Easy One-Hour Orange Rolls Recipe
Super soft and fluffy with the perfect amount of fresh orange flavor.
- 1 cup warm water
- 3/4 cup buttermilk, room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons regular yeast
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature, slightly beaten
- 5-6 cups bread flour
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons orange zest (about one large orange)
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (or more)
In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together water, buttermilk, granulated sugar, melted butter, and yeast in a bowl. Allow to proof for 15 minutes.
With the dough hook attached add the salt, eggs, and 5 cups of flour and knead for 10 minutes. Only add just enough of the remaining 1 cup of flour to make the dough pull away from the sides of the bowl. DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH FLOUR. They will be dense and tough.
Let rest for 10 minutes.
While resting prepare your Filling:
In a small bowl mix together 6 tablespoons of softened butter, sugar and orange zest.
Roll dough out on to lightly floured or greased surface into a 12 x 16-inch square. Spread the filling over the dough leaving about 1/2" along the edges. From the long edge tightly roll up, pinch to seal the seam. Cut into 12 large rolls.
Place rolls in a lightly buttered 9x13 baking dish, cover with parchment paper. Let rise for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400F, while rising.
Bake at for 15-20 minutes. You made need to tent with foil if they start to get too brown before done baking.
