Recipe from the cookbook From Our Kitchen, contributor Donna Smith
Orange Swirl Buns
2 pkg active dry yeast
2 c. lukewarm water (110*)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
2/3c. nonfat dry milk
2 t. salt
7 1/4 c. sifted flour
1/2 c. soft butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 T. grated orange rind
2 12 c. powdered sugar
3 T. orange juice
Sprinkle yeast in lukewarm water, in a mixing bowl. Stir to dissolve. Add 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. butter, dry milk, salt, eggs, and 2 c. flour. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth-about 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Gradually add enough flour to make a soft dough that leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic 8-10 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turn over to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubles, about 1 1/2 hours. Combine 1 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c butter and orange rind. Mix well and set aside. Divide dough in half. Roll out one half to a 14 x 17 inch rectangle. Sprinkle with 1/2 of sugar mixture. Roll up like a jelly roll from the long side. Cut into 12 slices, place in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Repeat with rest of dough. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake in a 350* oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans, cool on racks. While warm glaze the tops of rolls.
I made these lastnight since I had some yeast to use up before it expired. These are easy and very delicious. I substituted coffee mate for the nonfat dry milk. I had no dry milk and when I looked at the store, the price was $8.25 a box, so I said no thanks. the creamer worked quite well, and I used about 1/2 c. since that is all that I had.
Thanks for the R&R along with the recipe. These sound yummy! I think I will try using brown sugar for the filling and see how that works out. May sell these at a sale our condo complex is having in Oct....a craft sale but I will do baked goods instead. We had a sidewalk sale on Sat. and I made two dozen of Lindachicken's bread machine cinn. rolls and they all sold. These should, too.
I think brown sugar would be great!
Seems like these should sell very well. They sound quite tasty.
