Orange Buns

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

You can make these into braids or buns.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • 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.
