The Stickier, The Better!
January 31, 2014
I love brunch. Those special weekend breakfasts that prompt my kids to declare I'm the best mom ever. I enjoy taking a lazy Saturday morning and filling it with something special to eat for my family. When I discovered the entire brunch section on the website, I was thrilled. So many delicious looking options to try out for my family.
These sticky buns stood out for me. I noticed that this recipe uses actual caramel instead of a mixture of brown sugar and butter. Imagine how good that tastes? It really had my tastes bud begging me to try this recipe.
If you are every looking for a delicious caramel sauce, it is much easier than you think.
Melt some caramels and milk in the microwave and in no time you will have this:
I did learn that it is important to stick with an 8 inch round pan versus a 9 inch. I have both but opted for the 9 inch because I liked it more. Don't do that. Stick with 8 inches. (More on that later.)
This recipe requires a bit of rolling and cutting, but it really doesn't take long at all. After pinching the seams and adding my filling, I simply rolled each long rectangle up the short way. Then I cut it in half, then cut those in half again.
They baked up beautifully! Do be sure to flip the pan over immediately after it comes out of the oven so you don't lose any of the caramel. Because my biscuits didn't fully cover all areas of the pan due to the larger size, some of my caramel baked too long. I also waited about 30 seconds to flip it so I could get a few pictures.
Everything tastes absolutely fabulous. I did lose out on some of my caramel and nuts on the bottom of the pan. Learn from my mistake so you can enjoy all the gooey deliciousness this recipe offers.
I served these buns with some delicious scrambled eggs, and I was given two enthusiastic thumbs up from my 7-year-old. I can't blame him. I just wish I had made two pans so we had extras!
