Vegan cinnamon buns

  

Easily the best cinnamon buns that I’ve ever had! The recipe is slightly time consuming, but trust me, they are well worth all the time and energy. Let a non-vegan try one and I promise you they will ask, “Are these really vegan?” at least five times. Enjoy!

Recipe from VegWeb:

Dough:
    4 1/2 to 4 3/4 cups flour (up to 1/2 may be whole wheat)
    1 tablespoon gluten (optional, but especially useful if using the whole wheat flour)
    1 package active dry yeast
    1 1/2 cups warm water (or soy milk)
    1/2 cup mashed cooked potato (I use instant potato flakes and water to equal 1/2 cup)
    1/3 cup melted margarine (I use Earth Balance)
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon salt

    Filling:
    1/2 cup softened margarine
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon (or more to taste)
    Icing:
    2 tablespoon softened margarine
    lots of powdered sugar
    a dash of soy milk
