Fresh Blueberry Sweet Rolls - mmm...

I don’t know why I’ve never thought of combining blueberries and cinnamon... what a novel idea! The flavors compliment each other so well. These rolls are soft and pillowy, and finding the cache of cinnamon-blueberry fruitiness is such a nice surprise in each bite. I honestly can’t even imagine a normal cinnamon roll again.

This is a "night before" recipe, and it was so convenient popping them into the oven for hot rolls for breakfast, without having to shape them first. I wonder if these would be as wonderful with frozen blueberries, and I’ve decided I won’t try that until winter - when we all dream of fresh fruit. As long as you press them into the dough while still frozen, I can’t imagine it not working. It may produce a little more juice this way though - which can’t be a bad thing!?

These are best served a few hours after baking - which allows the berries to get juicy and release that beautiful blue/red juice into the rolls. When the cinnamon/blueberry juice combines with the icing, they are irresistible!

  1. These look amazing! If they have blueberries they are healthy - right?

  2. Of course! (I like your outlook on this...) I was feeling pretty miserly taking out half the butter though!

  3. Oh good grief! These sound so amazing. I must make these! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog and I'm following!
