Blueberry Lemon Sweet Rolls

 Now that summer is here and blueberries are plentiful and everyone loves the taste

of lemons............this is a wonderful sweet roll to serve for breakfast or for dessert. 

The lemon and blueberries together make a wonderful taste! 

Dough

1 cup warm milk

1 packet yeast

2 TBS sugar

3 TBS butter(room temperature)

1 large egg

3 cups flour

1 TSP.  salt

Filling

1 cup fresh blueberries

1/2 cup sugar

1 TBS cornstarch

Lemon Glaze

grated zest of 1 lemon

3 TBS lemon juice

1 TBS butter, melted

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

In large bowl, combine milk, yeast, sugar, butter, and egg.  Gradually mix in the flour and salt until ingredients until dough is elastic and slightly sticky.

Place dough into a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled......about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, and cornstarch. Cook and stir over medium-high heat, until berries break down. Bring to a boil stirring often until mixture thickens.  Remove from heat and let cool. 

Lightly grease a 9" X 13" baking pan.

Punch down dough and roll into a 12" X 18" rectangle on a lightly floured surface. 

Spread filling onto dough, leaving about a 1/2" border.  Roll up the dough.  Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into twelve 1" slices.  

Place slices into prepared pan and let rise until doubled in size about 45 minutes

Preheat oven to 350.

Bake for about 16 to 18 minutes or until rolls are lightly browned.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, melted butter, and powdered sugar to make the glaze.  

Drizzle the glaze on top of the baked rolls.

Enjoy!

I have to try that ... I like to bake and cook for life!!! It's so great when it tastes good :-))
We don't have blueberries yet, but forest blueberries frost - of course it's not like fresh - but I think it works ... so let's go when I've bought them :-) Thanks for the recipe.

Thank you for your greetings in my blog ... the floods in the west of Germany were very bad and it is terrible that so many people have died ... I live in the east of the country.
Aid workers from our region drove to the flood area to help.
Be hugged and thank you for your greetings... and I look forward to hearing from you again.
