowl, [lauren] and it won’t stick cos you oiled it. [lauren] and then place it on a lightly floured surface. [lauren] and have a good large working surface like this, [lauren] so you’re gonna flour your rolling pin so it doesn’t stick. [lauren] and just start rolling this out. [lauren] this dough’s actually very easy to work with, it should be soft. [lauren] so you just wanna go lengthwise and forward and backwards so you could try to get this into a square. [lauren] as best as possible. [lauren] anyway just make sure it doesn’t stick by putting some flour underneath like this, [lauren] okay so this could even be vegan butter or margarine instead of coconut oil [lauren] so leave one inch clean without oil or sugar because when we roll this, [lauren] that’s gonna be the outside edge that will stick to the outside of the roll. [lauren] okay so you can be generous with this but make sure you use all of it. [lauren] get it as evenly as you can across the surface. [lauren] so try to roll this pretty tightly [lauren] i like baking mine in a cast iron skillet cos it looks cool. [lauren] in photos but you can bake it in a pan [lauren] umm, whatever you wanna do [lauren] and you’re gonna lightly oil it with coconut oil, or vegan butter or margarine. [lauren] it’s easiest to cut the full log in half, and then each half is six pieces. [lauren] okay so these don’t have to be perfectly even or whatever doesn’t really matter, [lauren] just leave some space, they’re gonna rise and get bigger. [lauren] here’s the thing, at this phase, let it proof for two hours then put it in the fridge if you wanna bake them the next day. [lauren] and then they look like this after they’ve proofed. [lauren] so now you’re gonna bake them for 25-30 minutes at 350F [lauren] the recipe i’ve linked in the description shows you how to make the cinnamon rolls, [lauren] and there’s a vanilla frosting recipe there as well. [lauren] but today i’m gonna show you how to make a caramel sauce [lauren] and we’re gonna put pecans on the top as well. [lauren] the caramel’s super easy, we’re just gonna heat up sugar, non dairy milk, vegan butter and salt [lauren] for 7-8 minutes until it thickens up into a caramel sauce like this. [lauren] i used coconut sugar for this, but you could use brown sugar or even just raw, cane sugar [lauren] it’s fine. i used vegan butter because that’s kinda what caramel is, [lauren] i honestly don’t know if coconut oil would work or not. [lauren] i also just toasted some pecans in the oven with the cinnamon rolls [lauren] and we’re gonna chop those up for the topping [lauren] there they are. our cinnamon rolls with caramel and pecans [lauren] these look so good! [lauren] and they’re still warm, [lauren] so i must do the taste test now. [lauren] no, my mother is not here. why am i using a fork and knife? [lauren] ow, my teeth. [lauren] they’re good, these are a good mother’s day idea for sure. [lauren] mm! [lauren] specifically my mum really likes cinnamon rolls. [lauren] we used to make them all the time, growing up. except we would use the kind that you bought, like [lauren] already in the freezer. so she likes these ones, [lauren] i’ll be making them again on sunday because now i have three dozen batches of cinnamon rolls cos [lauren] obviously i like, premade all of the dough so we didn’t have to sit around for hours waiting for it to proof [lauren] definitely do all that work the day before. do that on saturday and on sunday just bake them, [lauren] add the caramel, and the pecans and you’re done. [lauren] so addictive. [lauren] alright, happy mother’s day everybody and to all the mums out there, thank you! [lauren] thanks for watching, we’ll be back next wednesday with another recipe here on hot for food [lauren] and if you do make these or anything else, [lauren] from our channel, or our blog, hotforfoodblog.com [lauren] make sure you tag us on social media @hotforfood [lauren] and uhh we’ll see you guys soon! bye!

  6. This looks amazing!

  7. girl I CANNOT!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

  8. The yeast I bought says that I can just mix it with the flour without disolving it in water. it works that way?

  9. Could I put some pumpkin purรฉe in these to make them pumpkin cinnamon rools?

  10. has anyone tried to replace the vegan butter with coconut oil/anything else for the caramel sauce? I can't seem to find any vegan butter where I live that's not a 2-hour commute ๐Ÿ™

  11. Hey Lauren! Love your channel and recipes. I was just wondering what your experience has been putting risen cinnamon rolls in the fridge over night to cook in the morning. I just did this and woke up to deflated cinnamon rolls. They still taste delicious and will definitely be eaten, but I wasn't sure if this is something that has happened to you, or if I just fucked something up. Thanks and lots of love ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. check your IG omg delicious …mines are basically sticky buns ..my house has went craaazy ova these

  13. I hope you don't feed your cat vegan…

  14. Can u tell the recipe for 4-6 rolls?

  15. I tried to do this today, and tbh I think it's the most delicious thing I ever made
    btw salted caramel with coconut oil – totally worked!

