You can make this breakfast bread recipe the night before and let it rise overnight in the refrigerator. Just in case some of the glaze spills over, put an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet on the rack below the pan while baking.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pulse first 3 ingredients in a large-capacity (11-cup) food processor 4 times or just until combined, using the metal blade. Remove metal blade, scraping yeast mixture into food processor bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add remaining 1 cup flour, and process 30 seconds or until a dough forms, coming together to hold a shape. (Dough will be sticky.)

Step 3

Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Step 4

Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and roll into a 10- x 18-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with Filling, leaving a 1-inch border. Roll up dough, jelly-roll fashion, starting at 1 long side. Cut into 12 (1 1/2-inch) slices, and arrange in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 30 minutes.

Step 5

Bake rolls at 400° for 10 minutes. Remove rolls from oven; drizzle about 1/2 cup Glaze slowly over rolls, starting at 1 edge of pan and drizzling in a circular pattern; let glaze soak in. Repeat procedure with remaining Glaze.

Step 6

Bake rolls 7 to 10 more minutes or until lightly browned and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Step 7

Remove rolls from oven, and invert onto an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Invert again, glaze side up, onto a serving platter. Let cool 20 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

I added all the remaining wet ingredients to the yeast mixture after the 5 minute wait. My first batch was really wet and I added almost double the flour, but they were still awesome! This is my second time making them, the flour was much closer to the recipe, I believe it was the sweet potato that threw it off. I also added pumpkin pie spice to the dough (1 t.). Another help was lining my baking sheet with non-stick grill foil, so when it was done baking I just pulled the foil up and lifted the whole batch out of the pan, no inverting needed.

We love these! We can't stop eating and sharing them. Everyone wants the recipe. I put all the ingredients for the dough in this order in the bread machine: water, potato, egg, buttermilk, sugar, butter, flour, orange rind, yeast, salt, soda. When done then turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and roll dough out.

In the recipe as written online, this part is missing: Step 2: Insert short plastic dough blade; add 1/2 c flour; process 2 min. Add mashed sweet potatoes, next 7 ingredients & 4 c flour; process 2 min. Add remaining 1 c flour, etc. Filling has cinnamon. Excellent recipe with all info.

Ummm, am I the only one who can't figure out how to put the darn recipe together?? Forget about the glaze and filling. I get that. But the dough recipe seems to be lacking BIG TIME. Am I supposed to mix all the ingredients together, including the baking soda with the yeast mixture???? I must be missing something!!! HELP!!!
