Servings: 12 people
  • 4 cups warm milk
  • 8 Tsp. SAF instant yeast
  • 8 tsp. dough enhancer optional-makes your rolls fluffy
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup oil I use olive oil
  • 3 Tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 13-14 cups white bread flour
  1. Start with a Bosch Mixer, although you can make this in a bowl. I put the yeast, warm water, salt, oil, and sugar in the bowl. I then add the eggs and lightly mix it in the Bosch so the eggs do not “cook”. Then I add the warm milk and flour slowly. I continue to add flour until the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the Bosch bowl. I knead for about 7-8 minutes. I place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. I let the dough rise until double. I punch down the dough and make a variety of things with this bread dough.  Please note that with this recipe today I made 12 orange rolls, 8 crescent rolls, and four-one pound loaves of bread. After greasing the appropriate pans, and filling them with the orange rolls, crescent rolls and loaves of bread, I covered them with plastic wrap to rise one more time. You will set the temperature at 350 degrees for the orange rolls, crescent rolls, and bread loaves. This truly is a no-fail recipe, if you have fresh ingredients.

    ****For the orange rolls: you roll out a section of the bread dough to 10 inches by 18 inches about 1/2 inch thick, or so. You lather 1/4 cup melted butter on the dough, spread a 1/2 cup of orange marmalade on the butter, sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar (not the one cup of sugar-my mom suggested) on top of the marmalade. Then you start rolling the dough over as shown below. I cut my rolls about one inch thick with a dough scraper like this one: OXO Good Grips Multi-purpose stainless steel scraper & chopper Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Homemade Orange Rolls:

    This is the filling for 12 orange rolls

    1/4 cup melted butter

    1/2 cup orange marmalade

    1/2 cup sugar

    Homemade Orange Rolls Glaze:

    This is the glaze for 12 rolls:

    2 oranges-zest them with a large micro plane and squeeze as much juice as you can out of them

    4 cups powdered sugar

    1/4 cup melted butter

    ***Combine the orange zest, orange juice, powdered sugar, and butter together with a spoon and drizzle the glaze onto the hot rolls when you pull them out of the oven. Talk about yummy! Oh my gosh!
