      This recipe is good, but I will make some modifications for the next time. I should note that I made mine without the breadmaker, I just used the kitchenaid with the dough hook. First, the filling was too wet, requiring it to be poured onto the dough. I even let it set up in the frig a bit, but it was still thin. I measured everything, so I know it can't have been that. Next time I will soften the butter and spread it on the dough and then sprinkle it with brown sugar and cinnamon. The glaze is yummy, but it makes the rolls too sweet for our tastes, so I would cut back on the sugar used in the filling. I was skeptical that the rolls would be done in the amt. of time specified, but they were right on. But I would recommend flipping them onto your serving dish immediately after taking tham out of the oven (as instructed) because they will glue fast if you don't. I made them in disposable baking pans so I could share with our neighbors and I discovered that you need a pretty deep pan or else your glaze will flow over the sides as they bake. All in all, these are delicious and I think with these modifications, I will add them to my permanent file. Thanx for sharing Dragonfly AZ!

      Hi Dragonfly AZ: This recipe intrigued me and sounded wonderful. But I couldn't justify all those calories!! So I just made the bread and used it for fruit sandwiches. It was terrific. I didn't quite follow the recipe: 1/4 c sugar; 3 cups white flour, 1 cup wheat flour and 1/2 cup coarse cereal grains from Bob's Red Mill flours. 1 Tbsp molasses. didn't have orange rind so used 1tsp orange oil instead. And did use pecans blended right into the dough. I used less flour than the recipe called for based on the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a day method of more liquid and less flour to get a very slack dough. Just blended instead of kneading and let it sit for about 6 hours. I couldn't wait over night. Made a 1 lb portion size. Smelled wonderful cooking. Used it for a light dessert simply buttered and served with apple slices. FAbulous. This I'll do many times with lots of simple variations. Thank you so much for posting. Judy in WA

      These are the best cinnamon rolls and ever tasted let alone made. I left out the pecans(don't care for them)and substituted cinnamon and vanilla for the orange zest. I also added a little nutmeg and ginger to the filling. I thought the caramel glaze would make the rolls too sweet but boy was I wrong. I wouldn't eat them any other way. The recipe made fifteen huge cinnamon rolls that came light, moist, and delicious. I'll be making these often.
