      Amazingly delicious, the perfect breakfast bread! After I zested the orange I juiced it, and added milk to that to make up the 1 cup of liquid called for in the recipe. My favorite way to eat this is with a shmear of cream cheese and then a little orange marmalade on top. My youngest Dornette, Adiya, likes them with chocolate spread inside (chocolate and orange, yummmmm!). Leta, you've added another addiction to this household. I can't wait to try this as a challah!

      These are very nice rolls with a subtle orange flavor. I changed the method on this recipe a bit. I mixed the orange zest with the sugar, but instead of mixing in the butter, I melted it (used half the amount) and brushed it on the dough. Then I sprinkled over the orange sugar and reserved some for the topping. I also brushed a mix of orange juice and butter on the rolls when they came out of the oven. I thought the dough was too soft and difficult to work with, but didn't want to add more flour and risk tough rolls. I thought these turned out a bit bland, but not sure what to do to liven them up without upsetting the delicate flavor.

      Leta, the end result of these rolls was absolutely delicious! Nice and light-tasting! I had a little problem with the recipe not being very clear in places. I wasn't sure what 'let rise until bubbly' meant (it was bubbly right after I stirred it)...I let it sit for 15 min. Also, a size for the rectangle would have been helpful (I chose 18"X12") as would a size for the slices (I used 1"). And because of the butter, my sugar mixture was pastey so I wouldn't have been able to 'sprinkle' it over the rolls...instead I used all the mixture on the inside and just before baking, brushed the tops with 3 tbsp orange juice concentrate mixed with 1 tbsp brown sugar. As I said...absolutely delicious and I will definitely be serving this to my brother and his wife when they visit...they own a B&B in Yellowknife! Thanks Leta! M&Mers
