Sticky Buns -- Sweet Melissa Sundays


These are, hands down, the best sticky buns I've ever made, probably the best I've ever tasted! They were picked for us to try with Sweet Melissa Sundays by Jen of Not Microwave Safe a few Sundays ago, and while I did bake along with the group I just didn't get around to posting until now.


You can find the recipe for Melissa Murphy's amazing sticky buns here at Jen's site. The original recipe was for Sticky Buns with Toasted Almonds, and the toasted almonds are just sprinkled on top, so if you are not an almond fan you are safe to make these. I happen to love almonds, so made an almond bun for myself...


and left the rest plain for picky husband -- I figured I could sprinkle the toasted almonds on as desired. These didn't really need almonds, as they are amazing all by themselves with the pillowy soft dough and best sticky sauce ever, but I liked the little extra crunch the almonds added. Everyone in my family loved these, even picky husband! I think the sticky sauce is the key to these amazing buns, it is made with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup, absolutely delicoius.

Here are some process photos...






Check out this page for the recipe if you don't have the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. I've made quite a few recipes from this book while baking along with Sweet Melissa Sundays and while most of them turned out perfectly, I think this is my favorite, so delicious, and a recipe that will be made again and again for sure :)
