Fast and Easy Sticky Buns

Header 2 againSomething about the holiday season makes me want to make special treats like these and enjoy them with family!  I have certain recipes that never seem to see the light of day until the holidays roll around.  Every year I think “I should make these more often” and then I never seem to get it done.  I just might be a procrastinator!

This recipe originally came from the mother of one of my coworkers.  She made it several times and send it in for us for special events, etc.  It was always a hit with everyone.  Try it and I think you’ll agree that it’s fast, easy and delicious.  The only thing that takes time and patience is waiting for the bread dough to rise.

IngredientsIngredients:

  • 2 loaves of frozen bread dough
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 package large size vanilla cook and serve pudding (don’t get the instant)
  • Cinnamon

Instructions:

  • Melt the butter in a medium size pan and add the sugar, milk and pudding
  • Cook over medium heat until the ingredients bubble
  • Set aside
  • Butter a deep pan (I purchased a Hefty EZ Foil disposable pan that was 10 x 10 square by 3 1/2 inches deep)
  • Roll out the bread dough to approximately 1/2 inch thick and sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Roll the dough up
  • Cut into approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • Place the pieces into the buttered pan
  • Poor the heated sugar, milk, butter and pudding mixture over the dough
  • Allow to rise for 2 hours
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes

If the buns seem a little doughy after the baking time, cover them with foil and bake them a little longer.

Nuts, such as pecans or walnuts can be added to this recipe as well, according to taste.

When I shop for frozen bread dough, I always seem to find bags with 3 loaves instead of 2.  This actually works out fine for me because I use that 3rd loaf to bake a fresh loaf of bread.  Who can resist warm sweet delicious sticky buns or warm bread fresh from the oven with melted butter.  Either one is comfort food at it’s best!
