To be honest: These blueberry and vanilla rolls probably wouldn’t win a beauty competiton. But they were so delicious, that I have to share the recipe with you.
A couple of days ago I had a craving for cinnamon rolls. (It might have been because of this autumn-like weather lately ?). But I wanted something more fruity. So I had this vision of blueberry rolls.

So I got into the kitchen, grabbed my mixing bowl and started baking. The result are these blueberry vanilla rolls. If you don’t have much time you can use a store-bought yeast dough.
