Use Your F Words

Orange Cinnamon Rolls | recipe developed by | #recipe #breakfast

Today’s post is a monthly writing challenge. If you’re new here, this is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once. All of the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s  participating knows who got their words and in what direction the recipient will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
I'm using: frivolous ~ fatal ~ fluffy ~ featured ~ final ~ feeble

What's the matter, Diane? You don't like fudge? It's fuel for the soul. And food you don't have to eat with a fork.

In fact, where's the fish (with fries, please)? Fresh fruit? Figs perhaps?

Now fava beans, I don't blame you for skipping. Thanks to Hannibal Lecter they're officially forgettable, fear inciting.

But there's always fondue. Feta's quite flavorful. If you like dipping (who doesn't) a flowing chocolate fountain is fierce.

What about drinks? It's only fitting we add a few. I favor a frozen frappe? Oh, add some Frangelico, now that sounds fab.

And just to be inclusive, how about some "f" words with international flair, French onion soup, fettuccine, falafel. And don't forget fajitas and frittatas

Jeez, wonder why I'm famished. Feeling faint, even.

Luckily, I can feast on today's featured recipe, these fluffy Orange Cinnamon Rolls.

Had your fill? I'll bid you farewell (for today, anyway) with my final, frivolous, feeble (but hopefully not fatal), attempt at "f" word domination, let me just say this: I tried to embrace the frightening (but fair) nature of these word choices, Diane, and whether I succeeded or failed, you are still my friend. And that's despite your obvious floccinaucinihilipilification of fudgeFact.

OK, I admit it, that was fun

Orange Cinnamon Rolls

1 (1#) loaf frozen bread dough
4 TBSP butter, softened
4 TBSP cookie butter (speculoos)
2 TBSP fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tsp orange zest

3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp orange juice

*Lightly grease a piece of plastic wrap, enclose the dough in the wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours.
*Whisk together the butter, cookie butter, 2 TBSP orange juice, and orange zest. Set aside.
*Grease a 9 X 13 baking pan.
*Flour a rolling surface, place the dough on the flour, cover the dough with the plastic wrap and roll out to about 16 inches long and 9 inches wide.
*Spread the butter mixture onto the dough. Using one long side, roll the dough all the way up to the other long side, creating a 16 inch long tube.
*Cut the dough into 18 evenly sized piece. Place them, flat side down, into the prepared pan. Gently press down.
*Cover the top of the pan with the plastic wrap, and allow to rise for 4 - 5 hours.
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove the plastic wrap from the pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
*Whisk together the powdered sugar and remaining 2 tsp orange juice. Drizzle over the warm rolls.


  1. Fun! I was hoping you'd get to frittata. That's been a recent entry in our repertoire. So much easier to make than I imagined and so yummy!

  2. Lol. That was fun. Happy Weekend! Donna.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it. I have to admit I had fun writing it.`

  3. So many food "f" words, and a vocabulary word. Floccinaucinihilipilification. I had to look it up. It has an interesting history and yes, it was a made up word. Sort of.

    1. Well, of course, all words were made up, but it is a word!

  4. Fun and totally FABULOUS!!! Love this! Now I want fudge...

  5. I just finished dinner, but reading all your F words is making me hungry!

  6. Nice F'ing challenge! I like your rolls. I don't know if I've used the combination of orange and cinnamon, but it sounds like a natural.

  7. A fine feature, this post and recipe.
