Why You'll Love This Recipe

These soft, pillowy and fluffy sweet rolls are filled with a lightly sweetened grape jam! I top these with a cream cheese icing that compliments the slightly sweet filling in just the right way. If you're looking for a less sweet version of cinnamon rolls, then this recipe for Concord Grape Sweet Rolls will be perfect for you!

I even surprised Delaney with how good these are! We both are big fans of grape, so we have grape jam in the fridge a lot. I'm so glad I went with my gut and tried it in these amazing Concord Grape Sweet Rolls.

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

If you like cinnamon rolls, give these Concord Grape Sweet Rolls a try, as they are an amazing take on a classic recipe.


  • Dough
  • 1/4 cup warm water

  • 2 teaspoons organic instant yeast

  • 57 grams (1/4 cup) plus 1/2 teaspoon organic cane sugar

  • 1/4 cup (57 grams) organic salted butter

  • 3/4 cup organic milk

  • 446 grams (3 1/2 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 large organic egg

  • Filling
  • 1/4 cup (57 grams) organic salted butter, softened

  • 6 ounces organic concord grape jam

  • 57 grams (1/4 cup) organic cane sugar

  • Icing
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) organic cream cheese

  • 142 grams (1 cup) organic powdered sugar, sifted

  • 2 tablespoons organic milk


  • To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the hot water, yeast, and 1/2 teaspoon cane sugar. Stir to combine and let sit for 5 minutes until bubbly.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and milk. Stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the flour, 1/4 cup cane sugar, and sea salt to the mixing bowl in that order. Add the egg and the milk mixture and knead on low for 3 to 5 minutes, until a smooth dough forms. Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 to 3 hours, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a baking dish, either a 9-inch circle dish or an 11-by-7-inch dish.
  • To fill the rolls: On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a rectangle that is about 12-by-16 inches. Using a spatula, spread the butter all over the rolled-out dough. Next, spread the grape jam on top of the butter. Sprinkle the cane sugar on top of the jam. Starting at the longer side, fold the dough over and start to roll the dough until it is completely rolled into a log. Trim off the edges and cut the dough log into eight rolls.
  • Place the rolls in the prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • To make the glaze: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk and mix until you have a smooth glaze. Pour the glaze over the top of the warm sweet rolls.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.


  • High Altitude – Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
