Are you looking for a special dinner roll to serve for Holiday events? I’ve found just the thing. These Orange Buttermilk Dinner Rolls are easy to make and taste great. They have a hint of orange zest which adds a delicious burst of flavor.
If you’re pressed for time, you can make these rolls the day before. I made them for a special luncheon at my church recently. I knew I wouldn’t have time to prepare the rolls the day of the event, so I baked them the day before, wrapped them in foil and just reheated them when it was time to serve them. They were great!
Orange Buttermilk Dinner RollsMakes: 13 Rolls
Source: Cooking Light November 2010 Issue
1 1/4 cups warm buttermilk (100° to 110°)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 package dry yeast
3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
4 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 teaspoon kosher salt
14 ounces all-purpose flour (about 3 cups)
Combine first 3 ingredients in bowl of an electric mixer. Sprinkle yeast over milk mixture; let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter, rind, and salt.
Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add flour to yeast mixture; mix on low speed with a dough hook until a soft, elastic dough forms (about 5 minutes). Dough will be sticky. I used a dough whisk to mix the ingredients.
Then I kneaded the dough by hand for about 8 minutes.
Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top.
Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°) for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Cut dough into 13 equal pieces.
Working with 1 piece at a time, roll dough into a ball by cupping your hand and pushing against dough and surface while rolling. Arrange dough balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Brush lightly with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
Cover; let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 375°. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until rolls are golden. Remove rolls from pan; cool slightly on a wire rack.
