Blueberry Sweet Rolls
Oh my goodness, Blueberry Sweet Rolls are divine! These heavenly rolls will make you drool until the cows come home. 🙂 They have a fresh blueberry filling and a potent, sweet, buttercream icing on top to die for. Yes, we will be making these sweet rolls a lot in the years to come. My cherry version was awesome too!
I am deeply indebted to my daughter-in-law, Candice, for the inspiration for these sweet rolls. We went to visit our grand kids in early December and I begged for her dinner rolls. I didn’t realize that she used the same recipe for her cinnamon rolls. Another great thing? You don’t have to knead the dough! The dough is kneaded in the breadmaker. It’s just too easy. It takes almost 4 hours from beginning to end, but so well worth it.
After we got back from our Pennsylvania trip we had appointments one Friday in mid-December. I wanted to drop off a lot of Christmas cookies and goodies to friends in the Midlothian area where we used to live. We had some friends that used to be in our weekly Friday night Bible study come see us for Thanksgiving. We had set up a time for us to have dinner with them on that day. Brad loves anything with blueberries, so I decided to give this recipe a go with blueberries. Wow! They were everything scrumptious and none of us could stay out of them.
I can’t recommend Blueberry Sweet Rolls enough for a weekend, company or holiday breakfast. While they are great to eat the day you make them, they are also good a few days later! If you have a breadmaker, you’ve got to give this easy version of homemade sweet rolls a try. Don’t be surprised if all your family want you to make another batch right away!
Blueberry Sweet Rolls are spectacular!
Blueberries just ooze out of these amazing sweet rolls.
This was the pan of Blueberry Sweet Rolls I took to our friends. 🙂
Blueberry Sweet Rolls are really rich. I recommend serving them with bacon or sausage and eggs!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the dough.
Cut butter up into small slivers and distribute evenly on the bottom of the breadmaker canister.
Add warmed half-and-half or whole milk.
Add bread flour and sugar.
Add salt and yeast.
Place on “dough” setting of breadmaker. This will take approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.
Roll out dough onto a clean surface.
I used these ingredients for the filling, except I did not use the vanilla.
Spread softened butter over top of dough.
Sprinkle brown sugar over top. With the palm of your hand, gently spread the brown sugar as evenly over top of the butter as possible. Try to fill in the gaps and crevices as you do this.
Evenly spread the blueberries over top.
Roll up as tightly as possible.
After rolling up the dough, you’ll use a sharp knife to cut the rolls into pieces.
Grease your baking dish. A 9×13″ baking dish will hold about 12 rolls. This smaller dish holds six. Place rolls in dish. Warm oven for one minute and then turn off oven. Place rolls in warm oven to raise. Every 20 minutes or so, turn the oven on and heat for only one minute. Allow rolls to raise in warm place for about 1 hour 15 minutes.
I used these ingredients to make the icing.
Place softened butter and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix with an electric mixer for a few minutes until creamy.
Spread icing over top of hot rolls as soon as they come out of the oven.
Eat and enjoy!
I love that I don’t have to knead the dough before making this recipe. It’s so much easier to let the breadmaker do all the work!
Drool, baby, drool!
Blueberry Sweet Rolls are awesome just out of the oven.
Here’s the recipe.
