Maybe the YUMMIEST thing EVER!

The other day our friends had us over for dinner and I volunteered to bring something, I was having a hard time deciding what to bring. I was waffling between rolls or a dessert.  So instead of choosing between the two I combined them and possible made the yummiest thing EVER.  (not to pat myself on the back or anything)  Ok, so I only made Fancy orange roll pull-a-parts but seriously they were scrumptious.

The pictured really doesn’t do it justice.

This is how I did it.

First you’ll need some dough I used my  PLEASE RESTRAIN ME! Dinner Rolls that recipe will give you more than enough dough, you could actually  use only 1/2 the batch.

After I had made the dough AND after it had risen the first time I punched it down and kneaded it a few times (I did that right in the bowl).  Then I ripped off little chunks of dough and rolled them in melted butter then I rolled then in a combination of sugar and orange zest. About 1 cup of sugar to the zest of 1 & 1/2 oranges (depending on their size).  Then I layered them in my bunt pan and sprinkled it with sugar in the raw.  I filled the bunt pan up about half way. I let it rise again for about 30 min.  Then I baked it at 350 degrees for about 34 min.  After it was done I glazed it with some vanilla frosting (1/4 cup?) that I thinned by adding orange juice and more zest. 

FYI-  I should tell you that I live at sea level so if you ever make something from here you should adjust accordingly

VARIATION:  My husbands favorite citrus fruit by far is limes.   His birthday is on Friday and I think I’ll be making him the lime version I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Oh boy, I love orange rolls. This sounds even better than monkey bread. I'm starting a new linky party on my blog this Saturday called "Sweets for a Saturday." I hope you'll be able to join in.

Orange rolls are the best! This looks like it would be so good with hot chocolate.

That does look super yummy. I make cinnamon rolls once in awhile, but I never made orange rolls. I need to try this.

That looks delicious. If I didn't have to work in the morning I would totally make it for breakfast. Perhaps some time this week.
