Preparing fresh baked goods can be challenging and so intimidating that you do not even want to try it. These strawberry buns with lemon cream cheese frosting are not only simpler than you think, but also MUCH YUMMIER as a brand bought in the store! With the help of Fleischmanns® RapidRise® yeast, this delicious cinnamon roll comes together quickly and nothing tastes better than baking from scratch at home.

I'm always looking forward to sharing my recipes with friends and family, but my bottom-baked recipes are the ones I'm most proud of. I know I can trust Fleischmanns® Yeast with its long history of quality products to make all my baking adventures a success. These strawberry buns are perfect for a Sunday brunch with friends and family or for a special Christmas holiday. As an added bonus, the dough can be prepared prematurely to simplify the preparation.

What you need to make homemade strawberry buns

The kitchen utensils you need for these strawberry cinnamon buns are:

  • A blender with hook or paddle attachment
  • A 9 × 13-inch casserole dish: Alternatively, you can use two 8-inch round pans and insert 6 rolls each.
  • Measuring cup and spoon: When baking it is very important that all ingredients are measured correctly. You do not only have to look for these strawberry rolls, you also have to measure everything!
  • A small bowl: This is to mix the lemon cream cheese icing on the homemade rolls with.
  • A rolling pin
  • A sharp knife: This is for cutting the cinnamon buns. Another good trick is to use plain, non-flavored floss to get clean and crispy cuts for the homemade strawberry cinnamon buns.
  • A thermometer (optional, but very helpful): It is very important to bring the water temperature to the right temperature for the yeast to react properly. More information can be found in the following tips and tricks!

The ingredients you need to make homemade strawberry buns are:

  • Pad clips: Flour, sugar, powdered sugar, an egg that you all know normal guys.
  • Fleischmann® RapidRise® yeastI love to use this yeast as the ascent time is fast and it is perfect for both novice and experienced yeast users. Baking at home with yeast may seem daunting at first, but this product makes life so much easier. In addition, home-made stuff is so much better than shop-bought stuff, so it's worth taking the time for this recipe for strawberry cinnamon buns!
  • Strawberry jam: Store bought jam works well, or you can look at my homemade jam without pectin, which is ideal for these strawberry rolls!
  • Fresh strawberries: I recommend not using frozen strawberries for these strawberry cinnamon rolls. Frozen strawberries hold more water and can cause the filling to become watery.
  • lemon juice: Fresh or in bottles work well.
  • cream cheese
  • butter

Prepare strawberry buns

These strawberry buns can be quickly assembled into a delicious breakfast or brunch for friends or family. For this recipe, you should follow the instructions and tips on the Fleischmann® RapidRise® Yeast Pack. Of course I'll go into all the details below!

Prepare the strawberry cinnamon roll dough

  • Mix 2 cups of flour, sugar, Fleischmann® RapidRise® yeast and salt in a large bowl and stir.
  • Put water and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Set the microwave to HIGH in 15 second increments until it feels very warm but not hot (120 to 130 ° F. Butter does not melt completely). With my water, it took 1 1/2 minutes for the water to reach 120 ° F. * See tips below to get your water right!
  • Add the warm water / butter to the flour mixture with egg. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed of the electric blender. Add 1 cup of flour; and continue to beat for 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in just enough flour to make the dough a ball. For me that was 4 1/2 cups, but maybe you need more or less!
  • Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. The dough gushes back with gentle pressure after about 7 minutes. Cover with a towel. Let rest for 10 minutes. While the dough is resting, prepare your strawberry filling.
  • Prepare a picture collage that shows step by step how the dough is made.

    Prepare strawberry filling

  • For the strawberry rolls you can use homemade jam or store bought strawberry jam. Both will work well. Measure your jam and set it aside.
  • Slice the strawberries and add some sugar to the bowl and stir. The sugar is not needed, but the rolls are even sweeter.
  • Set aside until the dough has risen.
  • Prepare the picture that shows how to make strawberry filling.

    Roll strawberry rolls and slice

  • Once the dough has risen, roll it into a 15 x 10 inch rectangle with a rolling pin.
  • Spread strawberry jam and fresh strawberries on the rolled dough, leaving 1 inch at the edges.
  • Start at the long end of the rectangle, roll it tight and pinch it. Part of the strawberry filling escapes, do not panic.
  • Cut into 12 equal pieces with a knife or floss. Place them face down in a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Cover with a towel. Leave in a warm place until the size has doubled, about 30 minutes – 1 hour.
  • Baking the homemade strawberry buns

  • Once the size of the strawberry rolls has doubled, bake them golden brown. While baking strawberry cinnamon buns, make the lemon cream cheese glaze.
  • After the rolls have finished cooking, let rest for 20 minutes and top with cream cheese icing.
  • Enjoy!

    How to Make Lemon Cream Cheese Icing

    This lemon cream cheese frosting is one of the simplest (and tastiest) frosting recipes you'll ever make. Actually, all you have to do for strawberry roll icing is to measure your ingredients, put them in a bowl and stir to combine. SO. DANG. SIMPLE! If you feel like it, you can use a hand mixer, but I really do not think it's necessary. I only use a whisk or a fork to really stir the cream cheese glaze to make sure no cream cheese or butter pieces remain. For this recipe I went with a splash of icing as shown. If you want to coat the entire roll, you'll need to double the lemon cream cheese glaze. You can also add more or less lemon juice than the recipe dictates if you're a total lemon head! Another way to improve the lemon flavor is to give the frosting a touch of lemon zest. This is not required, but gives a lot of flavor.Prepare image showing cream cheese icing made in a glass bowl.

    Tips and tricks for homemade cinnamon rolls

    Not too hot!

    If you bake with yeast, you should always pay attention to the correct water temperature. If the water is too hot for you, kill the yeast and your strawberry roll will not rise. To avoid this heartbreaking situation, make sure your water is between 120-130 degrees F. I like to use a thermometer to get it right, so I can make sure my water is at the right temperature. If you do not have a thermometer, do not be afraid that you can still rock this recipe.

    When touching the water, it should be warm and not hot. If you have to touch the water and pull your hand away, you need to let it cool or you're a yeast destroyer. The best comparison to the water temperature you want to achieve for maximum yeast efficiency is a whirlpool. Warm, but not burning, you know?

    Not too old!

    Another important point when baking with yeast is that the Fleischmann® RapidRise® yeast has not expired. Did you know that yeast is a living organism and that's what makes this strawberry bun dough ?! Pretty cool, if you think about it! To make sure that this cool organism can do its job effectively, you should make sure that the yeast is not over-aged or expired.

    Storage of leftover homemade strawberry rolls

    I love that I can make these strawberry buns on a Sunday and many days afterwards. For best results, remove the strawberry cinnamon buns from the baking dish and store in an airtight container. Stored in the fridge they stay fresh for up to 4 days. When done, you can take them out of the refrigerator cold or put them in the microwave for 15-30 seconds until they are warm. Be careful not to overheat the strawberry buns, as they may become choppy otherwise.

    I hope you and your friends and family love these homemade strawberry buns! My favorite time to prepare these sandwiches is a Sunday brunch with the family or a holiday with friends. I am also an avid breakfast gal for dinner and these buns often appear.

    Happy meal!
