It’s going to be 75 degrees today! After hitting “publish” on this blog post, I’m closing up the laptop, putting on some shorts, and spending the rest of the day outside with my best friend, vitamin D.
My mom used to make these cinnamon sugar sticky buns on special occasions. They were our favorite growing up! It was a smart way to get my brother and me out of bed in the morning. Waking up to the smell of baked cinnamon buns is nostalgic! She made these buns on Christmas morning, Easter, and the first day of school.
What is the difference between a cinnamon roll and a sticky bun?
In my opinion, I prefer these buns over cinnamon rolls. They are much easier to make, but they are like eating the centers of cinnamon rolls without all the uncoated breading. They are so good that they don’t even need icing! You could add it, but I’m telling you, you don’t need it! And that says a lot since I’m the type of person that will eat icing out of the tub.
To make the recipe even easier, my mom let the rolls defrost on the counter overnight. That way, she could coat the rolls, pop them in the oven, and they were ready to go! I can’t wait to make these for my kids one day! I made them for Kyle for the first time a month ago, and he said it was the best thing he’s ever had. You’ll have a hard time returning to regular cinnamon rolls after this treat!
They’re perfect when you have guests staying (imagine waking them up to this smell 😋) and an excellent dish for a morning work potluck or friend’s brunch.
