So Sticky



One morning this week, I came home desperate for a sticky bun.
A really good sticky bun.
I’ve made sticky buns before, but never found a recipe that was really worth repeating; so I quickly reviewed the recipes on epicurious and came up with this one to try.
It had the necessary elements: guilt-provoking amounts of butter, yeast-leavened dough, pecan topping, and plenty of sticky components. I did make a few modifications–I added a pinch (or more) of cinnamon to the dough and a few cranks of nutmeg shavings into the sugary-buttery syrup. I also cut the honey in half, replacing it with maple syrup.
It wasn’t the fastest process, but it may have taken me longer in my sleep-deprived state.
Overall, I was really happy with this recipe and would definitely make them again, perhaps trying to find some shortcuts. Ashley preferred hers with the addition of cream-cheese frosting.
I wish I could share the buns themselves!

  8. Love Smitten Kitchen – these look great! I also had a craving for something similar this week – mine was cinnamon rolls with a side yearning of coffee cake. This post might just have completed the want now trifecta.