  16. I made these last night! oh my GOD they were so delicious!!

  17. I made these today. DELICIOUS!!!

  18. have you ever tried it with honey or other sugar other than cane sugar? allergic to cane

  19. i made this and it was sooooo delicious!!! the caramel was fantastic !! my boyfriend and I stuffed our face haha

  20. These are BOMB, easy and tasted like the classic cinnamon buns I missed and enjoyed by all the meat eaters in my family!!! Thanks Lauren <3

  21. I don't use sugar and the yeast still works, at least for pizza dough. The water must be lukewarm and the room must be warm too. But coconut oil… it is such saturated fat ๐Ÿ™ I'm going to replace it with a light olive oil.

  22. don't try to healthy up my desert with them nuts.

  23. Can I replace the coconut oil with olive oil or canola oil? I really want to make these but I don't have coconut oil…

  24. omg just made this.. and i kid u not i could possibly finish the whole batch all by myself .-.

  25. Omg they look amazing. The best I've ever seen.

  26. Can I use another oil like sunflower? Coconut oil is pretty expensive where I live.

  27. can a vegan eat yeast? I mean..

  28. If you don't put sugar in the yeast water mixture it WILL rise ,that's the purpose of the yeast. DONT LIE IF YOU DONT KNOW

  29. omg, THIS! Miss my mom, but she would've LOVED these.

  30. this recipe is 10 outta 10 i just made these and they r sooooooo delicoius

  31. im debating on either making hot for food's or the vegan corner's version of cinnamon rolls. has anyone tried both of them? im sure they're both delicious but i wanna know which one is more worth making

  32. These are amazing! I love the sauce!

  33. You know when you use butter can you use almond butter for taste instead?

  34. Hi! Can I use the same amount of vegan butter for the dough instead of coconut oil? Thanks!

  35. I made these today for Christmas morning. Everyone loved them! Thank you for the recipe!

  36. I wish you had put the NOTE about not putting the rolls overnight in fridge in the description or comments too instead of just at the website CAUSE I JUST FOUND YOUR NOTE AFTER FINDING MY BEAUTIFULLY PROOFED ROLLS DEFLATED IN THE FRIDGE. :'(
    I was going to bring them for New Year's Eve party to impress my non-vegan friends, guess not. :/

  37. can I use nutritional yeast instead?

  38. I am a terrible baker but I just made these and they were better than what I get at the bakery! So fluffy! like biting into a cloud of yumminess! and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Thanks Lauren! You always have great recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. For the caramel can I use margarine? also how far in advance can I make the caramel and if I do how should I store it? ๐Ÿ’•

  40. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑblowing my mind

  41. Can you use vegetable oil instead of coconut oil ?

  42. nggh can I say that I love this but am also cringing at the lack of kneading. You get a better texture by kneading for atleast 10 min. to develop the gluten.

  43. I'm so glad you posted this! I loved cinnamon rolls with caramel before I went vegan and now I can still have them!!!!!

  44. Anyone else get an ad for beef before this video?

  45. thank youuuu…im baking it right now for mom …love your chanel ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  46. is there anyway to make this without yeast?

  47. Hi, could you tell me how long time they shouldย rise? thank you

  48. Without the skillet, sauce and pecans these would be classic vegan swedish cinnamon buns

  49. You should have put cinnamon on the pecans too.

  50. Lauren I just made these! They took five hours to make but they are BOMB!!

  51. how can you eat yeast its alive i thought u were vegan

  52. I made these and ate like half the tray

  53. Hi, can I use another kind of vegetable oil instead of coconut oil?…. Thank you

  54. How much is the yeast? I have a big packet and I don't know how much to use :c helpp

  55. does anyone know if the sauce works if you substitute the butter for coconut oil??

  56. OMG. I'm hosting a brunch in two weeks and have been on the hunt for awesome vegan recipes that the carnivores won't complain about, and I'm pretty sure these are going to be a fucking hit. Yes!

