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.
- 250 g (8.8 oz) white flour - spelt or wheat
- 140 ml (1/2 cup plus 1 tbs) warm soy milk
- 40 g (1.4 oz) sugar
- 40 g (1.4 oz) melted, vegan butter
- 1/2 package dry yeast
- 1 pinch salt
- 300 g (10.5 oz) frozen wild blueberries
- 40 g (1.4 oz) sugar
- 1/4 tsp ground vanilla
- 2 tbs frozen wild blueberries (taken from the filling)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract - or 1 tsp water and some ground vanilla
- 100 g (3.5 oz) icing sugar
- 1 dash lemon juice
- In a bowl mix the ingredients for the dough and knead thoroughly about 5 minutes. Set aside and let rest for about 45 minutes, until it doubled it's size.
- When the dough has risen, roll it with a rolling pin and some flour on the counter in a rectangle shape (ca. 30 x 40 cm - 12 x 16 inches).
- Preheat the oven to 50° C (120° F) and turn it off. Grease a baking dish.
- For the frosting measure 2 tbs frozen blueberries and set aside.
- For the fillig mix the frozen blueberries with sugar and vanilla and spread it on the rolled dough.
- Leave 3 cm of the edges without filling.
- Roll up the dough from the long side and cut off slices about 3 cm thick. Place the slices, cutting side up, in the baking dish, put it in the warm oven and let them rest for about 30 minutes.
- Keep the dish in the oven and heat it up to 200° C (390° F). After baking 20 - 25 minutes the rolls should be golden and done. Let them cool a bit while preparing the frosting.
- For the frosting pour the vanilla extract and the blueberries in bowl and smash it up, strain through a sieve. Into the juice stir in the powdered sugar and a dash of lemon juice.
- Sprinkle over the hot rolls and let them cool down a bit. Serve warm.
