orange bubble loaf
Easy enough for a child to make and super delicious. My kids said it was very much like the citrus cream cheese pull apart rolls we make twice a year for General Conference. They said if I added some cranberries it would be very similar. That would certainly save a lot of time and effort!
Get ready to lick your fingers!
orange bubble loaf (oh, sweet basil)
1 bag 36 ct bread rolls (I used Rhodes)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/4 cup melted butter
Grease a bread loaf pan. Allow for the dough to thaw.
In a small dish, melt butter. In another small dish, combine the sugar and orange peel.
Cut each ball of dough in half then roll them into balls.
Roll each ball in the butter. Roll that ball in the sugar/orange mixture.
Place in the greased pan.
Repeat until you have two levels of rolls.
Allow them to raise until 1-inch from the top.
Bake for 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes then lower the temperature to 300 and cook for an additional 10 minutes. When done, turn upside down onto serving plate to cool.
What I have to say- We used 20 rolls and had rolls overflowing out of the pan. If you used 36 rolls you could easily make two loaves of this bread and still have a few fall over the edge. We did not limit ourselves to two layers which could've been why pan was overflowing. Fortunately, we'd put a baking sheet under the loaf pan so it wasn't a big deal at all.
