February 21: National Sticky Bun Day

February 21 is a perfectly tasty holiday! It’s National Sticky Bun Day! This sweet roll is Germanic in origin, although I’m sure it’s gone through many changes through the years.

The “stickiness” – ingredients like brown sugar, butter, honey, or whatever else the cook wants – is placed on the bottom of the pan. When it’s done cooking, you flip it upside down, and all the stickiness becomes the topping!

I grew up with a deliciously easy version, but I can’t remember it at all, so here’s a recipe from “Taste of Home.”

“Eat honey, my son, for it is good;
honey from the comb is sweet to your taste.”

Proverbs 24:13

  1. Did you change your name?

    • Yeah, I finally got around to changing up the “About” page and putting my name on it. There’s still more I want to do, but . . . one step at a time, right?

  2. Here you go as best I remember:

    Melt 3-4 Tbs margarine in a 8 or 9 inch pie glass pie pan. You can do this in the oven while it is preheating. Use the temp on the biscuits. Stir in 3-4 Tbs. brown sugar. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top–perhaps 3-4 Tbs. Use one can of biscuits. I like to divide each biscuit in half and ball it slightly. Place the biscuit pieces on top of the pecans and bake according to pkg directions. Turn out on plate. Ta-da! Easy, easy sticky buns!
