Serves: 24
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon active-dry yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • zest of 2 small oranges, or 1 large
  1. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add the milk, butter, sugar, and salt. Stir until butter melts. Remove from heat and let stand until lukewarm.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the yeast, warm water and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Let stand 10 minutes or until foamy.
  3. Once milk/butter mixture is lukewarm, add to the foamy yeast mixture. Stir. Next add in the beaten eggs, and slowly stir in all 4½ cups of flour.
  4. Cover and let rise until doubled in size. (about 1 – 2 hours)
  5. Once the dough has risen, mix together the filling ingredients. Set aside.
  6. Punch down dough, and divide in half. Take one half of dough out of bowl, and place onto a floured counter top. (Make sure to flour your hands up good. The dough is very sticky)
  7. With first half of dough, roll out into a rectangle. Spread half of the filling mix over the dough. Roll up dough lengthwise (like you would cinnamon rolls) Cut into 12 pieces. Place pieces in greased muffin tins.
  8. Repeat with other half of dough.
  9. Cover the muffin tins with kitchen towels and let rise until doubled.
