Can this be used if i made vegan sweet rolls to fill them?
Hi Emily, this recipe is not vegan since it uses milk in it’s preparation. It is egg free, but not vegan. I am not sure if any vegan alternatives for milk will work with this recipe, since I haven’t tried any. On the other hand, if you do not want the filling to be vegan, it is up to you to decide! Thank you!
