On to our 2nd week of vegan recipes and I have so many ideas for posts! I love baking this way as it can be so different from “regular” baking. It is different chemistry and different ingredients. Today it will Apple Pie Vegan Rolls.
I sound like such nerd, but I am!
These rolls, oh my gosh, they are good with their sweet and pillowy dough stuffed with cubes of sweet and flavourful apple. With the addition of a couple of dates, the rolls take on a caramel flavor which is just irresistible. These rolls are perfect for a seasonal breakfast or even as a filling snack, especially on a cold day (Scotland is freezing right now!)
Another plus is that this bread is so easy to make, you could do it in your sleep. These rolls are really made up of 2 steps, the dough, and the filling and they are both oh-so-simple.
Normally, a sweet yeasted bread recipe like a cinnamon roll or like these gorgeous rolls requires a basic bread dough with the addition of fat and sugar, normally a combination of milk, eggs, butter, and sugar. However, as these rolls are vegan, I had to rethink the recipe. Instead of regular milk, I used some soy milk but any other non-dairy milk can be used; I just like soy milk! Instead of the eggs, I actually left out a substitute ingredient and the bread turned out perfect! Butter was replaced with oil and less of it and the bread was so tender and soft, just how I wanted it to be.
Also, I snuck in a little brown flour to add some extra fiber and nutrition.
As well as being so delicious, these rolls are even a little bit better for you than the original versions!
Sorry about the lack of pictures in this post, I uploaded the pictures onto my computer and then it crashed and all of the rolls were eaten so I couldn’t get any more pictures.
Anyway, these are so tasty and easy to make with the lovely autumnal flavors, perfect for this time of year, enjoy!
