Blueberry Orange Sweet Rolls
I first start with my basic sweet dough recipe that I use for cinnamon rolls. I put it in the bread machine and choose the dough cycle. Takes about 1 1/2 hours.
I also like to play with it to make it a bit more healthy. I use raw sugar or honey instead of white sugar, or I replace some of the white flour with some whole wheat pastry flour. I just don't want to compromise the taste or the texture.
For the filling I used:
1/4 cup of melted butter
3/4 cup raw sugar mixed with 2 TBS of orange zest (I peeled an orange and threw it in my food processor till it was "zested".
Roll out dough onto a flour surface. Make it into a nice thin rectangle. Spread melted butter, sugar mixture and then top evenly with frozen or fresh blueberries. Roll up lengthwise and pinch seam. Slice into 1 inch rolls and place in a greased pan. Bake for 23 minutes at 350 degrees.
1 whole orange juiced,
2 TBS of orange zest
1 1/2-2 cups of powdered sugar
a dash of salt