  57. I made these with my 4 year old daughter and it was so much fun! they came out perfect! We have an abundance of oranges right now so we used some fresh squeezed oj+confectioners sugar to make a nice little orange glaze for the tops! AMAZING as always ๐Ÿ™‚

  58. I'm transitioning to a vegan diet. I'm happy to see recipes like these because I'm worried about losing all the foods I love becoming vegan. Thanks for sharing. I will have to make these!

  59. Are there any qualms for some vegans eating yeast?

  60. No, adding sugar doesn't activate yeast…heat does.

  61. Looks so good, I'm going to try this soon!!

  62. can I use vegetable oil instead of coconut oil

  63. i love h4f and this recipe
    one question
    why is she using 3 stacked bowls at the end loool

  64. "You can make them in the morning!"ย  Takes five hours to make

  65. Wait what's your cat called? Because it looks like you're saying 'sukkel' and in Dutch that means something like 'dimwit'

  66. Can i also use vegan butter in the dough instead of coconut oil

  67. Hey, I think the measurements in the recipe are a little wrong. It says 1 1/2 c warm water but I think you only need one cup cause I just tried it and the dough is really thin. I had to add a ton of flour to make it like a "normal" dough.

  68. "non dairy milk"๐Ÿ˜‚

  69. You mean poofed instead of proofed???

  70. they look fluffy, isn't it?

  71. are they fluffy also the day after?

  72. white sugar is filtered through "char", which is made from burnt animal bones.(char is also used in fish aquariums)

  73. Hey Lauren! I am from Greece and I am fan of your videos! ! I just wanted to ask you, can you tell me what is the quota of the ingredients in grams instead of cups? It would be very helpful for me ! Thanks a lot, keep up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  74. This is my Christmas Eve/Christmas day morning tradition now. They are SO GOOD! I was intimidated at first to try to make this recipe and it is so easy, you just have to plan out the timing a little bit. Thank you @hotforfood!

  75. GUH I LOVE THESE! Just made them for the third time for Christmas morning, except without the caramel sauce this time, and they were still excellent. My sister made the dough last night and accidentally over-kneaded it so the dough rose like CRAZY, but we were able to save it by separating the rolls into two cake pans. The end result was a bit more fluffy than usual but it was kind of nice! So if anyone makes the same mistake, no worries, it's still salvageable ๐Ÿ™‚

  76. I made them so late at night that I prepared the rolls and am considering leaving them overnight before I pop them in the oven.
    Fingers crossed they turn out okay ๐Ÿ™

  77. Can I use gluten-free flour?

  78. I tried to make these and they came out hard but I mightโ€™ve used to much flour to knead and I put it on a higher temperature because I was cooking something else

  79. I'm not vegan but your recipes are just wonderful ! I will try this one for sure โค

  80. These look soooooo good.

    I've made caramel sauce with coconut oil before (i didn't have enough vegan butter) and i doesn't incorporate very well with the sugar so you don't get as smooth of a texture. Defs use butter!

  81. I wish I wasn't so lazy I would totally make these and I will one day

  82. I MADE THESE AND OH MY GOD THEY TASTE AMAZING JUST LIKE CINNABON!!

  83. I am finally trying this recipe!! My dough is proofing right now, hopefully they turn out yummy!

  84. Does anyone know if you can use oat flour or some other kind of flour? ๐Ÿ˜Š

  85. How long do they stay fresh???

  86. it look super amazing but there something not true. You said that if we dont put sugar the yeast will not activate but when i do bread i just put warm water and yeast wait 5 min and you have the same exact result that you had. So its not an obligation to put sugar :). But still the cinnamon rolls look delicious i cant wait to test them ๐Ÿ™‚

  87. Will those work with oat flour too?

  88. I love what you're wearing in this vid

  89. High carb, high sugar, high fat. Now thatโ€™s my kinda food!๐Ÿ˜Š

  90. What is going on with your blog I just need the glaze recipe ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ“ข

  91. What is the name of the jazz musician that was playing while you were pouring the caramel?

  92. i love making these

  93. so I made this recipe today from your cookbook, but I wish I had looked up the video first!! I was lazy and let it proof for 20 minutes, but it did nooooot look like that lol. Making it tonight CORRECTLY and baking them tomorrow for everyone at work because they were so delicious today, I cant wait to see how good they'll be once I do it right lol

  94. Hi! I love the video but I canโ€™t find coconut oil in my country, what can I use instead of that? ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™
