No-yeast Orange Rolls that can be made and enjoyed in less than an hour.
Twice a year on the first weekend in April and October my church has a broadcast that goes out to members all over the world. It is a big deal and such a wonderful and uplifting experience. I am always grateful for the long weekend filled with inspiring words and messages from men that I believe to be called by God. If you would like to know more about what I believe click on that I’m A Mormon button on the side or you can go here.
Growing up my dad would make a huge breakfast on Sunday morning that we could eat while we watched. I’ve kept up that tradition and love to make something special for conference weekend. This time around I was thinking orange rolls but I am not great with yeast and am really too impatient/awful at planning ahead to do yeast orange rolls.
So I used this recipe for quick cinnamon rolls and increased it to make a big pan and changed the filling and the icing. I hope that these can become a family tradition in your house like I know they will be in our house.
- 6 cups white all-purpose flour- I use half white, half wheat
- 4½ Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp baking powder
- 1¼ tsp baking soda
- 3 cups buttermilk or sour milk
- 1½ cups butter, melted
- 5 Tbsp butter, melted
- 5 Tbsp brown sugar
- Lots of orange zest (I used the zest of five oranges)
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp orange zest
- 6- 10 Tbsp orange zest
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Mix together all the dry dough ingredients. Then add the buttermilk and butter, dough may be wet. Add flour as needed to achieve a soft dough. Pat out the dough into a large rectangle about ½" thick.
- Pour the 6 Tbsp melted butter over the entire dough and use a pastry brush to get it around the edges. Mix together the brown sugar and orange zest in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the dough. Roll up the dough from the long side.
- Slice into 12 rolls and place in a greased 9 by 13 baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown around the edges.
- Mix together glaze and pour over the rolls while they are still hot.
