My baking experiment #148 – apricot cantaloupe rolls

Happy Saturday! It’s the middle of summer and we finally hit 100 degrees yesterday. Today’s gonna be another hot one. I woke up early this morning and had a hankering for some fresh-baked rolls. So i proceeded to make some!

Since i wanted them for breakfast, i had no time to work with a yeast dough which requires time to proof. So i went with a no-yeast dough. And i wanted just a small batch of rolls for my husband and i, so this recipe is perfect:


    • 3/4 cup flour
    • 1 Tbsp sugar
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp baking soda
    • pinch salt
    • 5 Tbsp milk
    • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
    • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
    • 4 Tbspย apricot preserves
    • 4 Tbsp cantaloupe puree


  1. Preheat oven to 375 and spray 4 cups in muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl.
  3. In measuring cup, combine milk, vinegar and melted butter.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until soft dough forms.
  5. Heavily flour work surface and pat dough out into 6″ long rectangle.
  6. Spread apricot jam & cantaloupe puree on top of dough.
  7. Carefully roll dough up starting with long side.
  8. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces, drop into greased muffin cups and bake 10-15 minutes.
  9. Glaze apricotย rolls if desiredย and enjoy warm.

These rolls are so soft & fluffy when they just come out of the oven! They are lightly flavored with the apricot & cantaloupe, perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee. If you wanted them a little sweeter definitely go with a simple glaze on top.

What a great start to a beautiful Saturday morning. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and happy baking! ๐Ÿ™‚
