• Non-Stick Foil
  • 1 pack active dry yeast
  • ½ cup of warm water
  • 2 teaspoons of orange zest
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 - 3½ cups flour
  • 10 oranges
  • Icing sugar (optional)


  • STEP 1
    Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a large mixing bowl
  • STEP 2
    Add the orange zest, orange juice, sugar, egg & butter, along with 1 ½ cups of flour. Beat for 30 seconds in a mixer on a low setting then increase the speed to medium for 2 minutes
  • STEP 3
    Stir in the remaining 1½ cups of flour to ensure your dough is easy to knead
  • STEP 4
    Once the dough is ready, turn onto a floured board and knead for another 5 minutes until it's smooth and elastic
  • STEP 5
    Cover with cling film and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size; this should take around 1½ hours
  • STEP 6
    Once risen, roll the dough into a rectangle, spread with butter and sprinkle well with combined sugar and cinnamon
  • STEP 7
    Then roll the covered dough into a small spiral shape (so that they resemble a Catherine wheel) and fit them into the scooped out tops of the oranges)
  • STEP 8
    Place the slices slightly apart on the Non-Stick Foil and bake in an oven 180OC for around 25 – 30 minutes until the rolls are golden brown
  • STEP 9
    With a sharp knife remove the tops of the oranges and place each one in Non-Stick Foil. Place the baked rolls on top of each orange, cover and place on the BBQ until the oranges are soft
  • STEP 10
    Serve with a drizzle of fresh orange juice combined with icing sugar for a tasty snack or after dinner treat!
