The Most Sinfully Rich Blueberry Bacon Cinnamon Bun Recipe

I had a dream, a sweet dream. The dream was filled with soft melt-in-your-mouth bread with sweet cream, blueberries, and bacon. This is how I manifested my Blueberry Bacon Cinnamon Roll & I am sharing this dream with you. Enjoy! 

Shopping list

  • 1 cup blueberry
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar 
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • One packet of active yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water 
  • 4-5 bacon
  • Vanilla extract
  • One package of 8-ounce cream cheese
  • ½ cup of powdered sugar 

Blueberry compote 

Mix 1 cup blueberry, 1/4 cup orange juice, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar until the blueberries start to burst. Remove from the flame and set to the side. 

Wet Mixture 

Warm 1 cup of buttermilk and ¼ cup of butter until it melts. Too hot will kill the yeast and won’t activate your dough if it’s too hot. 

Mix the yeast and warm water in a bowl to another bowl with your flour and granulated sugar. Add in your wet mixture with one egg yolk. Cover with a warm tablecloth or warm paper towels to rise. 

Roll out your dough, and spread butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and some of the blueberry compote onto the dough. Roll it into a log and, with a knife, cut off slices. In a baking dish, turn the piece upward. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. 

Cinnamon Bun topping

Fry 4-5 strips of bacon until crispy and blot out any excess oil with a paper towel. Chop up the bacon.

In a small bowl with an electric hand mixer, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 3-4 tablespoons of milk or water until smooth. 

Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the hot cinnamon rolls and top with the chopped bacon. 


Note: If you don’t want to make the cinnamon roll, use the shortcut method a can of frozen Pillsbury Cinnamon Bun.
