These are great if you need to take a plate to something.  You can make them in advance and put them in the freezer, and then take them out to ice them just before you go.  They look a bit fancy but they are super-easy to make (mainly because I use a bread-maker to do all my bread / dough etc.)

Kīnaki (makes about 14)

For the dough

  • 1 cup soy / almond / rice milk whatever you have in the fridge
  • 2 tablespoons of ground linseed and 3 tablespoons of water (as an egg equivalent.  Otherwise use whatever egg replacer you usually use.)
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free margarine
  • 3 1/2 cups plain white flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup sultanas


  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free margarine

Icing (optional…)

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Warm the non dairy milk on the stove or in the microwave and then pour this into the breadmaker.  Add the yeast and 1 tbsp of sugar and mix a little.  Let this rest and bubble up a bit – leave for about 10 minutes.  Add the rest of ingredients, select the dough cycle and start.

After the dough is finished, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover with a tea towel and then leave it for 10 minutes or so.

In a bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Roll the dough into a rectangle shape, about 75mm thick.  Spread the margarine over the dough and then sprinkle over the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Roll up the dough and then cut into about 14 rolls.  Place the rolls onto lined baking trays (you may need 2 or 3 trays as the rolls expand a fair bit when cooking.  Make sure you give them enough space to grow!).

Bake these at 160 for about 7 minutes, turn them over, and then bake for a further 7 until the rolls have expanded and are a golden brown colour.

When cooked, take the rolls out and leave them to cool on a rack.

Whisk together the icing sugar, vanilla, melted margarine, and dairy-free milk.  Ice the rolls just before serving and sprinkle with some coconut if desired.
