Preparation

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the soy milk and vegan butter until melted.
  2. Activate the yeast by mixing warm (not hot) soy milk and the yeast. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the yeast mix and combine with a wooden spoon. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is soft and smooth.
  4. Put the kneaded dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film until  it doubles in size.
  5. For the filling, mix the vegan butter, ground almonds, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, sugar, soy milk, and almond extract until well combined.
  6. Once the dough is ready, roll out the dough into a rectangle (about 14x18-inch). Evenly spread the filling leaving a margin of about 1 inch.
  7. Start at the left-hand corner of the edge closest to you. Working from left to right, tug the lip of the dough up and over the filling, keeping it tight. Roll up the dough, tightening the log as you go.
  8. When you reach the far edge of the dough, moisten the bare edge with water and pinch to seal the seam. Place the dough seam facing down on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and brush the top with some melted vegan butter or soy milk.
  9. Preheat the oven to 355°F and bake the strudel for about 45 minutes. Cool down completely on a wire wrack before icing the strudel.
  10. For the icing, mix some fresh lemon juice and icing sugar until you have the desired consistency. Then, ice as desired.
