What to bake this weekend: Raspberry and lemon swirl rolls
13th May 2021
These raspberry and lemon swirl rolls were a finalist recipe at the innocent Ireland dairy-free cook off. Here’s how to make them.
An airy, fruit-filled treat, these raspberry and lemon swirl rolls are perfectly paired with a cup of coffee or tea.
“I set up my food page on Instagram in the first lockdown to share my love for all things food,” Niamh said.
“I chose to make this recipe to reinvent the classic cinnamon roll, combining two of my all time favourite flavours: raspberry and lemon.”
Her swirl rolls are completely dairy-free and topped off with a vanilla glaze – a light and flavourful pastry to try out this weekend or a great batch bake for your next picnic.
Here’s how to make them.
