Raspberry Sweet Rolls take traditional sweet rolls to a whole new level!

Raspberry Sweet Rolls filled with a raspberry filling.

These raspberry sweet rolls take full advantage of raspberry season! 

You know how I love to use produce fresh out of the garden. Right now the raspberries are producing like crazy. They are a bit late this year due to the cool rainy spring we had. Better late than never, is what I always say.

Fresh raspberries for raspberry sweet rolls

I try to eat and use as many fresh raspberries as possible, but I also love to freeze raspberries.

We use frozen raspberries all year long in raspberry scones, raspberry muffins, raspberry almond cake...the list goes on and on. Yep, raspberries are one of my favorites.

My newest recipe is Raspberry Sweet Rolls and they are delicious!

Raspberry Sweet Roll served on a plate with fresh raspberries.

This recipe uses the same dough I use in my cinnamon rolls and apricot sweet rolls. It’s a pretty versatile dough. I think you could also make blueberry sweet rolls and apple cinnamon sweet rolls….the list just goes on and on!

    These rolls look so good and I’m glad to see that you are using your digital ‘movie camera.’ I bought one several months ago and have to now learn how to use it for my blog!

    3 eggs? I might give it a try with blueberries which I have more in abundance right now than raspberries. But it does look really good with the raspberries. Yum!

    Our raspberries are running a bit late here, too. We’ve had the same rainy spring and summer, but I’m hoping we start getting a bunch soon. So I love sweet rolls, but I’ve never thought about putting a filling of fresh fruit in there. I totally need to make these. They sound like a great weekend breakfast!!

    These are beautiful Kathy and how lucky you are to have fresh homegrown raspberries! I’m getting my tail end to the store tomorrow to buy some berries and make these sweet rolls for dessert. Then have leftovers for Monday morning breakfast with coffee! That’s a great start to the week 🙂
