“You can make these into braids or buns.” - by DeeDee
Original recipe yields 2 - 1/2 dozen
- Proof the yeast. Scald the milk, add butter, sugar and salt to it.
- When it is luke warm add the yeast to it. Mix well, add about 2 cups of flour and beat well. Add eggs, orange juice and orange peel. Add flour mixing well after each addition, until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
- Knead for about 10 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled, punch dough down and if you like, let it rise again.
- Divide dough into 3 balls, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Make into braids or buns and rise once more.
- Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 10 - 12 minutes or until done. You may frost your braids or buns with an orange icing and sprinkle some nuts on top. I made 1 braid, 12 cinnamon buns and 12 butterhorns with this recipe.

"I had made these rolls for years when my kids were little. We called them sunshine rolls and always had them christmas morning.

"I love making bread with my bread machine, and when I found this recipe I got super excited. It sounded delicious! I did make a few slight changes as I did not have any oranges to zest, but I found th..." See moreat it did not need it. Also, I found that I only needed 5 1/3 cups of bread flour. I threw all my ingredients into my bread machine (wet ingredients first, dry on top, and then make a funnel in the dry ingredients to add your yeast) and set it to my dough setting. After it was done rising the first time, I rolled my doll out on a lightly floured surface to about a 1/3 of a inch of thickness. I then rubbed butter on it a la cinnamon roll style and very lightly sprinkled white sugar on it. I took my pizza cutter and cut my dough into little squares and then pinched the dough into a ball so that the butter and sugar is on the inside (this is how I make rolls). I put them in 9 inch greased cake pans and then covered them with clean dish towels for an hour. Remember to let them rise in a warm place. Mine happened to be on my stove under my hood lights. I then baked them at 350 degrees (my oven is electric and runs hot for some reason) for 10 to 11 minutes. They make EXCELLENT dinner rolls—slightly sweet, but so soft and chewy. I highly recommend this recipe. Delicious."
