Spring is finally in the air and I’m looking forward to celebrating Easter with a big family get-together. The entire family comes over for brunch on Easter Sunday and I’ve been diligently working on my menu. This time around my family brunch includes the addition of a delicious Lemon Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Bake. It’s so easy to make because the recipe begins with Pillsbury Grands!™ Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing.

As you probably know by now, Pillsbury Grands!™ Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls are always a part of our big family celebrations. I always serve them on Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings. We also enjoy them at Easter. I’ve added a little spring twist to this family favorite and I know you’re going to love it.

Easter Traditions

As I plan my menu, I also think about my family’s Easter traditions. A few months before Easter, I get together with my daughter and daughter-in-law and we begin the search for the perfect Easter outfits for the kids – my treat. Since I have 5 grandsons, we’re on the hunt for outfits that are color coordinated. I’ll be taking tons of photos until the boys manage to escape when I look the other way.

After a lovely brunch, the kids are ready to get the hunt going. We always hide way too many eggs and I don’t think they’ve ever found them all. I usually find the ones that were overlooked while I’m working in my flower garden a few weeks after the big hunt.

Speaking of brunch, my Lemon Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Bake will be a big hit with the family on Easter. The brightness of the fresh blueberries and tangy lemon zest pair perfectly with the deliciousness of the cinnamon rolls.

Let’s make a delicious Lemon Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Bake.
