Vanilla and lemon infused buns, filled with blueberries and topped with a lemon glaze!


  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 packet of dry yeast plus 1 teaspoon (10 g)
  • 2/3 cup milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • grated zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 rounded tablespoons powdered sugar for filling
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar for glaze
  • equal amounts of water and lemon juice, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each


  1. Rinse the berries and dry on a paper towel
  2. Heat the milk to 110 degrees F, put 4 tablespoon of the warm milk in a small glass or bowl, add 1 tablespoon of sugar and the yeast, stir until dissolved, let sit for about 10 minutes, it should get a little foamy
  3. Add the butter to the pan with the remaining milk and sugar, heating just enough to melt the butter, cool to room temp
  4. Combine the flour, salt, vanilla, lemon zest, egg yolks, milk butter mixture, and the yeast mixture mixing with a wooden spoon or a dough hook, the batter should be quite thick, cover with a cloth and let rest for 15 minutes
  5. Turn out on a counter or pastry cloth and knead for literally, just a minute, place in a greased bowl, turning so the top of the dough is oiled too, cover and let rise until doubled in size, 45 minutes to an hour
  6. Punch the dough down, and divide into fourths, divide each piece into fourths again, giving you 16 rolls, using your hands, pat and pinch to shape each piece of dough into a circle about 4 inches in diameter
  7. Place blueberries on top of each roll, top berries with about 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar, dip your finger or a pastry brush in water and lightly brush the outside edge of each dough circle as you fold and pinch the edges together to seal, tucking all of your folds underneath the bun, place seam side down on a parchment line baking sheet pan, cover and let rest for 15 minutes, while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes, until nicely brown, remove from oven and mix the powdered sugar with the water and lemon juice to make a glaze, spead over lukewarm buns
