These Lemon Blueberry Rolls are super soft and fluffy with a lemon blueberry filling and traditional glaze topping. They are SO EASY to make from scratch!
Happy Friday guys! We’re celebrating all weekend long for my husbands birthday! If you follow me on Instagram you may have read how I tried to make him an awesome cake (like this Chocolate Mousse Cake or this Almond Sheet Cake) but all he wanted was a box mix funfetti cake with famous rainbow chip frosting. EEEEK.
What’s a girl to do? Well, yesterday he got his cake and we enjoyed a romantic night out on the town 🙂
The lemon/blueberry combination means springtime to me. With the warm weather in Saint Louis and all of the Easter decorations flooding the stores I am totally ready for spring!
I adapted these Lemon Blueberry Rolls from my favorite Orange Rolls recipe. I added some milk to make them extra tender. They are super light and fluffy and easy to make too. These were devoured in so fast at our house. DELICIOUS!

Have you tried this recipe?!
RATE and COMMENT below! I would love to hear your experience.
Do you use fresh blueberries or frozen?
Fresh are best to ensure even cooking, but frozen should be fine.
Wonderful, thank you very much. They look delicious so going to make this weekend.
Everyone loved them.
A bit of work but worth it.
Easy to make, delicious to eat!
Requires a bit of effort but SOOO Worth it! Delicious!
A little time consuming but TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Does the 5 tsp of sugar go in the milk mixture or the flour mixture? Instructions say to put sugar in both parts. Is there a measurement of sugar that is missing in the instructions. Wanted to make these for Easter tomorrow, but something’s not right. Afraid they won’t turn out if I’m supposed to be putting more sugar in the flour mixture.
Thanks for pointing this out. All 5 tsp are added to the yeast mixture. I have updated the recipe! I hope you enjoy them!
I want to make these, they look so delish! The recipe says to *see note about the flour, I do not see it. Am I overlooking it?
This reminds me of how my sister’s kids beg for her to cook at home because they eat out a lot and my kids beg to eat out because we eat at home all the time. I just can’t believe that your husband would turn down one of your delicious cakes for a boxed funfetti! Maybe it makes sense because you are always baking up amazing things, and he just wants to slum it sometimes.
