Sticky Buns

These Sticky Buns are absolutely out of this world. They are super easy to make and positively yummy. Even though they're so easy, we usually only make them for special occasions like Easter or Christmas -- but these would be a great addition to a breakfast buffet or for overnight guests (they'll think you were up with the birds to make this special treat!).

If you're planning on making breakfast for your mom this Mother's Day, why not give them a try?

You'll Need
  • 2 loaves frozen white bread dough
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 large pack vanilla pudding (NOT INSTANT)
  • 2 Tbs. milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans/walnuts/raisins (optional)
Step by Step
  1. Let bread dough thaw and begin to rise in refrigerator. (I usually take it out of the freezer in the afternoon on the day before I want to serve the sticky buns).
  2. Grease 13 x 9 pan
  3. Sprinkle bottom of the pan with nuts and/or raisins
  4. Pull bread dough into walnut-sized pieces and arrange in single layer in pan.
  5. Melt butter, add pudding mix, brown sugar and milk, stirring over low heat until well mixed
  6. Pour mixture evenly over bread dough
  7. Let rise overnight on countertop or in refrigerator (I typically let it rise in the oven and set the delayed start/timer for a half hour before I expect we'll get up).
  8. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  9. Let stand for 5 minutes in pan, invert onto a serving platter to serve.
  10. ENJOY!!
If you're a coffee drinker, pre-program your coffee maker before you go to bed the night before and you'll awake to the smell of coffee and fresh-baked sticky buns.....oh what a heavenly morning!
