This recipe is one my mother made during my childhood. I am not sure where it came from, but it is my favorite roll, especially the glaze. I am also not sure why it is called coffee cake. It is more of a sweet roll and it's orange, which gets my vote any time.

I have been trying lots of new sweet roll recipes lately, and this is still my favorite. It can't be beat.

I hope you enjoy it!
