Zest the orange; set zest aside. Peal orange and remove pips; cut orange into chunks. Combine zest and fruit in a blender and purée. Pour orange pulp into bread machine pan.
Add honey, oil, flour, salt and yeast to the orange pulp. Select dough setting, and start the bread machine. Adjust consistency with orange juice or flour as needed to achieve a soft pliable dough.
When dough cycle is complete divide dough into 2 or 3 pieces. Roll out to a thickness of .5cm (1/4 in). Sprinkle with brown sugar, cardamom, and dried cranberries. Roll up dough with goodies inside, and slice 2cm to 4cm thick. Place rolls in a lightly greased baking dish. Allow enough room between the rolls so that they rise properly. Let rise in a warm spot for approximately 1 hour.
Bake in a preheated 190 C / Gas mark 5 oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan, and place on wire rack. Serve warm.
As written this recipe just does not work out, it needs extra liquid. I have made these rolls twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly, set my bread maker and came back to what looked like breadcrumbs. So I through it out and started again. I used the basic recipe but added ¾ cup of orange juice. This really was what the recipe required - 12 Jan 2013

Used different ingredients.
I too believe there is too much cardamom in this recipe, but I countered it with 2 tsp. of cinnamon, and it helped a lot. I also added 2 Tbsp. of dark brown sugar to the dough as well. Very good alternative to more fattening breakfast breads, and the aroma is fabulous. - 14 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts.
These would have been great but - that's a LOT of cardamom. Cardamom is a very strong flavour and 1 teaspoon is just TOO much! I will make these again, but I'm going to use 1/2 the amount. - 14 Jul 2008
