One of my friends from Rexburg, called today and requested my “Orange Roll” recipe. I decided to share it with all of you. I challenge you to find a better recipe than this one. Trust me…they don’t get any better!!
You can also make Cinnamon rolls or caramel pecan rolls with this dough. They take a little time, but you can make several pans, and freeze them. When I make this recipe, I triple it. It makes about 5 – 10×13 cake pans of large delicious rolls.
* If you are using a 5 1/2 – 6 quart KitchenAid Mixer, you will only be able to double this recipe, or you will have a huge mess on your hands! I use the largest Tupperware bowl to triple this recipe, and a lot of arm power!*
Before freezing, frost them, cover with saran wrap, and then heavy duty foil. When thawing, remove the plastic wrap, and loosly cover with the foil. ENJOY!
*I will also put this on our Bon Appetit Blog*
1 cup milk (scald & cool til luke warm)
3 TBSP Butter
1 Cup flour
3 eggs beaten
1/2 Cup sugar
1 TBSP Yeast
Beat the above mixture together and let sit for 15 minutes.
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
Mix together well, kneading slightly. Form a nice ball of dough, that is soft,
but doesn’t stick to your fingers. Add additional flour if needed.
Grease a large Tupperware bowl with butter, place dough in bowl, and cover with tight lid.
Rise dough until doubled in size.
**Tip from a great Chef**
Place 2 large clean bath towels inside your dryer.
Turn your dryer on, and heat those towels, until they are very warm.
Open dryer, and nest your bowl of dough in the warm towels.
Close your dryer door………DO NOT TURN ON YOUR DRYER!!!!
The dough will raise in no time at all. Trust me it works wonders.
While your dough is rising, prepare the following GLAZE for the dough:
6 TBSP melted butter
1/2 C. Sugar
Grated rind of 1 orange
Now prepare your FROSTING:
1 bag of powdered sugar
All the freshly sqeezed juice from your orange
2 TBSP Vanilla
1 cube softened butter
enough milk to make frosting the right consistency
Mix together until fluffy with your hand mixer.
(You will need to cut your powdered sugar in half, if you are only using a single or double recipe)
use 1/2 cube of butter
use all the orange juice
1 TBSP Vanilla
and enough milk for the right consistency.
*When the dough has doubled in size, you are ready to roll!
Sprinkle a generous amount of flour across your counter.
(When I triple this recipe, I split the dough 4 ways)
Roll out dough, in an oblong shape, about 1/2 to 3/4 ” thick.
Spread dough with glaze mixture.
Sprinkle with a little cinnamon. I also sprinkle coconut across my dough.
That is my husbands request….it’s optional
Roll up your dough into a long log and pinch and seal the edges.
Cut 1″ slices with a long piece of sewing thread.
Place in well greased pans. (3 across x 5 down)
Rise again…..until double. (Not in dryer this time around!)
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until Golden Brown
~Frost while they are warm~
Let cool before you wrap with saran wrap & foil to freeze.
BETCHA CAN’T EAT JUST ONE!
