Ingredients:

  • Dough:
    • 4.5 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2.5 cups whole milk or oat milk (warm)
    • 14g instant yeast
    • 1 cup of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 150g butter or vegan butter, room temperature
  • Blueberry sauce:
    • 250g blueberries
    • 1 teaspoon of cardamom
    • 4 tablespoons of water
    • 6 tablespoons of sugar
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Icing:
    • 170g of fresh cheese
    • 75g butter, room temperature
    • 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
    • 3 tablespoons blueberry sauce
  • Additional:
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions:

  1. Start the dough by combining the yeast, warm milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar in a large bowl. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes to activate the yeast.
  2. Stir in 4.5 cups flour until just incorporated. Let this pre-dough rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Gradually add the butter, remaining sugar, salt, and 2 3/4 cups flour, mixing then kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  5. Prepare the blueberry sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until thickened, then let cool slightly.
  6. Roll out the risen dough into a rectangle on a floured surface, spread the blueberry filling evenly and roll up the dough. Cut into rolls using a wire or a sharp knife.
  7. Arrange the rolls in a baking dish, let them rise for another 10-15 minutes, then pour the heavy cream over them.
  8. Bake at 200°C (370°F) for 30 to 40 minutes.
  9. For the frosting, beat together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons blueberry sauce until smooth.
  10. Once the rolls have cooled, spread the icing on them and decorate as desired.
