Vegan Cannoli

Vegan Cannoli
Recipe type: Cakes, Biscuits & Slices
Serves: approx 22
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon of solid coconut oil
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon of apple juice
  • ¼ cup of aquafaba plus extra to seal cannoli (liquid from a can of chickpeas)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon & salt in a large mixing bowl
  2. Add the coconut oil & rub through the dry mixture until the mix becomes sandy in texture
  3. Add apple juice & ¼ cup of aquafaba and mix through. Knead the dough for a few minutes into a smooth ball. (If too dry, add 1 tsp apple juice at a time, but you shouldn’t need it).
  4. Divide in two equal parts, flatten & place on small plates, cover in plastic & refrigerate for an hour
  5. Heat a small frypan with 1-2 cms of oil – medium to hot
  6. Roll out dough until thin (0.2 – 0.3 mm) & cut a 10cm ring. Wrap dough around rods sealing the edge with the extra aquafaba (see note about rods)
  7. Carefully place the rods into the oil, seal side down first by using tongs & turn occasionally to cook evenly & until golden brown (1-2 minutes)
  8. Remove with tongs. Using a cloth pinch the end of the rod & the foil & slide the cannoli off & cool on a wire rack
  9. Once cooled, fill with your choices of filling (Google search) or with chocolate ganache & custard (if you would like the recipes for my fillings, please ask) 🙂
You can purchase a cannoli rod made from steel but a 13cm piece of wooden broom handle wrapped in foil will suffice
