A wonderful favorite for us at holiday-time. Always a delight cooked fresh Christmas morning!



Bread Dough

  • approximately 4 1/25 c organic all purpose white (or bread) flour
  • 1 pkg dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 c warm water
  • Dissolve dry yeast in the warm water with the sugar and 1/4 cup of flour. Mix and let sit for about 15 minutes to proof (it will start to form bubbles).
  • Add 2 cups flour and combine until it is manageable to kneed on a floured surface. Working the dough, gradually add enough flour (approx 1 1/22 more cups) to form a soft dough that is not sticky. If you have never done this before, it should feel a little like an ear lobe.


  • 3 tbs melted earth balance butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs white sugar


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup earth balance or other vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)


  1. Make topping by putting sugar butter and water in a sauce pan over moderate heat.
  2. When butter melts, bring to a boil and boil 5 minutes, stirring frequently; reduce heat slightly if syrup boils up too high.
  3. Pour into a 9×13 inch pan or 10 inch round cake pan or baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle nuts evenly over syrup. It will begin to firm up.
  5. Roll the dough out to a 9×14 rectangle on lightly floured surface.
  6. Combine the sugar, cinnamon and butter and spread it evenly over the dough (I usually use a small brush).
  7. Starting from one long side, roll the dough up like a jellyroll, pinching to seal the outside edge.
  8. Cut into 12-16 slices and arrange evenly over topping. Do not worry about spaces.
  9. Place the pan in a warm place and allow the dough to rise until doubled in volume (40-60 minutes).
  10. Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
  11. Bake about 30 minutes until buns are medium brown.
  12. Let stand 3-5 minutes*, then invert onto a platter or sheet of foil.


  • * Don’t let them sit too long as the topping will start to harden as it cools!
  • These freeze and reheat well.
