9 Out-Of-This-World Sticky Buns (Recipes)


By Cooking Panda

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:

1. Cardamom Lemon Sticky Buns

Looking for something bright, fragrant and tangy to balance out that steamy cup of coffee? We have exactly what you’re looking for right here.

2. Sweet, Sour and Savory Sticky Buns

With sausage, dried cherries and pecans rolled inside a gooey bun that gets topped with a brown sugar glaze, we just can’t say no to this perfect breakfast.

3. Easy Caramel Biscuit Sticky Buns

If you’re looking to take some shortcuts, grab a can of biscuit dough and watch these delights come together in no time. You’ll be amazed at how gourmet this cheater version tastes.

4. Overnight Sticky Bun French Toast

6. Pumpkin Orange Cinnamon Rolls with Chocolate Chips

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.

7. Monkey (Ginger) Bread

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.

8. Fig Sticky Buns with Caramel Glaze

A touch of brandy goes swimmingly with the figs, giving your standard sticky buns a deeper, slightly fruity complexity. Delicious!

9. Easy Vegan Sticky Buns

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.
