- Gradually add flour to the yeast mixture. Heat butter in a small microwave-safe bowl until melted; add to the flour mixture. Add egg and salt. Mix until a soft, sticky dough forms. Transfer dough to the countertop and cover with cling film. Let rest until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Strawberry Rolls with Lemon Glaze
A summery twist on cinnamon rolls, these glazed strawberry rolls can be made ahead to save time in the morning.
First, thank you for all your excitement over my new photography blog! I’ve been looking forward to sharing this new addition to Sally’s Baking Addiction for quite some time and am eager to see where it takes me. Do you have any questions on how to follow my photography blog? Let me know!
Second, I’m finally home. And it feels so, so good. From NYC –> Baltimore –> central PA, I’m finally home in Philly for a week before heading out to Seattle. I’m working on putting together some posts for my photography blog of all this travel! Stay tuned.
Make-ahead strawberry rolls are on the menu this week and there’s no breakfast more tempting. The rolls are soft and fluffy with a homemade strawberry filling, topped off with a sweet and tangy lemon glaze that seeps into every crevice.
Everyone’s had a cinnamon roll before but how many of you can say you’ve had a strawberry lemon roll?! Consider these summer’s version of a cinnamon roll!
You may have already spotted this recipe on People a couple months ago. I first made them when the weather began warming up and have made them almost a half dozen times since. (We do not take weekend breakfast lightly in this house. Go BIG or go back to bed.) Oh, the best part! You can easily freeze the rolls and wake up to warm, gooey, soft, and sweet strawberry rolls in the morning. For freezing directions, see the recipe below.
A Few Quick Tips.
I want everyone to make these rolls successfully because no one should be denied their sweeeeeet strawberry satisfaction! This recipe starts off as a regular yeasted roll. The importance of some dough ingredients:
Use whole milk for the best taste. Whole milk, with its creamy and thick texture, will produce the softest, fluffiest dough. Shocking, I know. 2% works, yes, but whole milk is best! I don’t recommend anything else.
Butter = flavor. You simply cannot create a buttery, tender dough like this without butter! Make sure it is softened. Not melted or cold. Softened to room temperature.
Eggs are everything in dough. Bread dough that is rich with eggs will rise very high because eggs aid in leavening. Not only this, the fat in the yolks help tenderize and lighten up the dough.
Baking with Yeast Guide
Reference this Baking with Yeast Guide whenever you work with baker’s yeast. I include practical answers to all of your common yeast questions!
The strawberry filling is homemade. Because, yes, I like to put you to work in the summer. Kidding! The filling’s actually really really easy. It’s the same filling I use for my strawberry shortcake cupcakes, only slightly scaled down. Nothing artificial or fake, just pure strawberry goodness. Shortcut tip: you can use your favorite strawberry jam or preserves if that’s more convenient. I’m not judging!
The glaze is all lemon, baby! These rolls are kind of like a big ol’ glass of strawberry lemonade. Only 1,000x better because it’s a doughy sweet roll. If lemon isn’t your fave, try my cream cheese icing instead. If lemon IS your fave, you need to try my blueberry version too! (–> Different dough recipe. Today’s dough, with two rises, is a little more tender!)
A few napkins are necessary. These rolls are as sticky as the balmy 100°F++ weather heating up my city. Am I weird?* I’m kind of digging this heatwave. Picnics, parks, outdoor folk concerts. S-U-M-M-E-R!

Healthy Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls
I highly recommend using a 9”-round springform pan! Springform pans have taller sides than most traditional cake pans, so this allows your cinnamon rolls to rise properly without touching the top of the towel in while rising in pan.
Any milk may be substituted in place of the nonfat milk.
For a vegan version, substitute your favorite non-dairy milk and stick-style vegan butter in place of the butter. (You may substitute coconut oil, but the cinnamon rolls will taste different, and the yeast won’t turn frothy when proofing.)
Brown sugar may be substituted in place of the coconut sugar.
I haven’t had good luck substituting gluten-free flours in this recipe. The cinnamon rolls don’t rise the way they do with wheat-based flour due to the lack of gluten.
I highly recommend using a silicone baking mat and a silicone rolling pin to roll out the dough. The dough doesn’t stick to those nearly as much!
It’s really important to finely dice your strawberries. They should be no larger than the size of miniature chocolate chips. This small size ensures (a) that they don’t poke holes through the dough while you roll it up and (b) they fully cook through while baking. I know it takes more time to cut them so small, but it’s completely worth it!
If your strawberries aren’t overly ripe and sweet, then add 1-2 tablespoons (12-24g) of coconut sugar or brown sugar to the filling.
Leftovers will keep for at least four days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
These strawberry cinnamon rolls can be made pretty quickly, but following these tips below, they will be made successfully.
- Instant yeast can be substituted for active dry yeast, you won’t need to dissolve it in milk first.
- When warming up your milk, be sure it is luke warm. If it is too hot, once the yeast goes in, it will be killed off and your dough won’t rise properly. The ideal temp for proofing yeast is 110 degrees. The yeast will froth up after 5 minutes if it is good.
- If you are running low on time, you can speed up the dough rising process. Turn oven on to 200 degrees. Turn the oven off, cover your dough, and set in the oven with the door closed for about 45 minutes.
- The rolls can be made a day ahead of time, but be sure to leave in warm environment to rest and rise before baking.
Fresh Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls
Tender, flaky cinnamon rolls stuffed with fresh, homemade strawberry sauce and topped with tangy, cream cheese frosting. Yes, these cinnamon rolls quickly rose to the top of the list of our favorites! I’ve made cinnamon rolls with preserves in the filling, and they don’t come close to how good they taste using fresh berries.
And not just any berries, strawberries! One of my favorite fruits. They have been on sale a lot lately, and every time I walk past the display, I find myself grabbing a couple of cartons. Well, we soon ended up with more berries than we could eat fresh before they would start to go bad. When I was thinking of ideas, the cinnamon rolls with the preserve filling popped into my head. I knew right away that I wanted to try making cinnamon rolls with a fresh strawberry filling.
I added some nutmeg and ginger to the traditional cinnamon in the filling to make the flavor of the strawberries more prominent. The cream cheese frosting is less sweet and more tangy so as not to overpower the roll. The combination of flavors makes for a great breakfast treat!

Roll out dough into a 15×10 inch rectangle. Spread the strawberry jam all over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Then evenly cover with the chopped strawberries.

How To Make these Easy Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls
Start off with a package of refrigerated crescent roll dough. Unroll it and then press the seams together.
Spread an even layer of melted butter, cinnamon sugar and some fresh diced strawberries. Roll the dough up into a log and cut into even slices.
Place the rolls in a baking pan or your slow cooker.
Bake at 375 degrees in the oven until golden brown.
If you’re making this in your crock-pot, set on HIGH and cook for 1 hour and then turn to LOW for the remaining 30 minutes to 1 HOUR to prevent it from burning. If your slow cooker runs hot, be sure to check on the rolls a little earlier.
While the cinnamon rolls are baking, you can make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar, milk (or lemon juice for a tangier glaze) and vanilla.
Drizzle over the rolls and you’ve got cinnamon rolls that are soft, gooey and melt in your mouth good!
