Vegan Butterflake Rolls

Posted on November 15, 2010 | 22 Comments

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’ve decided to take a quick break from my mostly healthy recipes and bring you something quite the opposite. I spent the better part of the day perfecting these vegan butterflake rolls, and they came out of the oven more buttery, flaky, and delicious than I could have hoped!

Not only do they look great, but once you peel back a few layers and slip in a bit of fresh Earth Balance, they’re downright perfect!

Ingredients (18 rolls)
1 tablespoon yeast
1/8 cup warm water
1 egg replacer (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
1/6 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened, unflavored almond or soy milk
1/2 cup hot water
4 tablespoons Earth Balance at room temperature, plus more for serving
2 1/2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour

A standard sized muffin pan and your preferred rolling device (such as a rolling pin or wine bottle) will be necessary.

Method
In a small dish, mix yeast in warm water until dissolved. In a mixing bowl, Add sugar and salt to pre-mixed egg replacer. Beat in milk and hot water until well-mixed. Add dissolved yeast and beat.

Using a wooden spoon, mix in about 2 1/2 cups of flour, adding more (up to 3 cups) as necessary to make a soft dough. Knead dough a few times.

Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness and spread with a thin layer of butter (it should be about 1 tablespoon). The back of a tablespoon or your fingers work well for spreading. Repeat this 4 more times.

Finally, do not butter after the last fold, but roll into 1/2 inch thickness and cut 1×1 inch squares, and place 3-4 squares upright in each non-stick sprayed muffin tin. Let rise about 45-60 minutes, or until well risen.

Bake in middle rack at 400° F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with a dish of Earth Balance.

    Oh hey! I need to try these. I’m not 100% clear on the rolling and buttering, but I’m assuming it’s roll, butter, fold, roll, butter, fold.

    The last fold? I’m confused.
    Do we fold the dough to get the layers or just roll it?
    Can’t wait to try these! Thank you!
