Cake Sweet

The only summer sweet roll recipe you need

Move over, cinnamon rolls. There is a new queen of the breakfast table, and this lemon roll is as light and fresh as a summer day.

Lemon sweet rolls are the perfect breakfast pastry for the summertime: Tangy, bright and gently sweet, these flaky pastries are best enjoyed with a side of sunshine and a cup of coffee. Find the full recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction.

To make these lemon sweet rolls, you will need to first mix up the dough (flour, sugar, water, salt, butter, milk and yeast) and the filling (butter, sugar, lemon zest and real vanilla from a vanilla bean). Roll out the dough and sprinkle the filling all over, then put the rolls into a warm oven until they have nearly doubled in size. While the rolls rise, you can prepare the filling.

After your rolls rise, you will cover them with a sweet cream cheese frosting made from powdered sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest. You can spread on the frosting while the rolls are still warm and then serve immediately.

You can cut down on your morning prep time by making the dough and the filling the night before, then letting the rolls come to room temperature for about an hour before baking. After that, all you have to do is mix up the cream cheese frosting and spread it on top of the warm rolls … then try to keep from devouring the pan in one sitting!
