Orange Rolls

Orange Rolls

Fluffy orange rolls filled with an orange filling and topped with a orange glaze.

There is just something so delicious and heart warming about a nice warm roll.  I love these orange rolls and make them in a muffin tin because they are easier to eat and reheat this way.  You can definitely make them in a baking dish instead and line them up like you would cinnamon rolls.  I also love these because they aren’t very sweet but still so delicious.

I drizzle on the orange topping but if you want more glaze I would definitely double the glaze and you can even dip the tops of your warm roll into it.  Thats what my girls like to do.

These take a little bit of time since you will be letting it rest for 10 minutes in-between each knead, but they are so worth it. The best, fluffiest rolls ever.

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, add water, yeast and sugar. Let rest for 12-15 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook, add eggs, butter, salt, flour and yeast mixture.
  3. Knead the dough with your mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes. Cover bowl with a towel and let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Knead dough again with mixer for 3 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Knead dough one more time for three minutes. Let rest again for 10 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough into 3 balls. Lightly flour your counter-top and roll each dough ball out into a 15''x8'' rectangle.
  7. Mix 1/2 cup softened butter with 1/2 cup sugar and the zest of 2 oranges. Spread this mixture evenly over the three rectangles of bread dough.
  8. Roll-up each rectangle lengthwise into a long tube ( how you would roll cinnamon rolls). Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 1 1/2'' sections.
  9. Put each small dough round into a greased muffin tin.
  10. Allow dough to rise once more, for 30 minutes.
  11. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle with glaze.
For the Glaze:
  1. Whisk powdered sugar, orange zest and orange juice until smooth. Drizzle over warm orange rolls.
Recipe Notes

You could also lay them in a greased baking dish, like cinnamon rolls. Store orange rolls in a tightly sealed container or bag at room temperature. To freeze, allow the rolls to cool completely after cooking with no glaze on them. Place muffins in a ziplock freezer bag, freeze up to 3 months. To reheat, microwave the muffins for 15-20 seconds and top with fresh glaze.
