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.

Lemon Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Bake

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.

I always head to Walmart for all my Easter brunch needs, including the Pillsbury Grands!™ Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing. For this recipe, you’ll need two cans.

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

  19. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?
