I have been on a big blueberry kick lately. This time of year makes me want to bake up a citrus storm so it only made sense that I should combine the two. I’d love to say that I was the first blogger to use Rhodes bread to make fun flavored cinnamon roll type treats, but I got the basics from Yvonne when she shared her Caramel Apple Rolls! I simply added a little spring time twist with my flavor combination. Lemon Blueberry Rolls! What an amazing sweet roll!

 

First you are going to gather your supplies… One loaf of Rhodes bread (risen), a few lemons, sugar, blueberries, and butter. Make sure you use fresh blueberries for this recipe. It makes all the difference. Lemon Blueberry Rolls! I used Rhodes Bread, make it homemade and so easy.

 

Now we are going to create a lemon sugar. This is so good in any baked good but works especially well in this recipe. Just add zest to some sugar and smash with the back of a spoon until moist and fragrant. Lemon Blueberry Rolls!

 

Next you’ll need to roll out your thawed bread dough. Be patient. This part of the recipe is the most time consuming. It seems to want to roll back into it’s original shape. I promise it will slowly come together. Make a decent sized rectangle and spread with a little melted butter. Lemon Blueberry Rolls!

 

Sprinkle your sugar mixture and some blueberries. I tried to evenly distribute the berries but when you roll up the edges they shift a bit. Lemon Blueberry Rolls!

 

Roll starting at the long end. Pinch together creating a nice seal. Cut into 6-10 rolls and place into a lightly greased pan. Now you are ready to bake! Can you believe how simple that was? Neither could I. Amazing Lemon Blueberry Rolls! These are so different.  I love the lemon zest in this recipe!
I also made a quick glaze out of powdered sugar, lemon juice, and zest. It added a little more of that citrus flavor and balance out the sweetness of the blueberries.

This treat is definitely worthy of a Mother’s Day breakfast OR a anytime treat.
