active dry yeast
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
egg, lightly beaten
grated orange zest
This is a fantastic recipe! I added a glaze of 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 1/2 Tablespoons orange juice. Delicious!
For the amount of work, these rolls were just so-so. I brought them to work and brought home over half. I have made better rolls from Bisquick mix.
Can be adapted for the bread machine by cutting all ingredient measures in half, reducing butter to 5, and reducing yeast to a little over one tablespoon. Dough is very sticky and needs additional flour when turned out after dough cycle. Worth every amount of work. Very tasty!
These turned out great! A nice change from the usual cinnamon rolls. I also made icing and drizzled over top. I made the dough in the bread machine - I have a small machine and so cut the recipe in thirds, but still needed 6 tbsp butter and 1/2 cup sugar to fully cover the rolled out dough. Will definitely make again.
An extremely soft dough making it hard to handle, but worth it as the rolls are delicious. I drizzled a little powdered sugar and orange glaze over them, took them to a family Easter brunch and they were gone in fifteen minutes.
These rolls are so delicious. The delicate orange flavor makes a nice counterpoint to the richness of the buttery dough. Almost like eating cotton candy, they are so tender! I iced them with the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, from this website, and they are irresistible. I will also use this recipe for cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. Outstanding!
Yum! I made these when I made Cinn rolls. Just about the same prep work. Very tasty. I hadn't been able to get the right filling for orange rools before.
I thought I couldn't bake. This recipe is so good and even I can do it, (that says a lot)! I top these rolls with orange frosting and even at four dozen, they never last more than one day!!!
