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.”
