You really can make these delicious Orange Rolls in 60 minutes! The fastest and easiest orange rolls you’ll ever make!
One of the most popular recipes here on my blog is the recipe for 60 Minute Cinnamon Rolls. This recipe has revolutionized my cinnamon roll making and that of many of my readers. I get comments and emails all the time about how amazing this recipe is. You no longer have any excuses not to make homemade cinnamon rolls thanks to that recipe. And yes, it is true, you can make them in 60 minutes!
They are almost as amazing as my 30 Minute Dinner Roll recipe!
With Easter coming soon my thoughts naturally turn to orange rolls because they are a favorite at our house and a must serve at Easter. As a child my mother made the orange rolls but now that duty has fallen to me. A job I gladly fulfill every year.
So, I figured if I could make 60 Minute Cinnamon Rolls why couldn’t I make 60 Minute Orange Rolls. Guess what? I can!
I made the dough just the same and then instead of a cinnamon filling I used butter, granulated sugar and orange zest. Rolled them up, cut them and let them raise!
This recipe makes 12 big rolls so if you’d prefer smaller, dinner roll size, just divide your dough and filling in half and repeat the roll making process twice and you’ll have 24 rolls. So you are working with two smaller pieces of dough rather than one large one. Watch as they get big and wonderful as they bake. They will continue to rise during the baking time. I make them in either a 9 x 13 pan where they get more squished together or if I want them more as individual rolls I use a large baking sheet so they have a little bit more room.
Of course no orange roll is complete with out a powdered sugar and orange juice glaze.
This are perfect for Easter and just about anytime and no one is going to believe you made them in 60 minutes!
