  • 2 1/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm Water
  • 1/2 cup Sugar (divided)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (divided)
  • Zest of one Lemon
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable or Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2-2 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Poppyseeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 drops Yellow Food Coloring (optional)
  • 12oz Blueberries (about 2 cups)
  • 3 Tbsp Water (divided)
  • 2/3 cup powdered Sugar

Mix the 2 1/4 tsp of yeast, 1/2 cup of warm water, and 1/4 cup of sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, and let it sit for about 10 minutes, until foamy.
Add a 1/4 cup of lemon juice, the zest of one lemon, 1/4 cup of Vegetable oil, 1 tsp Vanilla, 1-2 drops of yellow food coloring (optional), 1 Tbsp of Poppyseeds and 1/2 tsp salt. Roughly mix it together, then add the flour- anywhere between 2- 2 1/4 cups of flour, until no longer sticky.
Run the stand mixer on high for about 5 minutes, or knead for 10 minutes on a lightly floured countertop if you prefer to do it by hand. Cover the dough and let rise in a warm environment for about 30 minutes.
While the dough rises, prepare your blueberry filling. On medium heat, add 12oz blueberries, 1/4 cup Sugar, 2 Tbsp water, and 1/4 cup of Lemon Juice to a small pot. Stir continuously until thickened- it should be a little loose than the consistency of a jam- it will thicken as it cools. Take it off the stovetop and let it cool.
When your dough has doubled, Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Roll the dough into a 12x6 rectangle. Spread the Blueberry mixture onto it, leaving a small border around the edges. Roll it up by the long end, like you're making cinnamon rolls.
Now cut the entire roll in half length-wise, leaving an inch at the top. Turn both pieces out so that the blueberry layers are on the outside, then twist them around each other. Form your twisted sides into a circle or 'wreath' shape, gently tucking one end over the other.
Transfer to a greased baking sheet, cover, and let it rest for 15 minutes. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until a darker shade of yellow or light brown (depending on if you used the yellow food dye) on top.
While it bakes, mix up the glaze by whisking together 1 Tbsp of Lemon juice, 1 Tbsp of water, and 2/3 cup of Powdered Sugar until no clumps are left. Pour over the wreath right after it comes out of the oven. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve in wedges or simply pull it apart. Enjoy!
