  • Bowl
  • Baking Dish
  • Measuring cups and spoons


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Blueberry Filling


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs milk or water - more or less depending on thickness


  • Four to twelve hours before starting the dough, feed your starter so it is nice and active (bubbly).
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, honey, melted butter, water, and sourdough starter. It will be pretty firm. Cover and allow to ferment for 12-24 hours for the most benefit from the sourdough.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a saucepan, add butter and blueberries over medium heat and cook the blueberries down.
  • Once cooked down a bit, sprinkle with corn starch and stir. 
  • Turn off heat and allow to cool for a bit. Stir in brown sugar and set aside.
  • Sprinkle the dough with salt, baking soda, and baking powder and knead together until well combined.

  • Knead dough together to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated well. 
  • Flour a clean surface and roll out the dough until its about 1/4-1/2 inch thick rectangle.

  • Spread the blueberry filling over the dough, leaving about 1/4 inch of space from the ends.

  • Starting from one side, roll up the dough as tightly as you can. Pinch the ends of the dough to the roll. Slice using knife, bench scraper, or even unflavored dental floss.

  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the rolls start to turn golden. Allow rolls to cool.

Make The Frosting

  • In a medium bowl, mix together milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Allow the blueberry rolls to cool for a bit, then drizzle icing. Serve.


  • To make even-sized rolls, cut the log in half, then those rolls in half, and then in half again.
  • If you are new to sourdough, make sure to check out my quick and easy sourdough starter recipe. Sourdough baking doesn't have to be difficult, and this recipe is one that is pretty darn simple.
  • Add a 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon to make these blueberry cinnamon rolls.
