Blueberry Buns With Icing

Diana Rattray
Dried blueberries and cinnamon make these bread machine buns extra-flavorful, and they're perfect for the morning rush. Make these buns a day in advance and pop in the microwave or oven just until warm.


  • 1 cup milk, lukewarm
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 scant teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3 to 4 ounces (3/4 to 1 cup) dried blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ***Icing***
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons hot water or milk, plus more for consistency


Grease a 9-inch square or round baking pan.

Whisk milk with egg and vanilla. Add milk mixture, flour, sugar, salt, butter, and yeast, in the order suggested by your bread machine manufacturer.

Set on dough cycle and add the blueberries and cinnamon at the beep for adding ingredients. If the dough seems very sticky (or very dry) at this point, add a bit of flour (or water) in very small amounts.

On a floured surface, punch the dough down. Break off pieces of dough and shape into balls. Place side-by side in the prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. Heat oven to 350°. Beat the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons of water and brush lightly over the tops of the buns. Bake the blueberry buns for 20 to 25 minutes, until nicely browned.

For icing, put confectioners' sugar in a bowl. In a microwave-proof cup or small bowl, combine butter with water and vanilla. Microwave until butter is melted and mixture is very hot. Pour into the confectioners' sugar and mix until well blended and smooth. Add very small amounts of hot water until you get a good drizzling consistency. I put the mixture in a squeeze bottle and warm again in the microwave before drizzling over the buns, but you can drizzle with a spoon.

Excellent blueberry bread and pull apart rolls, Member fudgie44

I live in Maine for the summer and have wonderful blueberry bushes from which to pick. Coming down to Florida for the winter, I tried drying my own blueberries to make transport easier. When I came across this recipe I decided to try it out. Wonderful!! Excellent blueberry taste. It makes a wonderful bread or pull apart rolls. I make sure to bake it for the full amount of time so it can cook completely throughout. I have also made the bread with an egg wash and sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar instead of using the icing.
