This is a super fun and easy way to make delicious cinnamon buns right inside hollowed out oranges. Leaving just enough orange meat inside the cups gives the cinnamon rolls the perfect zesty orange flavour.


The best part about these is you can also make them right over a fire - great for camping!

I makes dozens of these a week and my customers love that they are not overly sweet or gooey.

Cut each biscuit in long strips. Starting at the edge of biscuit and cutting in a circle. Melt butter in cake pan in oven, leave about 2 tablespoons in the bottom of pan and put remaining butter in a separate bowl.

I was hungry for cinnamon rolls the other morning and I had a can of Grands Biscuits in the refrigerator. I took each biscuit and rolled it into a circle, spread it with butter, topped it with cinnamon and brown sugar and raisins.


I cut them in half and put them in a greased muffin tin. Baked at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For cinnamon rolls, unroll crescent dough into 1 large rectangle; press perforations together with fingers to seal. Spread butter evenly over dough.

When making cinnamon rolls, instead of cutting the roll into segments with a knife, which tends to squish them, just cut a length of dental floss or heavy thread about 10 or 12 inches long.

The frozen bread dough that comes in the 2 or 3 packs, makes great rolls. I think there are even directions on the package. Can also make cinnamon pull apart, defrost and let rise, melt butter and make a bowl of cinnamon sugar. Coat pan with butter and take walnut size pieces of dough, dip in butter, roll in cinn/sugar, pile in pan.


Bake and yummy! It's messy, good for the kids to get to do, because you'll get messy one way or another. Can also sprinkle raisins or any other chopped dried fruit in with the layers of dough as you stack. Hope that helps some.

(Yield: 15 Servings)

2 cups "JIFFY" Baking Mix
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup soft margarine or butter
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 425°.
Grease 11"x7" pan or muffin pans.

Blend Baking Mix and milk. Turn onto surface dusted with Baking Mix and knead about 20 times. Pat or roll dough 1/4" thick rectangle 8"x15". Spread with soft margarine and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll as for a jellyroll. Cut into 1" pieces. Place in prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes. Serve warm.

If desired, while warm, frost with "JIFFY" White Frosting.

I used this recipe and made these cinnamon rolls, but had to add more jiffy mix wasnt enough to knead it. I made my own icing with milk, powdered sugar and vanilla.
