Rectangle Baking Dish
- 2 cups Self Rising Flour *
- 1¼ cup coconut yogurt *
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil or plant butter *
- ½ tbsp melted coconut oil or plant butter for brushing before the oven
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp almond milk *
Step one. Combine the yogurt with the self rising yeast. This part will be messy if you are using your hands to knead the dough. The dough will be sticky, have a bowl of the flour nearby and use a small amount in your hands to help get the dough off your hands, stick together and form a ball in a ceramic or glass bowl. Let the dough sit, covered with a damp towel for about 10 minutes if you can. This will help the rolling process greatly!
Step two. Set Oven to 350 degrees. Flour your surface and gently roll the dough out. It will be stickier than most doughs since we aren't using yeast. So be gentle with the rolling pin. Form a large rectangle. if you can, using your hands lightly spread a little more flour over the top and flip it over.
Step three. Melt the coconut or vegan butter. In a small bowl whisk sugar and cinnamon together. Pour coconut or butter or the dough. I use my hands to quickly spread it but you can bush it. Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over the coconut oil dough. Gently roll the mixture up into one long roll of dough. You may need a spatula to help move things along if it sticks a little to your surface. Just be patient and gentle with the dough!
Step four. Cut the Dough into 6 - 8 rolls and line them together touching in an 6 x 8 or similar size baking dish. Brush the tops of the rolls with more coconut oil or melted vegan butter. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
For icing: Whisk 1 cup of powdered sugar (confectioner sugar) with 2 tablespoons almond milk.
