Sweet Orange Petal Roll is a fun twist on the traditional orange roll and so much more fun to eat.
So I have a hard time leaving a good thing alone and a Petal Roll is one of them!
I love orange rolls and they always make an appearance at our Easter table in some shape or form. So this year they are go to take the form of Petal Bread.
My mom has always been the master orange roll maker in our family and you can find her original orange roll recipe here if you prefer a more traditional form of orange rolls. But get a little crazy this year and serve your orange rolls in the form of a petal roll. The kids are going to love it. Who doesn’t love to tear their food right out of the pan!
I used the same dough as I did for the Cinnamon Petal Roll. Just mix it up and let it rise until doubled.
Then break off golf ball size clumps of dough and roll it into a 5-7 inch rope. Dip it into your butter/sugar/orange rind mixture and then start forming your petal in the middle of the cast iron pan. I prefer using a cast iron pan but you could use any round pan that can cover in the oven.
Just keep adding ropes of dough until the whole pan is full.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
Then it is time for the crowning touch – the orange glaze. Don’t forget this step. I like lots of glaze goodness. And there you have it – a Sweet Orange Petal Roll. Pretty much perfection.
