Orange Roll Breakfast Cake is a sweet orange cake with an orange cream cheese glaze. It tastes like an orange roll without all of the work! Perfect for your holiday breakfast.
Orange Rolls may be one of the most glorious foods on the planet but they are so time-consuming. It's a process of letting the yeast rise, kneading the bread, rolling it out, letting it rise again, baking and then frosting the rolls - it's an all day deal. Here is your ticket to get the flavor of orange rolls in no time at all. It's a moist (the most cringe-worthy word in the dictionary) orange cake that's sure to please your family.
This Orange Breakfast Cake has three layers of cake -- the cake, the orange cream buttered topping, and the sweet orange cream cheese glaze. This Orange Breakfast Cake is made with butter and buttermilk to make it extra tender. The topping is made orange juice, orange zest, butter, and sugar which gives it that rich buttery and fresh orange flavor. The light cream cheese glaze brings it all together!
Christmas morning breakfast has always been a big deal in our home. Growing up we would wake up to the smells of breakfast cake baking in the oven, followed by mugs full of Grandma's famous eggnog, studded with vanilla bean ice cream. It was the one time we could have ice cream for breakfast! After we opened our presents, we sat down to a beautiful breakfast spread and counted our blessings.
Now being a busy Mom of four, Christmas Eve is full of assembling last minute gifts (hello trampoline at 2 am) and wrapping presents, so there isn't much time to prepare a fussy Christmas morning breakfast. This Orange Roll Breakfast Cake is quick and easy to put together and can be made ahead of time. You can serve it with some crispy bacon or farm fresh eggs and Grandma's Famous Egg Nog and you have the perfect Christmas breakfast.
To make Grandma's Famous Egg Nog....it's simple. Put ½ gallon of Egg Nog in a large bowl. Add 1 c. Milk and stir. Using a spoon, drop in small bits of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (we usually use ½ of a half gallon). The ice cream slowly melts and makes a creamy eggnog milkshake that even the "egg nog haters" seem to like. It's the only way we drink egg nog in this home and you will be hooked in no time!
