Orange Sweet Rolls, Sweet Rolls Recipe

Updated on November 22, 2011

If you have ever been to The Club (pronounced THE Club, not The CLUB) in Birmingham, Alabama at lunch, you've probably encountered an absolutely phenomenal little orange roll in the bread basket. My Daddy took us there for years, and those rolls made me crazy. When I was little I remember trying to hide them in my lap so I could sneak extra home.

I screwed up more variations of these rolls than I could remember before I ran across a recipe for a sour cream based yeast roll. Redemption! The other two elements eluded me a while longer, then I broke the coconut code. Muhahahaha! I'm an evil culinary genius!!!!

I wanted to blog these rolls, and I thought I'd include a picture of The Club in the blog. Well danged if the recipe for the real thing isn't all over the daggone place. It's even been in the Birmingham News. For some reason that made me furious - although I will say I started trying to copycat these well before I could search online for everything under the sun. And I never found a picture of The Club I liked.

These are not actually a perfect imitation. Mine are just a bit sweeter, and more orange intense. Although I never thought I'd say it - I like mine better. I've also discovered several variations in the flavor base along the way that take the same basic dough, and go all over with flavor combination. I'll get those up next - 'cause 24 of these last about 13.267 seconds.
