  • 1 piece Organic orange
  • 100 ml Milk lukewarm
  • 20 g Yeast fresh
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 2 piece Free range eggs
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 packet Vanilla sugar
  • 2 tbsp Flavorless oil
  • 300 g Flour
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp Sugar for sprinkling
  • Raspberry jelly for decorating


  • Wash an organic orange with hot water, rub dry, rub the peel and squeeze out the juice.
  • Mix lukewarm milk with yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in a bowl and let stand for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, oil, orange juice and orange peel well. Pour in the yeast milk. Sift the flour with a pinch of salt and knead in portions (about 10 minutes) until a smooth dough is formed. The dough should be smooth - add a little more flour or milk if necessary.
  • Brush the surface of the dough with a little oil to prevent it from drying out. Cover the dough with a cloth (so that it does not get any draft) and let rise in a warm place (approx. 45 minutes). Best on the heater or in the 40-50 degree warm oven. A wooden spoon in the oven door prevents the dough from getting too warm. The volume should have roughly doubled.
  • Insert a muffin baking tin with paper liners. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Knead the dough again and divide it into 24 small pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Oil the work surface and hands well and roll out four balls into a disc about 8 cm in diameter.
  • Place the slices on top of the other so that one half is covered (Photo 11) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and roll up from bottom to top. Use a sharp knife to cut the rolls exactly in the middle to create 2 roses (photo 13). Shape something into a rose and place in the hollows or paper cases with the cut surfaces facing down.
  • Let the dough rise for another 20 minutes, then bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 25 minutes until golden yellow.
  • Take out of the oven, let cool down a bit and decorate with raspberry jam or a jam as you wish.
  • The small roses taste delicious both warm and cold. They are a nice change for the festive coffee table, enrich breakfast, or are a loving gesture as a souvenir.
