  • 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ Tbsp salt

For the Filling:

  • ¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter
  • ⅛ cup ground cinnamon
  • 4 oz fresh blueberries
  • ⅓ cup rainbow sprinkles

For the Blueberry Icing:

  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a saucepan, heat the milk, vegetable oil, and ½ cup of sugar until hot but not boiling. Allow cooling to lukewarm.
    • Sprinkle yeast over the milk mixture and let it sit for 1 minute to activate.
    • Stir in 4 cups of flour until just combined, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled in size.
  2. Add Dry Ingredients:
    • Mix in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and the remaining ½ cup of flour.
  3. Roll the Dough:
    • On a floured surface, roll the dough into a 30×10 inch rectangle.
    • Melt butter and brush it over the dough. Evenly sprinkle with the remaining ¾ cup sugar, cinnamon, blueberries, and rainbow sprinkles.
    • Roll up the dough tightly from the long end and cut into 1-inch thick slices.
  4. Baking:
    • Place the slices in buttered baking pans, leaving space for them to expand. Let them rise for an additional 20 minutes.
    • Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 16-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Prepare the Icing:
    • Mash ¼ cup of blueberries and mix with powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
