Ingredients

1/2
cup sugar
1
box (4-serving size) vanilla pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted
2
tablespoons grated orange peel
1
tablespoon orange juice
1
package regular active or fast-acting dry yeast
3/4
cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
2 3/4
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/2
cup sliced almonds, if desired
  • 1 In small bowl, stir together sugar, pudding mix (dry), butter, 1 tablespoon of the orange peel and the orange juice; set aside.
  • 2 In medium bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; stir in Bisquick mix and remaining 1 tablespoon orange peel until soft dough forms. On surface generously dusted with Bisquick mix, gently roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead about 20 times or until smooth. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle with additional Bisquick mix (up to 1/4 cup).
  • 3 Roll or pat dough into 15x9-inch rectangle. Spread 3/4 of the pudding mixture over dough. Beginning at 15-inch side, roll up dough tightly. Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal. Cut into 9 slices.
  • 4 In ungreased 9-inch square pan, spread remaining pudding mixture evenly; sprinkle evenly with almonds. Place dough slices slightly apart on mixture. Cover; let rise in warm place (such as on cooling rack placed over bowl of warm water) 25 to 30 minutes or until double in size.
  • 5 Heat oven to 375°F. Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down onto pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over buns 1 minute; remove pan. Serve buns while warm.
