I came up with these at Easter, I couldn’t decide between making something chocolatey or making some cinnamon rolls so decided to combine the two.

Chocolate cinnamon rolls

Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

Recipe as follows:-


3/4 cup soymilk
2 tsp yeast
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tblsp Cocoa
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4tsp salt
4 Tblsp margarine

Heat soymilk until warm, sprinkle with yeast stir and set aside. Combine flour, sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, cocoa and salt. Rub in margarine until breadcrumby – add soymilk then knead and leave to rise (about 40 minutes)

Cinnamon filling

1/3 cup brown sugar
rest of cinnamon
1 Tblsp marg
1 Tblsp flour
about 75g plain choc, grated

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon and flour, rub in margarine then add in grated choc and give it a good mix.

Roll dough out into a rectangle, about 15 x 12 inches. Sprinkle chocolate mixture over dough. Roll up and cut into slices. Put slices in greased tin and leave to rise for about 1/2 an hour. Bake at gas mark 5 for about 20-25 minutes.


icing sugar
vanilla essence
1/2 bar Organica White Chocolate (optional)

Make a thickish glace icing using icing sugar, soymilk and vanilla. I melted half a bar of the organica white choc and added that as I wanted a chocolatey glaze and drizzle abundently over rolls.

Lovely when eaten warm (or hot as in my case when you’re too impatient to wait for them to cool down)


Hello and welcome…

Welcome to my blog, the only vegan in the village – because sometimes that’s how it feels!

Anyway, the food part of this blog is hopefully to show that even if you live in a place where ‘specialized’ vegan foods are somewhat thin on the ground it IS still possible to make beautiful, delicious vegan food.

The other general part of the blog will be entirely food unrelated – just full of crap most probably.
