It’s vegan, it’s fast and simple, and it’s delicious!  Made by American housewives in the 50s, but no one is certain as to the origin of the name.  The bread is really more of a cinnamon coffee cake than a bread.  (You might also want to try lemon monkey bread.  Visit my fellow blogger Epicurean Vegan)

What you need:

  • 15 oz.  or 2 cans of  Immaculate Baking Company Cinnamon Chip Scones (vegan)
  • 2 cups sugar divided
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon divided
  • 1 1/2  sticks or 3/4 cup of vegan margarine

To prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Spray cooking oil on a 12 inch round cake pan.
  2. Combine 1 cup sugar and 2 tbsp cinnamon in a zip-top bag.
  3. Cut each biscuit into quarters and add to the bag; shake to coat.

I just got back in town and am very tired, but here’s a quick recipe for you using Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet.  It’s just like crescent rolls, but it’s just one big piece of dough.  This is a much healthier and vegan version of strudel and ready to eat in under 20 minutes.  These type of things are so versatile.  Fill them with whatever, bake, and eat.  Enjoy!

  • 1/4  cup sugar free pancake syrup (or pure maple syrup to taste)
