These sticky buns take awhile to make but are totally worth it! You could make the dough the night before, and it'll be much faster the following day.


It's a big hit in our household and there is never any left overs.

These are great because they are very soft and gooey. Best eaten when still warm!

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Coat an 8" round baking pan with nonstick spray. In a small saucepan over low heat, stir 4 tablespoons of the brown sugar, the corn syrup and water until the brown sugar dissolves and the mixture is warm.

I used to have a recipe years ago for making Sticky Buns using Rich's Roll Dough. The package has little balls of dough in it. You prepare it the night before, and put it in a cold oven until morning and then you bake it. It is made in a bundt pan. They come out really good. Unfortunately, I lost the recipe. Does anyone have a recipe like this? Thanks.

You can find a recipe for sticky buns on thriftyfun and almost every recipe site.
Find one you like then substitute Pillsbury's soft breadsticks. Cut them into chunks and put in a bundt pan.


Or separate the sticks but don't unroll them and put them in a cake pan. Works either way and is very good.

I would go to Rich's website.
I bet they'll be able to get your their recipe.
Sounds yummy!
If it's not too complicated a recipe, would you mind posting it if you do find it?

I'd love to try it!

18 frozen rolls
2 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped nuts -- pecans are the best
1 small box cook and serve vanilla pudding, not instant
1/3 - 1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup raisins, more or less, optional

Place frozen rolls in a well greased Bundt pan.

Combine brown sugar, pudding, cinnamon, raisins, and nuts. Sprinkle over rolls. Pour butter on top.

Cover with a damp cloth and leave overnight or at least 4 hours or until doubled.

Bake 20-30 minutes at 350°F. Check at 20 minutes. If over browning, cover top with foil.


Remove from oven and turn rolls over onto plate. Serve warm.

Personal Note
Substitute part of brown sugar with honey.
Soak raisins in water to soften, blot off before combining with sugar/cinnamon mix.
Original recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter but that seemed too much.
Reheat in microwave for about 10-15 seconds.

I also came across a recipe that suggested rolling the rolls in butter and then the sugar mixture and place in the pan. Pour any leftover sugar mixture and butter on top. That sounds like it may work better but I haven't had a chance to try that.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Nothing beats sticky buns hot out of the oven!
You could probably use your dough with this recipe's sauce.

Prep Time: 2 Hours 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Ready In: 3 Hours
Yields: 15 servings
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans, divided
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

In a small bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar and yeast in warm water. Let

stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Warm the milk in a small saucepan

until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup
butter and salt; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk mixture, eggs and 1
1/2 cup
flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a
beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together,
it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and
about 8 minutes.
Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat
oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled
volume, about 1 hour.
While dough is rising, melt 3/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over
heat. Stir in 3/4 cup brown sugar, whisking until smooth. Pour into
9x13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle bottom of pan with 1/2 cup pecans; set
Melt remaining butter; set aside. Combine remaining 3/4 cup brown
sugar, 1/2
cup pecans, and cinnamon; set aside.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, roll into an 18x14 inch
rectangle. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter, leaving 1/2 inch
uncovered; sprinkle with brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Starting at long

side, tightly roll up, pinching seam to seal. Brush with remaining 2
tablespoons butter. With serrated knife, cut into 15 pieces; place cut
down, in prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled
volume. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Let
cool in
pan for 3 minutes, then invert onto serving platter. Scrape remaining
filling from the pan onto the rolls.

My recipe is called Hungarian Ring, however, after mixing up the dough and when finished with the rising, grease a ring mold or an angel food tube pan. Prepare a bowl of melted butter, about l/2 cup. Mix together 3/4 C. sugar and 2 ts.cinnamon. Pinch off small balls of dough about the size of a walnut and dip in the melted butter then in the cinnamon-sugar mixture putting into tube pan in layers. let rise until light but not quite double in bulk. Bake about 375* for about 20 min or until nicely browned. turn upside down onto a large plate. I sometime double the butter/cinnamon/sugar as I like lots of sticky. Enjoy!

My grandmother would make a plate of stickies for me in the late 60s. They were not the soft sticky buns but a buttery, sweet somewhat hard, crunchier treat. I can not find that recipe anywhere, I would be most grateful for anyone's help.
