These Orange Sweet Rolls are so amazing! The bread is so soft and full of flavor, it has a lovely sweet orange filling and then to take it up a notch it is lightly frosted with a heavenly orange butter cream frosting. I am now obsessed with orange sweet rolls! I spent a good amount of time researching a good Orange Sweet Roll recipe and I ended up combing a couple of recipes and switching things up a bit. It turned out absolutely perfect!
This recipe does take a good amount of time from start to finish but no worries because most of that time is just the time the dough needs to rise. It’s not hard to make. The dough comes together fairly quickly and after it rises you roll it out, mix together the orange filling, spread it on and roll it up! I love to use floss to cut the dough because it doesn’t squish it. It’s pretty fun too!
Do you want to know a secret? I didn’t use regular oranges, I used Minneolas and it worked great! I’ve heard the smaller variations of oranges give off more of an orange flavor but I am not sure how true that is.
