While it’s fine to surrender to grocery-aisle temptation now and then, it’s so much more satisfying (not to mention a lot more affordable) to make the treats you crave at home. Sticky buns are surefire crowd-pleasers that don’t require a lot of mad baking skills to pull off. In fact, you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already. So what’re you waiting for? You could be tearing into ooey-gooey caramel-glazed goodness in a matter of hours.

Sticky Buns

  1. In a bowl, combine the buttermilk, sugar, yeast and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer using the dough hook or in a bowl using a wooden spoon, combine the flour, eggs and buttermilk mixture until the dough begins to form.
  3. Add the softened butter. In the stand mixer or by hand, knead the dough for 5 minutes. It will be soft and slightly sticky. Place in a clean, lightly oiled bowl and cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm, humid place for 1 hour.


  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients with a whisk until smooth. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) glass baking dish. Set aside.


  1. In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. On a generously floured surface, roll out the dough into a 20 x 14-inch (50 x 35 cm) rectangle. Brush with the melted butter and cover with the brown sugar mixture. Roll the dough into a log 20 inches (50 cm) long. Cut into 12 slices.
  3. Place the dough slices onto the caramel. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm, humid place for 1 hour, or refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight (see note).
  4. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  5. Brush the buns with buttermilk. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Place a large serving platter over the baking dish. Turn out the sticky buns onto the platter.


If refrigerating the dough, cover with plastic wrap as a damp cloth will dry out.
