Ingredients
Dough
  • 1 package active dry yeast 2 1/4 tsp
  • 1/2 c warm milk 105-115 degrees
  • 1/2 c orange juice fresh or bottled
  • 3-3 1/2 c all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Filling
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 c orange marmalade
  • 1 to 1 1/2 c blueberries
Orange Glaze
  • 1 - 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp butter melted
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice fresh
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp milk
Instructions
Dough
  1. Dissolve yeast into 1/2 cup of warm milk. Once it turns foamy you know it's activated (about 4-5 minutes). If it doesn't turn foamy, your yeast is dead and you'll need to use another packet.
  2. Mix (in a standing mixer or hand held) yeast with orange juice, butter, sugar, salt, egg, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add flour slowly, as to not explode flour everywhere. Start with 3 cups of flour.
  4. Mix dough until it pulls away from the bowl and turns into a ball. If the dough is sticky, add in the extra 1/2 cup of flour. If the dough is springy, it's ready.
  5. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes. Form into a ball.
  6. Place in an oiled bowl (I used cooking spray) and allow it to double in size, overnight in the fridge or for 1 1/2 - 2 hours in a warm place**
Filling
  1. Punch down the dough and roll it out into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface. The dough should be about 14x8" or 1/8" - 1/4" thick.
  2. Spread 2 Tbsp of butter over the dough, then spread 1/4 cup of orange marmalade over the butter.
  3. Mix together sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle over the marmalade.
  4. Spread 1 cup blueberries over the rolls. If you want more blueberries, sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of blueberries over the rolls.
  5. Tightly roll up the dough and cut into 12-15 even slices.
  6. Place in two 9" greased cake pans (or any baking dish you have) making sure there is space between each roll. Allow to rise once again for 30 minutes, or until the rolls have risen and are touching each other.
  7. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-17 mintutes, or until golden brown.
Orange Glaze
  1. Mix melted butter, orange juice, zest, powdered sugar, and milk together. Once it reaches your desired consistency, pour over the warm cinnamon rolls.
  2. Eat and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

**Preheat the oven to 175 degrees, turn it off, then allow the dough to rise in there. Make sure to cover the dough with a lightly damp towel.
