Cooking time




  • Dough
  • 1 cup soya milk

  • 1/3 cup dairy-free margarine

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 90ml water and 1 tablespoon active yeast

  • 4 cups flour and ½ teaspoon salt

  • Filling
  • ¾ cup soft brown sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  • ½ cup margarine and ¾ cup walnuts


  • Heat milk, water, margarine/plant butter and sugar in a medium-sized pot until the margarine is melting.
  • Tip into a large bowl. Check that the mix is warm, not hot, and stir in the yeast. (If hot, let it sit before adding the yeast.)
  • Add flour and salt and stir well.
  • Tip it out on to a floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Put it back in the bowl in a warm place and allow to rise until doubled in size (1 or 2 hours).
  • Punch the dough down and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix all the filling ingredients together.
  • Roll the dough into a 30cm square (for 8 large rolls) or a 30cm x 60cm rectangle (for 16 more moderate rolls).
  • Spread filling evenly across the dough. Roll the dough up (from the long side, if you’ve made a rectangle) and pinch the seam to seal.
  • Slice into pieces, and set on a lined baking tray.
  • Put the tray in a warm place for about an hour, until doubled in size.
  • They’re now ready to bake in a preheated 180C oven for about 30 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped
