My mother made Caramel Rolls every week because dad liked them with his breakfast. She also would make Orange Rolls , but never as often as Caramel Rolls, and I always loved Orange Rolls. I modified her original recipe and made them with more of an orange taste and make them often for the coffee houses that buy my baked goods.

  1. I use a bread machine to mix ingredients: Put egg in container. Warm up milk, sugar, salt & butter. Pour into container with egg. Then add flours and yeast add last. Push button for dough. When cycle is done, take dough out and roll out 15"x10" rectangle. Mix sugar, butter and lemon peel and spread on dough. Roll up jelly roll fashion starting with long side. Cut into 12 rolls and place on greased baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake: 350 for 20-25 minutes. Turn out on wax paper and cool. Mix glaze of powdered sugar, cream and lemon juice and spread on rolls.
  2. If putting together by hand:
    Mix yeast in about 1/4 warm water and let it dissolve. In large bowl mix milk, butter, sugar, salt and egg. Add yeast mixture and blend. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough and knead until smooth and elastic for about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl and let rise in warm place until doubled. Then follow directions from above for rolling out and making rolls. Enjoy!!
