Vegan Orange Rolls

These Vegan Orange Rolls are fluffy and soft and bursting with the fresh flavor of oranges. The filling -- and the glaze -- are made with orange marmalade. The dough need an overnight rise, but that way, with just a minimum amount of work in the morning, you can be assured of hot-from-the-oven and incredibly delicious rolls for breakfast.

For the filling:

For the orange glaze:


  • Mix the yeast, sugar and water in a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer and let it stand five minutes or until the yeast is frothy and bubbly.
  • Add the orange juice, aquafaba, oil, flour and salt and 2 cups of flour and mix until the dough comes together. Continue to add flour, ¼ cup at a time, until you have a smooth, pliable dough that doesn't stick. Continue to knead a couple more minutes.
  • Form the dough into a smooth ball and place in an oiled bowl, turning the dough over once to ensure it is coated with oil. Cover tightly with cling wrap and set aside in a refrigerator overnight. If you want to make the rolls the same day, set the dough to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled.
  • In the morning, or when ready to shape the rolls, punch down the dough and roll into a rectangle 12 inches long and six inches wide.
  • Spread the orange marmalade for the filling on the surface of the dough. Starting along the long seam, roll the dough as tightly as possible until you have a cylinder 12 inches in length.
  • Cut the dough into 10-12 pieces, equal in size if possible.
  • Place each roll, cut side up, in a 10-inch round or square pan. I used an 8-inch cake pan and things were a bit tight in there which made the rolls rise rather high, but you can use an 9-inch pan if that's your only option. A 10-inch cast-iron skillet would work well too.
  • Cover the rolls with cling wrap or a kitchen towel and set aside to rise in a warm place for an hour until they are puffy and risen.
  • About 20 minutes before baking, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • To bake, place the orange rolls in the oven and bake for 28-30 minutes or until browned on top.

Make the glaze:

  • Mix all the glaze ingredients with a whisk. If using vegan butter, make sure you melt it first.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the rolls and serve warm.
