Overnight Salted Caramel Glazed Cinnamon Rolls

Next on the list of things I wish I was doing at this very moment in time: laying in bed with my penguin pyjammas blasting some Bruce Springsteen and getting my fingers sticky from all the cinnamon roll eating.

Also on the list: travelling around Europe and attending to alllll the concert.

Actual list of things I’m supposed to do as soon as possible if I don’t want to have my “responsible adult” card taken away:

  • Laundry. Help. How is this that all my socks and tights seem to multiply while sitting in the laundry basket. Like, how come I have nothing to wear except for that awful time when laundry is due and the basket is magically filled with clothes and clothes???? Science explain this!!!!
  • Maths revision. Would any of you guys be interested in signing a petition to abolish maths? Pretty please with a happy puppy on top because I know no one can say no to those lovely puppy eyes????

  • Meal-prepping: ‘Cause I’ve got the feeling that living on peanut butter and weetabix can’t be that good. Unless it’s good for your soul we’re talking about, then yes, my soul is all happy dancing around because PEANUT BUTTER AH YUMMMMM do I need to say more?
  • Food culture assignments: like, zillions of them. How. Fun. Not.
  • overnight salted caramel glazed cinnamon rolls (vegan)
  • Tidy my room: Can anyone send one of those Harry Potter elves to do all the work for me? I promise I’m a good owner and I’ll have them over for tea and cinnamon rolls. 

Just kidding on the responsible adult card thing. It’s been monthssss since I got it taken away #busystudentlyf #foreverlivingonbeerandpbsandwiches.

But let’s focus on all the good things that mother nature and our beautiful world has to offer. Like fluffy, caramel glazed cinnamon rolls among others. “Others” being Game of Thrones actors in this case.

Have you guys already planned which breakfast you’ll be making for Christmas morning? I’m sure that most of you have, since you’re way, way, way more reliable and responsible than yours truly. But fear not, those of you who like to living on the edge, I have a recipe to save us all!

Let me introduce you to these incredibly fluffy cinnamon rolls. Not only are the vegan (not that you could tell by the awesome texture!), but also super easy to make. Like, you guys can make them the night before with almost no effort, leave them to rise while you sleep dreaming of alllll the pressies and wake up to the smell of freshly baked cinnamon goodness.

How fabulous is that?

I agree that they might not be the healthiest vegan treat around, but it’s never bad to treat yourself. Especially when treats come in the form of fluffy, pillowy, airy goodness glazed with sweet caramel.

I kid you not when I say that these are the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever made (and boyyyyyy I’ve made and eaten A LOT). So, if you want to impress and treat your family (or maybe have a 12 cinnamon rolls party with yourself which would be awesomesauce let’s face it!), don’t hesitate to give these a go. You don’t need any kind of weird vegan ingredients and they’re incredibly easy to knead and take care of.

Let me know if you give them a go!

    Plain cinnamon rolls are great, but with salted caramel glaze?? Even better! Love the pomegranate seeds as decoration, so pretty 🙂

    These look absolutely amazing! I am planning on making these on Christmas morning, I just have a few of questions, I’ve never baked bread before. When you are forming the two rectangles – roughly how big and thick should these be? Do you roll the rectangles out with a rolling pin or just stretch them out with your hands? And when cutting the rolled dough into pieces, how thick should these pieces be?

      Hi Sierra!

      Thanks a million! So happy you like them 🙂
      They’re super easy to make so I think you’ll have no problem!

      I didn’t measure the thickness of the dough… but maybe it should be as thick as a thumb? I used a rolling pin btw!
      Regarding the pieces, about 1.5 – 2 inches should be great!

      Best of luck and happy holidays! xxx

    Oh my gosh. These look amazing! I’m so glad I found you through instagram! (Let me tell you your pics are gorgeous!) Out of curiosity do you think one could make these gluten-free as well?

      Hi Maxi!! So happy you like them! *-*
      I’ve never baked anything gf with yeast so I’m not sure 🙁 maybe you can try searching a vegan gf recipe on pinterest? xxx

    Hola Consuelo! These look delicious, I can’t wait to try it! I just have one question, could I replace the vegan butter with anything else, olive oil maybe? xx

    • Reply Consuelo January 27, 2016 at 12:29 pm

      I’d say coconut oil would be a best choice texture-wise, but I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t vouch for that 100% 🙁 xxx
