The best orange rolls of your life!
Sorry for the bad joke, but we’re not joking about how insanely delicious these rolls are.
They are vibrant, zesty, sweet, melt-in-your-mouth good and are a great way to use food storage.
Bread is one of those magical foods that you can use multiple food storage ingredients in, if you know the right secrets.
And well…you know us, we’re blabber-mouths when it comes to keeping secrets, especially about how wonderful food storage is!
Truth be told, when you’re making bread and using food storage, you’re skipping steps and dirtying more dishes than you need to.
How to turn your favorite bread recipe into a food storage bread recipe:
- POWDERED MILK: Did you know you don’t need to scald your powdered milk when you are making bread like you do with fresh milk? It’s true! So let’s say you have a recipe that calls for proofing your yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water while you scald your 1 cup of milk, simply proof your yeast in 1 1/4 cups of water (the original amount of water plus the amount of water you’ll need for the powdered milk) but don’t add the dry milk powder at this time or it will clump something awful in your bread! Be sure to add the dry milk powder at the very end after the flour so that it mixes with the flour and will not clump.
- POWDERED EGGS: Breads that have a lot of sugar and/or oil will usually call for eggs to help the texture and structure of the bread. When you see a bread recipe that calls for eggs, you will use 1 T. dry egg powder and NO water (just trust me, adding the water just puts you in the terrible cat and mouse game of adding in water to sticky dough) for every egg it calls for. So, if your recipe calls for 1 egg, you will use 1 T. dry egg powder and NO water. If it calls for two eggs, you will use 2 T. dry egg powder and NO water, and so forth.
This will blow your mind. Thrive sells a half pound package of instant yeast for $21.09 (Price retrieved Feb. 18, 2017). Now that may not seem like too bad of a deal, until you realize that you can get 4 pounds of SAF Instant yeast on Amazon (including Prime Free 2-day shipping) for only $17.86. That means it would cost you $168.72 to get the same 4 pounds of yeast from Thrive. Do yourself a favor and purchase bulk yeast from Amazon, Costco or Winco for BIG SAVINGS!
Alright, enough chit-chat, you’re ready to make these rolls. This recipe is so delicious and so much easier than you might think. It’s so easy, I was able to film myself making the rolls one armed while the kids were playing. If I can do that, you can for sure make this recipe and wow some people! Let us know how you like it.
