Orange Lantern Cinnamon Rolls

Blend some classic flavour combinations to make Bacofoil’s Orange Lantern Cinnamon Rolls, the perfect sweet treat to enjoy around the bonfire with friends and family.


  • Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil
  • 1 pack active dry yeast
  • ½ cup of warm water
  • 2 teaspoons of orange zest
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 – 3½ cups flour
  • 10 oranges
  • Icing sugar (optional)


Preparation method

  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a large mixing bowl
  2. Add the orange zest, orange juice, sugar, egg & butter, along with 1 ½ cups of flour. Beat for 30 seconds in a mixer on a low setting then increase the speed to medium for 2 minutes
  3. Stir in the remaining 1½ cups of flour to ensure your dough is easy to knead
  4. Once the dough is ready, turn onto a floured board and knead for another 5 minutes until it’s smooth and elastic
  5. Cover with cling film and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size; this should take around 1½ hours
  6. Once risen, roll the dough into a rectangle, spread with butter and sprinkle well with combined sugar and cinnamon
  7. Then roll the covered dough into a small spiral shape (so that they resemble a Catherine wheel) and fit them into the scooped out tops of the oranges)
  8. Place the slices slightly apart on Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil and bake in an oven 180OC for around 25 – 30 minutes until the rolls are golden brown
  9. With a sharp knife remove the tops of the oranges and place each one in Bacofoil Non-Stick Foil. Place the baked rolls on top of each orange, cover and place on the BBQ until the oranges are soft
  10. Serve with a drizzle of fresh orange juice combined with icing sugar for a tasty snack or after dinner treat!
