update: I used milk and sugar and sunflower oil and the resulting syrup worked really well.

I'm after the glaze top and bottom.
usual recipe has butter, milk and sugar boiled to a toffee like syrup. half at the bottom of pan other half poured over before baking.

Is it the middle bit you are after? Or the glaze?
The glaze you can make with sugar and water boiled together (with a bit of lemon or orange zest if the base dough is appropiate), or some warmed, sieved apricot jam.

Cinnamon roll recipes dont usually have much butter in the middle bit - just cinnamon and sugar.
Or you could knead in some dried fruit, and just make a teacake style bun, no extra butter required.

or can I use oil and a sprinkle of sugar bottom and top?
