Cinnamon rolls, or any other breakfast rolls are super popular in my house. I’m always a big fan of cinnamon rolls but my husband LOVES orange rolls. Mostly, I love strawberries so I married our two loves together for these delicious Strawberry Orange Rolls.
Mmmmm, there is nothing like a warm orange roll right out of the oven and glazed for that ooey-gooey, heaven on earth, breakfast experience.
I remember being newly married and making the Pillsbury version of these. Until then, I had never had the pleasure of sinking my teeth into an orange roll. That is where things changed for the better! 🙂
Orange Inspiration From Local Bakery
Here in our town in Alabama, there is a wonderful bakery called Edgar’s, Hold on to your hat because they make some of the most ridiculous homemade cinnamon rolls and orange rolls daily. They are to DIE for! Actually, monster rolls are what they remind me of but they are super light and fluffy and loaded with icing.
With many visits, we have decided the orange roll rules! After multiple taste tests, my family is in unanimous consent! The flavor is amazing and just comes singing out once you take a bite. Oh so delicious.
Our biggest problem is restraining ourselves from making constant trips to the bakery to indulge ourselves! But always fun when we do!
Making Them At Home
The Orange Dough
Making them at home is super simple. The recipe is super user friendly and makes a delicious light and moist breakfast roll. I load the dough with fresh zest which really brightens up the dough.
More importantly, the dough rises beautifully and super easy and elastic to roll out.
Just can’t get enough of that orange flavor, the filling is also loaded with fresh zest and accompanied by some strawberry jam. The jam is subtle and goes so well with orange. Also, I love the contrast of colors here with the hint of red and the zest.
Icing… Of Course!
Icing, of course is a total must. All in moderation… or maybe not! I love loading it on pretty thick!
Glazing your works of art bring it all together with the addition of fresh juice and zest to finish and highlight the star of the show. You mouth gets an explosion of orange and strawberry simultaneously.
These Strawberry Orange rolls are perfect for Christmas morning too!
