Strawberry Buttermilk Rolls

Last week we were running our normal errands. We made a quick stop to the 99cent store where I scored 10 gorgeous mum plants. I absolutely love the 99cent store…you never know what gem you will find.  I really don’t understand people who put their nose up to that store. I think it is awesome!

Anyway on the way home, I saw that our favorite strawberry stand was open. I bought a 1/2 flat of huge juicy strawberries perfect for dipping. Fresh (cheap) flowers, delicious strawberries and the sun shinning bright, Spring was in the air.

Perfect Strawberry Sweet Rolls

So, to welcome spring I made these rolls. They would be perfect for an afternoon snack or Sunday morning brunch. The rolls are light, fluffy and fruity, and taste great with the cream cheese frosting.

Strawberry Buttermilk Rolls


  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for rolling
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 strawberry jam
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped strawberries (optional)
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  1. In a microwave safe dish, heat buttermilk for 30 seconds. You want it to be warm, but not hot.
  2. Once buttermilk is warm, add oil and stir to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together buttermilk and oil and yeast with a spoon. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Add 3 cups of flour and egg to the bowl and knead manually or using dough hook until combined. If dough is still sticky after all the flour has been kneaded in, add remaining 1/2 cup of flour and knead until the dough it soft and no longer sticking to the sides.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a large rectangle approximately 1/2inch thick.
  6. Spread softened butter evenly over the surface of the dough.
  7. Spread strawberry jam and chopped strawberries over the surface of the dough.
  8. Beginning with the horizontal side closest to you, tightly roll dough to opposite side, pinching the seam together at the end.
  9. Cut rolls into 12 even pieces and place in a greased 9x13 pan.
  10. Cover pan with a warm damp cloth and allow rise for about 25 minutes in a dark warm place.
  11. Once rolls have risen, bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
  12. Glaze
  13. Whisk cream cheese, milk and powdered sugar until smooth.
  14. Pour over warm rolls.

  1. These are so gorgeous! Seriously, I am dying at that shot of the baked, puffed rolls with strawberry spilling out…so beautiful! And I hear you on the 99-cent store love. The only problem with that place is that I impulse-buy a ton of stuff so what could be a 99-cent trip always turns into a $25 trip.

  2. I love the idea of fresh strawberries in this roll, plus the glaze looks so amazing!!

  3. Those rolls are beautiful,I love anything with buttermilk!

  4. I’ve never heard of strawberry rolls, but now I think I need to try them! They look delicious and I have a huge container of strawberries sitting on my counter right now.
