Have the napkins handy because these gooey and sticky Sweet Orange Ginger Rolls will have your fingers in a mess. With a cup of jam these rolls are overloaded with sticky sweetness and a delicious way to get a little messy.
The yeast rolls themselves are light and tender with a hint of orange and ginger. The added orange zest and zest of the orange marmalade give a little contrast to the abundance of sweetness. In this recipe I used a combination of orange marmalade and apricot jam because that was what I had on hand. Either will work fine on their own but feel free to use one for the filling and the other for the topping if desired.
Using a sharp knife is essential when cutting the dough into rolls, otherwise the dough will squish down and the filling will ooze out. A little of this is bound to happen but too much and the rolls will become sloppy. So have a little patience and cut slowly and gently. You also want to make sure you flip the rolls over and out of the pan when they come out of the over; otherwise they start to stick in the pan as the sugar hardens around the edges making it more difficult to turn them out.
I love these Sweet Orange Ginger Rolls because they’re a sunny brunch wrapped up in a yeast roll. Also great with a cup of coffee and a lazy morning. Enjoy!
