Looks wonderful..and I'm sure the scent in the kitchen when they were baking was amazing!
February 20, 2011 at 9:50 am
@Susan Sorry, Mom, they're gone already. 🙁
February 20, 2011 at 9:51 am
@Sarah When you do, Sarah, let me know how they work for you!
@Marlow Ha! Well, when you DO feel like it, make 2 pans right away and freeze one to rise & bake another day, that way you can enjoy them AND be lazy. 😉

@Vintage Barn 27 Welcome here, Vintage Barn! All the recipes here are GF, and I don't think we're lacking anything. 🙂
@Kim-Cook it Allergy Free Thanks, Kim! I've got some ideas of different flavours bouncing around my mind now…something with chocolate would be especially good. 😉 Maybe some chopped peanuts… hmm…

@Eliana You won't regret it, Eliana!
@GF Gidget They are sort of a "lighter" alternative to cinnamon buns…same concept, but with fruit. Still good though. 🙂
February 20, 2011 at 9:54 am
@betty r They smelled fantastic, Betty! Almost as good as my pancakes with orange zest & chocolate chips this morning. 🙂

these look so yummy! i will definitely try these.why use the guar gum, is it super important? because i can't find it in my health foods store. can i sub it with something else?
February 23, 2011 at 9:57 pm
@georgescookie I use the guar gum & xanthan gum in combination, just because I've read that they work well together (and this dough is well, just not 100% sure that it makes a difference). Feel free to use 1 extra tsp of xanthan gum instead of the guar.

ooooh YUM! with some café con leche. ye, please!
February 25, 2011 at 10:15 am
@Bren Bren, after googling what Cafe con leche was, I totally agree with you! Yes please! 🙂
February 25, 2011 at 1:22 pm
Oh wow- these look good! I love baked goods with lemon or orange. Or lime. OK, citrus of any kind. The pudding is an interesting twist, does it add a lot of flavor, or keep them moist or ??
February 25, 2011 at 1:30 pm
@Rhonda I LOVE citrus too (have you seen the lemon cake I have on this blog…swoon…I picked up the pudding mix trick from the Cake Mix Doctor's gluten-free book. I believe it adds some sugar and protein, and helps the dough stay a little moister.
March 3, 2011 at 3:39 pm
What if I don not have a mixer like yours. Can mixing be done by hand? Or if there another alternative?
March 3, 2011 at 4:58 pm
@AnonymousOne person said they made the cinnamon buns (successfully) without a mixer, and it is the same dough, so with some elbow grease, you should be able to make these.

Gaw, these look good. Love orange rolls.

@Tasty Eats At Home Thank you!
December 4, 2011 at 10:53 am
Yum!! I was just wishing I could have orange rolls again…..thank you, I’ll have to give them a try!
February 20, 2012 at 6:35 pm
Oh me, oh my! I remember growing up with those cans of instant rolls that pop open, bake in 17 minutes, and serve. Orange rolls, cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls (that we added nuts to), all those good things that I’ve missed…Now the last piece of the puzzle has fallen into place! Orange rolls! Yay! (guess what I’m making for the snack at my ladies Bible study this Friday?…) How well do you think it would work to make the rolls, fridge them overnight, THEN let them rise and bake in the morning?
This upcoming weekend is a busy weekend of baking! Gonna make these rolls for my ladies Bible study, gonna make your sugar cookies for my baby shower on Saturday, and then gonna make blackbottom cupcakes for the snack in our fellowship group at church. *phew!* Gonna be busy! ^_^
February 20, 2012 at 6:54 pm
Oh, you are a busy little baker! Did you want to save some time? The orange rolls use the same dough as my cinnamon rolls, so you could make them a few days ahead, cover them before they rise, freeze them, and when you’re ready to bake, set them on the counter to defrost & rise. Otherwise, refrigerating overnight should work just fine too. 🙂 Sounds like a delicious weekend!

Thank you! We have a family tradition of serving orange rolls at Christmas and Thanksgiving. I missed them last year. I am going to try these out and see if I might be able to fool the rest of the family instead of having to make both version.
May 22, 2013 at 8:42 am
These look fabulous; I will try them as soon as I can find the substitute I need. My husband’s mother is highly sensitive to gluten – reacts even more to dairy. Can you suggest a substitution for the vanilla pudding mix?
I look forward to checking out more of your GF recipes. Thanks!

Hi Pat! It is possible to make them dairy free, I’ve made the cinnamon buns dairy free with success, so these should work as well. You can find the substitutions I made on the cinnamon buns post (at the bottom of the recipe), I think that should help you: http://www.thebakingbeauties.com/2011/01/best-gluten-free-cinnamon-buns-or-rolls.html
Another favorite of mine is the Paska rolls – orange & lemon flavour. So good! http://www.thebakingbeauties.com/2012/04/gluten-free-paska-rolls-aka-sunshine-rolls.html

Hi there! Orange rolls are something my husband really misses since being diagnosed, so thank you for this! Question, if I use a flour blend I already have and it contains xanthan gum already, would I omit all the xanthan gum in this recipe? Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2016 at 1:31 pm
I only have experience preparing the recipe as written, Kristi. Sorry!

Hi, I am pretty new gluten free, I love orange rolls. I don’t know what I did wrong, but they came super soft like cake batter I did used coconut milk and add some coconut flakes to the filling as the only substitution. I turned into a cake because I did not want to throw it away. Good flavor, but little bit chewy. I notice you said it’s the same dough as your cinnamon rolls, but the orange rolls have extra 1/2 cup tapioca starch. I love to bake and I love your blog, please help me.
