Recipe of the Week: Homemade Orange Rolls

It’ time to have something a little sweet, so this week’s recipe is homemade orange rolls.  These are great for breakfast and easy to whip up.  I recommend making a double batch for your family because they will not last long!


1 tbsp active dry yeast

1/3 cup warm water

5 tbsp butter, diced

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup scalded milk

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 cups unbleached all purpose flour


1 medium orange rind, grated

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter, melted


1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 tbsp orange juice

1/2 tbsp butter, melted

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

In a breadmaker, combine the warm water and yeast. Let sit for 5-10 minutes or until foamy. While yeast is dissolving, in a small saucepan, scald the milk. Turn off heat and add the butter, sugar and salt and mix until melted. Allow the milk mixture to cool to lukewarm before pouring it in with the yeast. Add the remaining ingredients into the breadmaker and set your breadmaker to the “dough” setting. Once the dough is finished, roll the dough into 24 balls (about the size of a golf ball). In a small bowl, melt the butter for the coating and set aside. Mix together the orange and sugar and set aside in another bowl. Dip each ball in butter, than roll in the sugar and orange coating. Set in a lightly greased muffin cup. Continue until all dough balls have been rolled in the coating.

Let rolls rise until double in size, or just barely over the tops of the muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12-15 minutes. You may want to set the muffin cups on top of a cookie sheet to catch any of the coating that may fall over the sides while cooking.

Remove muffins from oven, and while warm, glaze them. In a bowl, mix together the glaze ingredients with a mixer set at medium speed. Spoon the glaze over each muffin while warm.
