Why You’ll Love These Raspberry Rolls

There are many reasons to love raspberry rolls! Here’s a breakdown of their delightful qualities:

  • Flavorful Combination: They offer a delightful contrast of textures and tastes. The soft, buttery dough melts in your mouth, while the sweet and tart raspberry filling provides a burst of fruity flavor with fresh raspberry pieces. The light dusting of powdered sugar adds a light sweetness.
  • Perfect Balance of Sweet and Tart: Unlike cinnamon rolls, which can be quite sweet, raspberry rolls offer a nice balance between the sweetness of the dough and frosting with the tartness of the raspberries. This makes them a more refreshing and versatile treat.
  • Easy to Love Texture: The buttery dough yields a light and flaky texture, similar to a croissant. This creates a delightful contrast with the juicy raspberry filling, making each bite interesting.
  • Versatile Treat: Raspberry rolls are perfect for any occasion. Enjoy them for a special breakfast or brunch, as an afternoon snack, or even a decadent dessert.
  • Relatively Easy to Make: While baking bread dough can seem intimidating, there are many easy raspberry roll recipes available. Plus, the end result is so impressive, it’s sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

I was also thinking what a great dessert they would make if you dripped some chocolate ganache across them. Yes, the possibilities for these little Raspberry Rolls are pretty much endless.

What Can I add to Raspberry Rolls

There are many things you can add to raspberry rolls to customize them to your taste. Here are a few ideas:

  • Filling Variations:
    • Spice it up: Add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom to the filling for a warm flavor twist.
    • Chocolate and Raspberry: Drizzle melted chocolate or Nutella over the filling before rolling up the dough. Alternatively, you can add chocolate chips to the filling.
    • Nutty Addition: For a nutty twist, add chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds to the filling.
    • Citrus Burst: For a brighter flavor, add a squeeze of lemon or orange zest to the filling.
  • Frosting/Glaze Variations:
    • Cream Cheese Frosting: Make a classic cream cheese frosting to spread over the rolls after baking. You can also add some of the leftover raspberries to the frosting for a swirl.
    • Vanilla Glaze: Opt for a simple vanilla glaze for a lighter topping.
    • Lemon Icing: For a tart and refreshing topping, make a lemon icing.
  • Streusel Topping: For a crumbly topping, make a streusel by combining flour, sugar, and butter.

How to Store Raspberry Rolls

  • Short-term storage (1-2 days):
    • Frosted or unfrosted: Tightly wrap or place them in an airtight container at room temperature. This is best for rolls you plan to enjoy within a day or two.
  • Long-term storage (up to 5 days):
    • Frosted rolls: These are best stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The cold helps the frosting set and prevents it from spoiling.
    • Unfrosted rolls: You can store unfrosted rolls in the refrigerator or freezer for longer stretches. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or place them in a freezer-safe container.


  • Frosted rolls stored in the refrigerator can be enjoyed at room temperature or gently reheated in the microwave for a few seconds to soften.
  • Unfrosted rolls can be thawed in the refrigerator overnight and then frosted and baked according to your recipe’s instructions.

General Tips:

  • Avoid storing frosted rolls for extended periods at room temperature, as the frosting can spoil.
  • Freshly baked rolls always taste best, but proper storage will help you enjoy them for a few extra days.
