Blueberry Sweet Rolls - The perfect breakfast for a spring morning.

Alli here from Cupcake Diaries! We are absolutely loving the beautiful spring weather we are having here in Northern Utah. Some days it feels like summer. I’m jealous of my kids’ already sun kissed skin tones.

We had family in town a few weeks ago and I wanted to make them a delicious breakfast that would be different than the usual cereal and toast. Sweet rolls are always so good for breakfast. And blueberries sounded perfect! I made them these Blueberry Sweet Rolls and they were a big hit.

I know what you’re thinking and the answer is yes. They really do taste as good as they look! Don’t you just love that beautiful purple color from the blueberries? The key is to use frozen blueberries so the juices will ooze everywhere and make the pretty purple streaks throughout the rolls. The glaze has a hint of lemon, giving it just the right amount of tart to the sweetness. So yummy!

Blueberry Sweet Rolls
Author: 
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 16 sweet rolls
 
Ingredients
For the Dough
  • 1 c. milk
  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • 1½ Tbsp active dry yeast (2 packets)
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 c. bread flour
For the Filling
  • 1 – 10 to 12oz package frozen blueberries, still frozen
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
For the Glaze
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Heat the milk to 95 degrees in the microwave or in a saucepan. Add the milk and sugar to a stand mix bowl. Stir together with a spoon, then sprinkle the yeast over the mixture. Let it sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the butter, eggs, and salt and mix with hook attachment on low. Beat in the flour and increase speed to medium. Continue beating for 3 minutes, or until a soft dough forms.
  3. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat the dough for 10 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour by the spoonful.
  4. Form the dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour, or until double in size.
  5. Line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle a little flour on the counter top and place the dough ball on top. Roll into a 10×24 inch rectangle.
  6. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the dough, leaving about an inch of space along the bottom length of the rectangle. Sprinkle the frozen blueberries over the sugar and cornstarch.
  7. Tightly roll the dough to form a 24-inch log. Working quickly, cut the dough log in half, then cut each of those two pieces in half, making four separate dough logs. Cut each dough log into 4 evenly sized slices. Place each roll in the prepared pan, cut sides up.
  8. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let rise for 2 hours.
  9. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the rolls for 20 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before adding the glaze.
  10. Prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, lemon juice, and vanilla. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls and serve.

  1. girl these look amazing!! So yummy!!

  2. after cutting into roll size could I freeze 1/2 as it’s only me here now?

  3. Have made Cinnamon Rolls and Cinnamon Bread but not these rolls. Don’t you combine the blueberries, cornstarch and sugar together? Yes I read the instructions but that combining the ingredients seem logical. Do you have to sift the flour and sugar? These sound very delicious! Love anything Blueberry!

  4. Looks yummi, but i’m from Greenland and i would like to know how much weight that stick of butter is?
