Sweet Pull Apart Dinner Rolls

Pull apart dinner rolls have always been a favorite of mine, but unfortunately usually they’re full of milk, and even sometimes eggs. They’re truly so easy to veganize though, so I wanted to share them with you! I make these every year around the holidays and I can’t tell you how fast they fly out of the pan.

Here’s what you’ll need to make them!

  • 1 cup regular unsweetened soy milk 
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 5 tbsp organic cane sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter melted & divided 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

And here’s how you make them! Trust me, they’re a whole lot easier than they may sound haha.

  1. Heat your soy milk to 110F & then add in your yeast and 1 tbsp of sugar. Mix well and allow to sit for about 5 minutes until foamy. While this sits, melt 2 tbsp of your butter.
  2. Mix together your flour, salt, and 3 tbsp sugar in a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add your soy milk / yeast mixture & your melted butter into the flour mix. With your hands, gently fold until all of the flour is gone from the bowl and the dough just comes together. 
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Re-flour the surface as necessary. After 10 minutes, re-flour the surface again, form your dough into a ball, place it on the flour and cover with a towel. Let rest for 1 hour until its doubled (or more) in size. 
  5. Butter a baking dish that has at least a 1-2″ lip on the sides. Cut your dough into equal size portions and roll into balls, tucking the dough under itself to create a smooth top. 
  6. Place the dough balls seam side down, touching each other as well as every side of the pan. Cover them and let sit for another hour on top of the stove, or in a warm place to proof again. You want them to expand to the point that they’re all touching & fill up the entire pan. 
  7. In a saucepan, melt your remaning butter and add 1 tbsp of sugar. Once your dough balls have risen, brush some of the sweet butter over top. 
  8. Place in a preheated 375F oven for 10 minutes, remove and brush with more butter. Turn the dish around and place back into the oven for about another 10 minutes. 
  9. When the rolls are golden brown, remove them from the oven and brush again with another coat of the sweet butter. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving or tearing apart.

See I told you, I promise it’s sooooo easy to make & that you’ll fall in love instantly.  Like. Super fucking instantly.

But that’s it! Super easy, super delicious, and definitely something amazing to make when you are craving that something easy & delicious, or really any time, let’s be honest. As always, if you make this, make sure to tag me @plvntfood / #plvntfood, so I can see it! Love y’all with my cold little heart.
