Sticky Buns

It is no secret that the ladies of HAP love pinterest.  It is such an amazing place to find inspiration, recipes and fashion.  The moment I saw these sticky buns posted on the site, I knew I had to make them.  I am not 100% sure where this recipe origniated, however it appears to be from the blog All Things Delicious.  And let me tell you, these truly are delicious.

Sticky Buns

1 tube Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup syrup, any brand is fine
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional
1/4 cup chopped almonds, optional

Start by greasing a fluted pan.  In a bowl, combine the melted butter and syrup and set aside.  In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts if you plan on using them.  (I didn’t use the nuts because my husband and daughter usually pick them out, but I do think they would make this recipe even more amazing.)  Pour about 1/2 the syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan followed by a sprinkle of about 1/2 the brown sugar mixture.

Dip each biscuit in the remaining syrup mixture and place in the bottom of the pan, slightly overlapping to form a ring.

Top with the remaining syrup and sugar mixtures.  Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for a minute or so and then invert onto a plate.  Serve warm.

A Bun in the Oven

My mom used to always make monkey bread for special occasions and since I can’t resist a good pun, it seemed fitting to pull out this caramel sticky bun recipe to announce my own little “bun in the oven”! The hubs and I are expecting our first baby in August and we couldn’t be more excited.

But back to the monkey bread…if you have any affection for sticky rolls, you must try this. With just a little pre-planning (it needs to sit overnight) it’s a delicious and impressive pull-apart breakfast “bun” that only takes minutes of your time to prep.

Monkey Bread
1 pkg frozen white dinner rolls (2 dozen)
1 pkg non-instant butterscotch pudding mix
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/2 C butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Lightly butter a bundt pan. Sprinkle pecans in the bottom of the bundt pan. Sprinkle pudding mix on top. Place frozen dinner rolls evenly into the pan. In a large glass measuring cup or small bowl, microwave butter and brown sugar until melted. Whisk in cinnamon and vanilla until mixture is smooth, then pour over dinner rolls.

Wrap pan with plastic wrap and set on the counter overnight to allow rolls to rise. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
