Very low fat breakfast rolls with fresh orange, dried cranberries, honey, and cardamom. I really like these rolls any time of day. Good plain or with an orange glaze.

  • Add honey, oil, white flour, wheat flour, salt, and yeast to the orange pulp. Select dough setting, and start the bread machine. Adjust consistency with orange juice or flour as needed to achieve a soft pliable dough.

  • When dough cycle is complete divide dough into 2 or 3 pieces. Roll out to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cardamom, and dried cranberries. Roll up dough with goodies inside, and slice 1 to 2 inches thick. Place rolls in a baking pan coated with non-stick spray. Allow enough room between the rolls so that they rise properly. Let rise in a warm spot for approximately 1 hour.

  • Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan, and place on wire rack. Serve warm.

I too believe there is too much cardamom in this recipe but I left countered it with 2 tsp. of cinnamon and it helped a lot. I also added 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar to the dough as well. Very good alternative to more fattening breakfast breads and the aroma is fabulous. Read More

These would have been great but yowza - that's a LOT of cardamom. Cardamom is a very strong flavor and 1 teaspoon is just TOO much! I will make these again but I'm going to use 1/2 the amount. Read More

As written this recipe just does not work out it needs extra liquid. I have made these rolls twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly set my bread maker and came back to what looked like breadcrumbs. So I through it out and started again. I used the basic recipe but added cup of orange juice. This really was what the recipe required I had used the pulp of a large orange but there was still not enough liquid. I rolled out the dough and spread 1 tablespoon of melted butter over the top then added the sugar. I used a combination of Cardamom and cinnamon (even using just half the amount of cardamom in the recipe the taste was still quite overpowering) I then finished with raisins in place of the cranberries. Rolled and cut following the recipe. I let rise in the covered oven before storing in the fridge over night. The following morning I removed the rolls from the fridge and left on the counter for 45 minutes to bring to room temperature before baking. I baked for 25 minutes. I did finish off the rolls with the orange cream cheese frosting off this site. Enjoyable rolls once I had made the changes. Read More

I made these for my mom for Christmas and she and my dad loved them. I tasted one for quality assurance purposes and it was pretty good even though I don't really like cranberries. If I made them for myself I'd use another dried fruit instead. Read More

I really like this! I'm rating it at a 4 only bc bf wasn't wild about it and bc I do agree that 1 tsp of cardamom is too much. I used 1/2 a tsp and it was plenty. Made the dough last night let it rise overnight and popped it in the oven when I got up. Its hard for me to tell when these types of rolls are done--20 min wasn't enough but I didn't realize until I served and they were doughy. But thats an oven thing I just need to figure out! I was worried they might need some frosting but I think they are sweet enough as is at least for me. Had some difficulty with the dough as it wasn't wet enough. I used two clementines though and had to add about 3/4 cup OJ and milk (didn't think about OJ until I had added 1/2 c of milk--more OJ would've been better). But I think the liquid will always depend on the amount of pulp you can get out of your orange(s). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I read everyone's reviews about needing moisture and the cardamom, so I used 3 oranges and reduced the cardamom to a little less than half and added two teaspoons of cinnamon. I haven't used cardamom in cooking previously so thought I'd go with moderation. I also substituted chopped dates (about 1 1/2 cups) rather than cranberries because I didn't have cranberries. YUM!! My husband and I both love these!! Read More

I've been wanting to make this for a long time because I love cardamom. They were good but unfortunately a lot of the filling came out on the bottom of the pan during baking. Read More

Since I don't have a bread maker, I made these by hand. First off, I doubled the recipe and followed it with the exceptions of softening the yeast in 1/4 c. of warm water for five minutes. I also did not add cardamon as I don't care for it. This turned out like a quick bread. Extremely hard to knead and roll out, nor did it raise at all. There was way to much brown sugar. I was very disappointed but I am going to make it again and use 3/4 c. orange juice like another user suggested and so I give it three stars. Read More
