Orange glazed Cinnamon Rolls


Ingredients (makes about 12 rolls)

2 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp of salt
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of water
2 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast
1 large egg
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted

5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, room temperature
3 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Pinch of salt

1 cup of icing sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons of orange juice
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract


1- In a large bowl, stick all ingredients to make the dough. Mix well using your hands and form a ball. If it’s too sticky, add some more flour. Leave the dough n the bowl, cover with a towel and let the dough rise for 1 hour 30, or until it doubles in size.

2- For the filling: In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the butter, honey, sugar, cinnamon and salt until smooth.

3- To make the rolls: Lightly flour your work surface and drop the dough onto it. Roll the dough into a large rectangle (about 40cm x 25cm) that’s about 3mm thick. Spread the filling onto the dough, being sure to stop 1,5cm before the edge so the filling doesn’t ooze out when you roll it.
Roll the dough toward you and transfer the large roll to a cutting board. Slice 2cm rolls using a sharp knife.
Transfer the rolls in a 20cm diameter baking pan and cover with a towel to rise for the second time, around 1 hour.

4- Preheat the oven at 175°C. When the oven is preheated, add the rolls and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until the tops are lightly golden brown.

5- To make the glaze: whisk together the icing sugar, orange juice and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the glaze on top of the warm rolls and serve!
