This is the first cinnamon roll recipe that I've ever tried and the family and I like it so much that I will surely stick with it. I've already baked it twice in one week! The texture of the bread is very pleasing. It's soft and chewy enough without being overly so. I made a few adjustments to the recipe because we don't eat eggs. I used "Egg Replacer" to replace the eggs, I added about a tablespoon of maple syrup to the dough for a slight hint of sweetness, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a tablespoon of french vanilla non-dairy creamer for a gentle whisper of vanilla in the dough. I also added about a cup of nutritional yeast flakes and 1 tablespoon of vital wheat gluten and placed that in the dough. To the center sugar mixture I added about a half cup of ground flax seeds and mixed that in with the sugar that was sprinkled in the center to try to boost the nutrition a little. I used Smart balance in place of the butter which worked fine and I also rubbed some smart balance along with a little sugar on the top of the loaf which gave it a nice light brown lightly crispy top. This cinnamon roll came out really yummy. I have a new favorite recipe!
