Orange Rolls Orange Rolls-2

Orange Rolls or Cinnamon Rolls

(Grandma’s Egg Bread) (A Family Favorite)

Mix and set aside:

  •  ½ cup warm water
  • 2 T Dry yeast
  • ½ cup sugar

Beat 3 eggs in a large bowl.

Add to eggs and mix:

  • 2 ½ c. milk (room temp.)  Best if brought to a boil then cooled.
  • 1 cube butter (room temp.)
  • 4 t. Salt
  • 5 cups whole wheat and/or unbleached flour
  • yeast mixture

Add and knead in about 2 ½ more cups of flour to make a soft and smooth dough. (Use wet hands to knead.)  Let rise. (double in bulk)  Punch the air out.

Mix in a small container:

  •  1 cube soft butter,
  • ½ cup sugar
  • the zest from one orange.      (grated peel)

Roll the dough into a ½ in. thick rectangle.  Spread the zest/butter mixture on dough except for a 1 inch strip on the edge to seal the roll.

Roll up the dough and seal with the non-buttered edge.  Cut the roll with dental floss or a knife.

Put the rolls in a greased baking pan.  Let rise until double in bulk again.

Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes.

Make the glaze while the rolls are baking.

Glaze

Cook 1 cube butter with 1 cup brown sugar until it boils 1 minute.  Take off the stove and beat in the juice from 1 orange, and 1 cup sifted powdered sugar.  As the rolls come out of the oven, spoon on the glaze.

Optional Cinnamon Rolls

After the dough is rolled out, butter the dough except for a 1 inch strip on one of the longer sides, so you can seal the roll. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar (1 cup brown sugar mixed with 2 teas. cinnamon) only on the butter.  Continue like for Orange Rolls.

Glaze

Cook 1 cube butter with 1 cup brown sugar until it boils 1 minute.  Take off the stove and beat in ½ teas. vanilla, 1 T. milk and 1 cup sifted powdered sugar.  As the rolls come out of the oven, spoon on the glaze.

Soft Boiled Eggs

Put eggs in pan of hot water.  Bring water to a boil.  Turn to low and cook for 3 minute at sea level.  (Add 1 minute for every 2000 feet you are above sea level.)

Toast 1 piece of bread for each egg while the eggs are cooking.  Butter the bread and tear apart the bread into individual bowls.

When the eggs are cooked, cool for 1 minute in cold water.  Break open over the broken up bread.  Scoop out the eggs.  Mix the eggs into the bread.  Salt and Pepper to taste.

Serve with Bacon and sliced oranges for a yummy simple meal.

This is one of my husband’s and grandchildren’s favorite meal.

Make your favorite bread dough or thaw out frozen bread/roll dough.  (Look at the Grandma’s Egg Bread (Orange Rolls) and Wheat Bread recipes on this blog.)

When the dough is ready:

  • Heat about a 1/2 inch of oil (expeller pressed prefered) in a heavy frying pan.  Don’t let the heat get too high and burn the oil.
  • Roll the dough out and cut with a knife into about 3 x 2 inch pieces.
  • Fry the dough until it is brown on both sides.
  • Cool for a few minutes on a paper towel.
  • Then serve with Honey Butter.   (Mix with a fork 1 cube of soft butter with about 1/2 cup of honey.)

Fun Treat!

WH for Wheat Bread

DSC_7520Wheat Bread is a good food experience for the WH sound.  Children love to see the wheat ground into flour.

Whole Wheat Bread or Rolls

Put ingredients in a large bowl or bread mixer bowl in the order listed.  ( Yes, the yeast and water is last.)

  • 1 to 2 T. salt
  • 9 C. whole wheat high protein flour (6 c. of white wheat ground makes about 9 c. flour, if you have a wheat mill.)
  • ½ C. gluten flour
  • 3/4 C. expeller-pressed oil or other good oil (Can use olive oil or half applesauce.)
  • ½ C. Molasses, honey or mixture of both
  • 1 T. lecithin (granules or liquid)
  • 2 T. SAF instant yeast or some other instant yeast
  • Add just enough water to make a soft dough–3 ½ to 4 ½ C. warm water (warm, not hot, not cold, when poured over wrist)

Start mixing with a bread mixer, wooden spoon, metal spoon or strong spatula.  Depending on the humidity it may take more or less water.  Keep the dough soft.  A soft dough will make a better bread.  As you mix it should start to clean the sides of the bowl.  Once it starts to be mixed start using your hands to knead the dough if you are using a spoon.  If you are kneading by hand, keeping your hands wet will keep the dough from sticking to your hands.  Mix or knead for about 8 minutes.  Leave in the bowl or put dough on a floured surface.  Cover with a clean light weight dish towel.  Let it rise for about 15 minutes.

Shape into loaves or rolls. (3 large or 4 small) Children like to make rolls. Cover with light towel and let rise in a warm place for about 15 minutes or until double in size.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 40 minutes (20 minutes for rolls) or until golden brown and hollow-sounding when thumped.

(Using good oil will make the bread taste better and add healthy oil soluble vitamins.  Olive oil will give the bread a slight olive oil taste.  Keep expeller- pressed oil in your refrigerator. )

* Use olive oil in the dough to make a great pizza crust.
