You can make these into braids or buns.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1/4 cup margarine
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 6 cups bread flour
Proof the yeast. Scald the milk, add butter, sugar and salt to it.
When it is luke warm add the yeast to it. Mix well, add about 2 cups of flour and beat well. Add eggs, orange juice and orange peel. Add flour mixing well after each addition, until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Knead for about 10 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled, punch dough down and if you like, let it rise again.
Divide dough into 3 balls, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Make into braids or buns and rise once more.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 10 - 12 minutes or until done. You may frost your braids or buns with an orange icing and sprinkle some nuts on top. I made 1 braid, 12 cinnamon buns and 12 butterhorns with this recipe.
