For the Topping

  • 4 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • If you haven't, boil sweet potatoes, let cool, mash it. You need 1 1/2 cups to make this recipe.
  • In a small bowl, add together the milk and vinegar. This makes vegan buttermilk. Let sit together for 5 minutes. Then, add in brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Combine well, set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together. Grate in your butter to the bowl. After about ever 4 tbsp, fold the butter in with flour (this helps it not clump and stay cold). Stir together one last time to make sure well combined.
  • Add in sweet potato mixture, careful not to overmix. The dough will be a bit rough and still have bits here and there.
  • Onto a lightly floured surface, dump out the bowl. Use yours hands to gather the dough together and press into a rectangle. The dough should be scraggly/crumbly. Press the dough down to about 1 1/4 inches thick.
  • Fold the top 1/3 of the dough into the middle. Then, fold the bottom 1/3 to the middle. (Similar to how you would fold a paper. Flour dough a little if sticky.
    Press the dough out to 1 inch thick and repeating folding process.
  • Trim off the rough edges to square off the sides to help with the rising. Then cut into 8 equal portions. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, spacing biscuits evenly.
  • In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients together. Then brush the tops lightly with the mixture (you should only use half of it). Bake for 20-25 minutes. When done, brush again evenly with remaining cinnamon butter mixture.
  • Serve immediately or let cool and store in an airtight container.
