Two Ingredient Dough Blueberry Sweet Rolls
We discovered the wonder of two ingredient dough a few years ago. While a lot of people find the appeal in that it’s low fat, I really love the simplicity of two-ingredient dough. I usually always have self-rising flour and greek yogurt on hand, so I always am able to make this dough. The simplistic, slightly chewy base allows for a lot of versatility. I’ve used it to make bagels, flat bread, and pizza. A lot of recipes you find are for more savory options for the two ingredient dough, but I wanted a healthier take on sweet rolls. While I love a good cinnamon roll, they’re full of butter and sugar, and they are not exactly a perfect fit for a daily breakfast. These two ingredient dough blueberry sweet rolls, however, don’t use butter, use very little sugar, and the frosting is optional.
Trick to Two Ingredient Dough Sweet Rolls
While there are not many recipes where I insist that you use a stand mixer, this is one of them. The dough hook in the stand mixer really helps to bring the dough together. It’ll look too sticky at first, but after beating it for about 3-5 minutes, it should come together as a ball. If it doesn’t, add more flour in 1/4 cup increments.
I also find that if you are using a softer flour (like White Lily) you should just add that 1/4 cup to begin with. If you’re not sure what that means, hold a tablespoon of your great value flour and compare it to something like White Lily. When you rub it between your fingers, there is a noticeable difference in the texture. White Lily is finer, so it comes off feeling “softer.” This is why people love this flour for biscuits because of that beautiful texture. While softer flours still work well in two-ingredient dough, you will find yourself using a bit more flour to get that dough to fully come together.
Topping It Off
Now, if you are make these two ingredient dough blueberry sweet rolls for ease and not for them being diet friendly, I would recommend adding butter to the frosting. Currently, this is mostly cream cheese that has been slightly sweetened and thinned out. It doesn’t get all melty and gooey like a buttercream would. Adding even like two tablespoons gets you to a more traditional texture for the topping.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
