Just a little variation of my normal cinnamon rolls with orange zest and cardamom and a touch of orange glaze on top. Lovely with a cup of tea with a splash of cream…
I used half a batch of my Easy Peasy Bread Dough. The other half was a loaf of warm bread for supper.
The recipe is HERE. But I suppose you can use any dough recipe you wish.
After the dough rises in the oven. Take it out and let it rest for about 5 minutes before rolling it out. Don’t worry about it being the perfect shape, it’s gonna get all rolled up anyhow…
Then brush it with melted butter, sprinkle generously with light brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cardamom. I zest my orange right over the top of the dough so that all those oils that are released fall right on the dough adding a stronger orange flavor!
At this point I cover them and place them in the fridge over night. But you can let them rise again in a warm oven and bake them right away. If you do chill them, take the pan out of the fridge for about 30 minutes before baking.
Preheat oven to 350 and bake for about 30 minutes or until they turn golden on top.
Make a glaze with some powdered sugar mixed with orange juice until it is drizzling consistency. You don’t need much orange juice!
Drizzle warm rolls with glaze and eat right away!
