Did you know that sticky buns have been around since ancient times? According to food historians, the gooey, sweet and warm pastries date all the way back to ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. Who knew?
The sweet, sticky treats came to the U.S. via German immigrants (aka the Pennsylvania Dutch) who called them "Schnecken," and honestly we owe those people so much.
Pay tribute to the centuries of rich history that this dessert has and whip up a nice, moist and flavorful batch of sticky buns. Here are some of our favorite recipes:
The best part of this one is that you get to prep it the night before and then just finish it really quickly in the morning. French toast lovers looking for a new spin on their favorite breakfast will go nuts for this syrupy pecan version.
As much as we love the classic cinnamon/nut variety of sticky buns, we still think you should mix it up by adding a bit of chocolate and pumpkin for added subtle complexity that's not overpowering but just noticeable enough and a zip of orange to balance the whole thing out perfectly.
Just a little sweet and just a little spicy, the flavors in this easy monkey bread are stupendously perfect, especially when you top the whole thing off with that scrumptious brown sugar caramel. Eat it warm with salted butter and coffee and you'll be in heaven.
Because sometimes you just need a classic sticky bun recipe with no bells or whistles. This easy version is the one that you need, whether you want to keep it vegan or you'd prefer to swap out the almond milk and vegan butter for the dairy counterparts. Either way, we're sure we won't catch anyone complaining about these gooey, fluffy treats.
