Sticky Orange Marmalade Rolls

Sticky Orange Buns

I just came back from a long, exhausting but super amazing weekend with my family! My brother got married this weekend and I saw family members that I haven’t seen for years. The wedding was a great family gathering and together with some friends we celebrated the whole day long! How quick a wedding can be! Before you know it, the wedding is already over again and all that is visibly left are two shiny rings and eyes ❤

The last few days showed me again what the most valuable things in life are: family and friends and spending as much time with them as possible! I miss them already and I hope that I can find some more time this year to see them as often as possible.

Some time ago I was baking these Sticky Orange Marmalade Buns and I think they would be great to share them with your family or friends on a quite Sunday afternoon.

After looking through my pantry I found a glass of nice Danish Orange Marmalade and I immediately knew that I would use it. The first thought I came up with was to bake yeast buns.

Sticky marmalade and cinnamon buns just because we can (and because cinnamon is not only for Christmas).

I used the recipe for the custard buns I made some time ago, but this time I slightly changed the recipe and I made a great short cut: I made the dough the evening before, which takes no longer than half an hour and let it rise over night in the fridge! I have actually never tried this one before, but my Mum told me that it works just as well. Just cover the dough with clingfilm to avoid that the dough will dry out in the fridge. The next day I let it set at room temperature for about half an hour before I started rolling the dough. It works really amazing and you should definitely give it a try as you will end up with fresh buns out of the oven in no time the next morning  🙂
