Orange Rolls
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Filling
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons grated orange rind (fresh or dried)
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water, and let stand for 3 minutes.
  2. Add cake mix, 1 cup flour, eggs, oil, and salt; beat well. Stir in remaining flour until a soft dough forms.
  3. Knead on well floured surface for about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, and turn to coat the dough surface. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Punch down, and divide into two equal rectangles. Roll out each section on a lightly floured surface.
  6. Mix butter, sugar and orange rind. Spread half this mixture over each rectangle.
  7. Roll up like jelly rolls and cut buns 1 1/2 inches thick with a piece of dental floss or a dull knife. Place in greased baking pans, and allow to rise until doubled.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
