Reminiscent of sweet orange rolls, this easy pull-apart bread won raves in our Test Kitchens.
1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
2 1/2 teaspoons bread-machine yeast
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons grated orange rind
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave at HIGH for 3 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Follow manufacturer's instructions for placing milk mixture, flour, yeast, and egg into bread pan, and select the dough cycle; start bread machine.
Remove dough from machine (do not bake). Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 30 seconds. Cover dough; let rest 10 minutes. Divide the dough into 24 equal portions, shaping each into a ball (cover remaining dough to keep from drying). Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar and rind. Dip each ball into 1/4 cup melted butter, and roll in sugar mixture. Place balls in bottom of a 10-inch tube pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes on a wire rack; remove bread from pan. Cool bread 15 minutes on wire rack.
Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and orange juice. Drizzle mixture over loaf, and serve warm.
This is outstanding. Best to make night before, put in fridge before it rises, let rise for approx. an hour and then bake. Husband liks Orange and I prefer it with cinnamon like Monkey Bread. We make this all the time!!!
This was soo yummy! Loved it and easy and fun to put together. The only problem: you have to get up at dawn to get this for breakfast! Next time, I'll have to put it together the night before (rising dough) and bake it first thing in the morning.
These rolls are AWESOME! I bake a lot and am slowly becoming a baking snob so fewer and fewer recipes are get 5 stars from me. My whole family and I DEVOURED these rolls hot and then finished them off for breakfast the next morning. Awesome orange flavor, awesome soft yeasty texture. Will definitely make again! (I didn't have a tube pan so used a Bundt; worked great.)
