Delicious Cinnamon Sticky Buns

Okay, so just looking through these pictures makes me want to bake these cinnamon sticky buns again.. it would even be worth the 3 hour prep/bake time! Seriously – so good. I got the original recipe from my favourite site (AllRecipes) and then tweaked it slightly to suit what I had on hand.

1. In a large bowl, dissolve 1 tsp sugar in warm water, then sprinkle yeast evenly over the water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until all of the yeast has popped to the top. In a small saucepan, scald the milk (warm until you can see bubbles on the bottom of the pot. NOTE: Do NOT boil the milk.) Mix in sugar, butter, and salt. Stir until butter has melted, and let cool until lukewarm.

2. Add milk mixture to yeast mixture. Add eggs and 1 1/2 cups of flour. Stir until combined (I find a wooden spoon works best). Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough is no longer sticky, turn it onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 8 minutes until it bounces back when you poke it with your finger.

3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a tea towel and let rise in the oven (turned off with the light on) for about 1 hour, until doubled in size.

4. While dough is rising, prepare the sticky sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir until combined. Pour into greased 9×13 inch pan. Sprinkle walnuts over sticky sauce and set aside.

5. For the filling, melt butter and set aside. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts. Set aside.

6. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a large rectangle. Brush with melted butter, leaving 1/2 inch at the long edge of the dough. Sprinkle with brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up the dough tightly, making sure that you finish with the sugarless edge. When complete, pinch the edge together and brush with remaining melted butter.

7. Using serrated knife, cut roll into 15 pieces. Place cut side down in prepared pan. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour until doubled in size.

8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake cinnamon buns in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto platter. Scrape any remaining filling from the pan onto the buns. Bon appetit!
