SWEET ORANGE DINNER ROLLS

Sweet Orange Dinner Rolls - Butter With A Side of BreadWe had a lovely Easter dinner with just our immediate family and one of the highlights were these orange dinner rolls. They were sweet, but not sweet enough to be considered dessert and they went perfectly with our ham dinner. I adapted them from the Lion House roll recipe, which is always a winner! These rolls are soft and feathery with a sweet, orange flavor. You’ll love them!

Sweet Orange Dinner Rolls

  • 1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees F)
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk
  • 1 TBSP yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2- 3 cups all-purpose flour

Filling: Combine 2 TBSP orange juice + 1/2 cup brown sugar + 1 TBSP melted butter

Glaze: Whisk together 2 TBSP orange juice + 1/2 cup powdered sugar.

To prepare rolls:

In a large bowl of an electric mixer, combine the water and milk powder. Stir so that the milk dissolves. Add the yeast and the sugar, then let sit for about 5 minutes, until yeast bubbles up and mixture looks frothy.

Add in the salt, butter, egg and 1 cup of the flour. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in remaining flour and mix another 2 minutes on medium speed. Set timer and mix on low speed for 5 minutes.

Scrape dough off sides of the bowl. (Dough will be soft & sticky.) Spray top of dough with non-stick cooking spray. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 10″ round Springform pan (or use a 9×13 glass dish) with non-stick spray and set aside.

Punch down dough. Spray a clean countertop with non-stick spray and transfer dough to counter. Dough will be very soft. Try not to add additional flour as it will result in a tougher roll. (This is why I use non-stick spray instead of flouring the countertop!) Spray the rolling pin with non-stick spray as well and roll dough out into a 1/2″ thick rectangle.

Spread filling mixture over the top of the rectangle. Roll up dough along the long side, pinching the end to the roll to seal it.

Use a sharp knife or plain dental floss to cut 1″- 1 1/2″ segments. Transfer rolls to prepared pan. Rolls will be soft & delicate, so work quickly.

Cover rolls with a clean dishcloth and set on top of the warming oven for 30 minutes.

Bake rolls for 25-28 minutes, until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Brush with glaze and serve warm.
