This is one of those recipes that smells and tastes like my childhood. Is that weird? It sounds kind of weird. But the truth is, when I get a whiff of the ooey gooey sweet deliciousness that is these sticky buns, I am immediately taken back to being a little girl.
Let me tell you about these buns that I so fondly remember form my childhood. These sticky buns are just that. Stiiiicky-icky! So sticky and sweet and made with a whole stick of butter and lots of sweet brown sugar.
Anything made with a whole stick of butter has got to be good, right? Right. Totally a given.
They're kind of caramel-y, but with a big old cinnamon kick. Warm, comforting and perfect alongside a cup of coffee or milk if you're a little one!
The best part about these Sticky Buns is that they are so darn easy to make. Like really easy.
All you have to do is arrange frozen rolls are over some nuts and raisins and then pour the sticky sauce right on over them. Then you cover them and put them in the fridge overnight and that's it! Walk away and do your thing until the next morning.
When morning rolls around, bake and eat. Done and done. How easy is that?!
They come out of the oven looking all puffy and golden and cinnamon-y. And the smell of these babies! Good Lord, it's intoxicating. They don't look very sticky at this point. Quite deceiving!
But when you flip that baking dish over onto your serving platter...oh, yeah, that's when the magic happens. All of that beautiful brown sugar cinnamon butter sauce is revealed.
I can't resist grabbing one just as soon as they come out of the oven, but all of that delish sauce gets stickier and stickier as they sit. Perfectly sticky! So they're ideal for a party because they can sit without getting all yucky. They get better!
These delicious, ooey, gooey, buttery, cinnamon-y sticky buns would an amazing addition to any breakfast or brunch spread. Everyone will love the pretty presentation and will be asking you for the recipe, I guarantee it!
If you try my Aunt Betty Lou's recipe, let me know what you think! I'm sure you'll love them as much as I do!
