Orange and Cinnamon Buns

We seem to be drowning in oranges, so I made Orange and Cinnamon Buns - they are delightfully soft and fluffy and great with a good cup of tea.

For the dough

You can mix by hand (knead about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic) or I put mine in the bread maker pizza setting.

Mix together 
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup of milk
1 large egg
45 grams softened butter
3 cups of bread flour
1/2 cup sugar
grated zest of the oranges
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons of salt (unless you used salted butter and then I don't add this)
2 teaspoons of dried yeast.

Prove until about double in size./

Knock back and then divide into 12 balls - this fits into a swiss roll tin.

Prove again until about double in size - they rise very nicely in a warm spot.

Bake at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, until golden.

Ice with a simple icing of icing sugar, orange juice and know of butter. 

As you can see above I iced mine when still very hot - let them cool about 5/10 minutes before icing.
