Three tried and true blueberry recipes to get you ready for the blueberry season or to deal with your frozen blueberry problem.
My problem, as you know from this post (Delectable Blueberry Muffins) is a freezer full of frozen blueberries.
Quite a delicious problem it turns out!
I have been on the lookout for more awesome blueberry recipes.
These recipes don't require any special skills, rare ingredients or specialized equipment. You don't even use a lot of bowls so clean up is a breeze. Check them out at www.moderngillie.com Click To Tweet
Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Bread
This recipe for Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Bread by Melanie Kathryn at Gather for Bread is excellent.
It is very moist due to the Greek yogurt and not too sweet. The glaze adds some sweetness with lemon tartness.
It is easy to make and cooks up beautifully. It also disappears quickly.
Blueberry Sweet Rolls with Lemon Glaze
The next of the blueberry recipes has been on my Pinterest Board “Delicious Baking” for sometime. I was waiting for the right time to try it. I decided there was no time like the present and had my Mum over for tea and Blueberry Sweet Rolls with Lemon Glaze from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Sally has many excellent recipes so I could have recommended this on her solid reputation alone but I had to make it in order to be sure.
These are a yeast roll with a single rise. I used a stand mixer with a dough hook to make the dough. Rolling the dough into a rectangle was easy and the filling is simple too. It is meant to be done with frozen blueberries and while the rolls are rising the berries thaw and release their juices making a sweet blueberry sauce.
Of course first, you have to drizzle with the lemon topping!
These are incredibly good! There will not be any leftovers for coffee tomorrow!
Easy Blueberry Cheesecake
I was looking for something in the cheesecake department. The tartness of the cheesecake filling seems to be a natural to combine with the blueberry. I eventually came up with my own. I used a graham cracker crust because that’s my favorite for cheesecake. These can be either bars or a cheesecake. The cheesecake batter is not your standard New York-style cheesecake where you add in a lot of melted butter. I love New York-style cheesecake but it is so rich! This batter is lighter. Keeping with the theme of adding in some lemon I made a blueberry “sauce” with lemon zest and added a tiny amount to the cheesecake batter. This came out beautifully and is dessert for Easter dinner.

Enjoy these recipes and don’t be afraid to freeze those blueberries for use later to have blueberry season anytime you feel like it.
