Sticky buns

Sticky buns are old fashioned dessert, only in few places sells them here. And there will be a long queue to buy during summer. The dough has to rest for overnight and the buns must be consumed in single day..I just wanted to give a try to find whats the hype behind it. It was over as soon as i made it. I didnt take stepwise pictures (i was too lazy that day) and the method is as same as you do the cinnamon rolls. You can check my previous post here. These sticky buns are much sticky on bottom. So you should serve it upside down, so the filling plays the sticky role.

As per wikipedia – Sticky buns also have a Germanic origin and were originally known as “Schnecken“. The Pennsylvania Dutch introduced Schnecken in the United States. Wherever 18th-century German settlers (such as the Pennsylvania Dutch) went, sticky buns have remained long after many other cultural traits have disappeared
