Blueberry Rolls

So warm and sticky

These are a great way to use some fresh blueberries.

Blueberry Rolls


  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-4 tbsp milk

Mix brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries and let macerate for 30 minutes. Mash berries and add cornstarch and mix well. In a large bowl mix flour sugar and yeast. Add salt and mix again. Heat milk, butter and water until butter melts, add to flour and mix into a rough dough. Add egg and mix well, then add enough flour to form a smooth dough while kneading for 8 minutes. Let rest 20 minutes then roll out into a rectangle about 12″x16″. Spread crushed berry mix over dough leaving 1″ of dough at long edge clean. Spread remaining fresh berries over filling and roll into a tight log. Cut into 10-12 equal sized wheels and place on a greased baking tray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours. Bake in an oven at 375 degrees until browned and done, about 25 minutes. Mix glaze ingredients together and drizzle over hot buns. Serve.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
