Orange Rolls (Bread Machine)

1 Jan

This is a recipe I gleaned from various sources, the main one being my sister Corinne’s famous cinnamon rolls. These rolls turn out fantastic and have tons of delicious orange flavor. Bonus is this recipe uses a bread machine so it’s virtually fool-proof for people like me who suck at making bread. What better way to start a new year?

Dough:

  • ½ cup warm milk
  • ½ cup orange juice, room temperature
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 ½ tsp. orange zest
  • 4 ½ cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons bread machine yeast

Filling:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

Icing:

  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place all dough ingredients in bread machine in order recommended by manufacturer. Select DOUGH cycle and press Start.

In separate bowl combine cinnamon and sugar.

After dough has finished, turn it out onto lightly floured surface and roll into a 16×24 rectangle. Spread dough with butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in lightly greased 9×13 pan. Cover and let rise until almost doubled (about 30 min). While rolls are rising, preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake rolls for 14-16 minutes (do not overbake!). While rolls are baking, mix together frosting ingredients. Spread on rolls when they are still warm.
