I've made Deeba's roasted balsamic strawberries many times this year. G loves it a lot. He has it on toast or on its own. Strawberries were comparatively cheaper than the past years here in Bangalore. This recipe - Sweet Orange, Roasted Strawberry & Chocolate Buttermilk Rolls has been on my mind ever since I saw it on Deeba's blog . As the strawberry season draws to a close I decided that it was time I made these rolls.
They turned out soft gooey, buttery, chocolately...everything that makes your heart sing. I added milk as per the Ree Drummond's (aka The Pioneer Woman) original recipe from her book The Pioneer Woman Cooks – Food From My Frontier.
I'm not a big fan of marmalade. My sister suggested I substitute it with honey. It worked. The rolling part was most difficult for me. I used parchment paper to roll the dough. It helped but the filling did ooze out. But I'm not complaining. The rolls tasted just divine.

Since I do not have a traditional oven and use the convection mode of my microwave oven these rolls were not as brown as in the pictures of the original recipe. They were cooked but I guess browning requires a bit of higher temperature in the beginning.
Do give these rolls a try. I'll definitely be making them again.
