Recipe of Today: Orange Rolls

Recipe of Today: Orange Rolls


You’ll need typical baking ingredients like flour, sugar, eggs and butter but there are a couple of ingredients to elaborate on.

  • Oranges: You’ll need 2 large oranges for this recipe. You’ll use all the zest and most of the juice. Make sure to give them a wash first.
  • Yeast: Instant or active dry yeast are what you’re after here.


  • Make the dough: Melt together butter and some milk, then add orange juice and add it to the dry ingredients.
  • Knead the dough: In a stand mixer, this only takes about 6-7 minutes or you can do this by hand. 
  • Rest: Place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until doubled in size.
  • Make the filling: Combine the sugar and orange zest in a bowl, using your fingertips to press it together. This will release the oils from the zest, intensifying the flavor. Then add butter.
  • Form the rolls: Roll the dough out, and scatter over the filling. Roll the dough up and cut 12 slices, then place them cut side up on a greased tray. Let them rise again.
  • Bake the rolls: Bake for around 24 minutes or until nice and golden on top. Let them cool slightly before mixing the icing ingredients and pouring it over the top. Enjoy!
