I don’t know about y’all, but my sweet tooth goes into hyperdrive during the holidays. I’m usually pretty diligent about sticking to a loose paleo diet for about 10 months out of the year. However, during November and December, all that diligence falls by the wayside. It’s not the calories that bother me, either; it’s the heartburn. Unfortunately, two of the biggest offenders are sweets and citrus, which is inconvenient considering my favorite family tradition is making homemade orange sweet rolls for breakfast on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. I’m sharing the recipe for our big fluffy homemade cinnamon rolls below, so keep reading! If you’re in a similar boat, I’ve found that the best way to beat heartburn is to stop it in its tracks with strawberry-flavored Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablet.

Whenever I anticipate needing heartburn relief, I take a dose once a day, every day, for 14 days. No matter what I eat or drink, I’m heartburn-free, and it’s wonderful. Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablet* is the only frequent heartburn medication that literally melts in your mouth (no water needed!) and provides long-lasting protection in just a few days. It’s become a holiday staple for me over the years, and I never leave the house without it.

Homemade Orange Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Love big fluffy homemade cinnamon rolls? You’re in luck! These homemade orange cinnamon rolls are adapted from Trisha Yearwood’s famous recipe, and they’re to die for! The only special equipment needed is an electric mixer with dough hooks. I use a handheld mixer, but a stand mixer would work perfectly, too. Keep reading for the step-by-step tutorial or head down to the bottom of this post for a Pinterest and printer-friendly recipe card.

For the Homemade Cinnamon Roll Dough

From the dough to the sweet orange glaze, these homemade jumbo cinnamon rolls are 100% made from scratch. Here’s everything you’ll need to make the dough: 

  • 1 package active dry yeast 
  • 1/4 cup hot water 
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar 
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more if needed and for flouring
  • 1/2 cup whole milk 
  • 1/4 cup olive oil , plus more for the dough bowl
  • Freshly grated zest of 1 orange plus 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking dish

In a small bowl, whisk together the active dry yeast, hot water, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes, which should be enough time for the yeast to dissolve and fully activate. You’ll know it’s ready when the mixture starts bubbling around the edges and has doubled in size. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, orange zest, juice, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside for later. 

Using a hand mixer fitted with dough hooks, combine the flour, salt, yeast mixture, and orange mixture and knead at a low speed until the dough forms a smooth and elastic ball. This should take around 8 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry, add more orange juice 1 teaspoon at a time. For those of y’all who’ve never made dough with a hand mixer before, this video is super helpful!

Once your dough is smooth and elastic, lightly coat a large bowl with olive oil and add the dough. This keeps the dough from sticking to the bowl as it rises. Next, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise at room temperature for roughly 1 hour until it doubles in size. Then, spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and start preparing the filling.

For the Homemade Cinnamon Roll Filling

Here’s everything you’ll need to make the filling for these homemade orange cinnamon rolls: 

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened, preferably at room temperature
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon 

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick and slightly larger than the baking dish. Spread the butter over the dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border on all sides. Next, using as much brown sugar and cinnamon as you deem necessary (it’s more of an eyeball situation than a formal measurement), generously sprinkle it over the dough until everything looks covered and even.

Next, taking the dough from the long edge, roll it into a cylinder and pinch the ends to seal it. It’s heartbreaking when the rolls fall apart, so don’t skip this step! Depending on how jumbo you want your orange cinnamon rolls, cut into either 8 or 12 rolls and place in the greased baking dish. If they’re not touching yet, don’t worry– they will. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and allow the rolls to rise for about 30 minutes at room temperature until they double in size.

While the rolls are rising, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. After the rolls have doubled in size, remove the plastic wrap and bake for 25-30 minutes until light brown.

For the Homemade Sweet Orange Glaze

About 5 minutes before the rolls are done baking, make a sweet orange glaze by whisking together 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar and 4-5 tablespoons of orange juice in a medium-sized bowl. It may seem like too much sugar for the amount of orange juice, but it works– and if for whatever reason it doesn’t, add more orange juice as needed. While the rolls are still warm, drizzle with homemade orange glaze.

Storage and Serving Tips

Fair warning– this recipe does take over 2 hours, so I like to make mine either the night before. Store your orange cinnamon rolls (covered) in the fridge and reheat when you’re ready to serve. They can also be kept covered at room temperature for up to two days, although I prefer keeping mine refrigerated, since they will keep for an additional week if need be.

Whenever you’re ready to serve, reheat and sprinkle with orange zest for garnish. They’ll be gone before you know it!

  3. 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  4. 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more if needed and for flouring)
  5. 1/2 cup whole milk
  6. 1/4 cup olive oil (plus more for the dough bowl)
  7. Freshly grated zest of 1 orange
  8. 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  9. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  10. Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking dish
For the Filling
  1. 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened, preferably at room temperature
  2. 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
For the Sweet Orange Glaze
  1. 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar
  2. 4 tablespoons of orange juice
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the active dry yeast, hot water, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes, which should be enough time for the yeast to dissolve and fully activate. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, orange zest, juice, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside for later.
  2. Using a hand mixer fitted with dough hooks, combine the flour, salt, yeast mixture, and orange mixture and knead at a low speed for about 8 minutes until the dough forms a smooth and elastic ball.
  3. Once the dough is smooth and elastic, lightly coat a large bowl with olive oil and add the dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise at room temperature for roughly 1 hour until it doubles in size. Meanwhile, spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  4. Once the dough has risen, roll the dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick and slightly larger than the baking dish on a lightly floured surface. Spread the butter over the dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border on all sides. Next, generously sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the dough.
  5. Taking the dough from the long edge, roll it into a cylinder and pinch the ends to seal. Cut into either 8 or 12 rolls and place in the greased baking dish. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and allow the rolls to rise for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
  6. While the rolls are rising, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. After the rolls have just about doubled in size, remove the plastic wrap and bake for 25 minutes until light brown.
  7. While the rolls are baking, whisk together 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar and 4-5 tablespoons of orange juice in a medium-sized bowl. After the 25 minutes has passed and while the rolls are still warm, drizzle generously with homemade orange glaze. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
  1. If the dough is too sticky before baking, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry, add more orange juice 1 teaspoon at a time.
  2. If you like really big and fluffy orange cinnamon rolls like I do, cut the dough into 8 pieces. For more normal-sized rolls, cut into 12 pieces.
  3. For the sweet orange glaze, 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar may seem like too much for the amount of orange juice, but it works. If for whatever reason it doesn’t, add more orange juice as needed.

These orange cinnamon rolls are admittedly heavy (albeit delicious), so I like to serve mine with fresh fruit and juice, too. Again, if sweets and/or citrus give you heartburn, you’ll feel like a new woman within a few days of taking Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets. No more discomfort and no more drawing unpleasant attention to yourself when you should be sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying time with your friends, family, and/or shamelessly curious furry babies. You didn’t think I’d make it through a post without mentioning Nala and Nellie, did you?

Finally, if you’re curious how store-branded Omeprazole compares to Prilosec and other national brands, it treats the same symptoms and works as well for a fraction of the cost. I bought mine at Walmart, but you can grab a pack from any local retailer near you!
