Every wintry morning requires something hot and fresh from the oven— like these iced breakfast rolls filled with cranberry and orange, and tied in little knots. I’m sharing this recipe in partnership with Gold Medal Flour’s Virtual Bake Day to celebrate scratch baking.
One of my favorite things is to bake with no agenda, on a pure whim, something I’m sad to say doesn’t happen as much as I’d like it to. Spontaneous Friday night chocolate chips cookies, or a loaf of bread to warm up a chilly winter day brings me so much happiness.
And it’s not all about the tasty treat that comes out of the oven (though that’s a big part, to be sure), it’s the whole journey of how it gets there that fills me with satisfaction. I love taking ingredients and working to turn them into something completely different. Baking amazes me that way.
These cranberry-orange breakfast knots start out so simply— just some flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk and yeast. And yet, with time and effort, and the added help of seasonal flavors like cranberry and orange, they become something wonderful and delicious.
A fun change-up from cinnamon rolls or sticky buns, these are the exact breakfast rolls you should include in your holiday baking this season. It also is a great recipe to get the whole family in the kitchen. Kids will get a kick out of tying the dough in knots.
