Mom-Mom's Sticky Buns
Famous in my family and always looked forward to when being prepared by my grandmother. My father demands that it is made for his birthday breakfast each year. Best enjoyed warm out of the oven.
- Serves: 2 persons
- 2(.25 ounce) packages quick-rising yeast (such as Fleischmann's RapidRise®)
- ½cup lukewarm water
- 4½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 2eggs, beaten
- ½cup warm milk
- ½cup white sugar
- ½cup butter, melted
- 1teaspoon salt
- ¾cup brown sugar
- ½cup butter
- 3tablespoons honey
- 1tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1cup raisins
- 1cup walnuts
- ¼cup butter, melted
- ¾cup white sugar
- 2teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1cup raisins
Step 1Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water in a large bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes. Stir flour, eggs, warm milk, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, and salt into the yeast and water until the mixture is a moist and sticky dough.
Step 2Put dough in a greased bowl and cover with a wet towel. Set aside in a warm place until dough doubles in size and holes poked into dough with a finger stay indented, about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Step 3Stir brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, honey, and corn syrup together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Pour the topping mixture into the bottom of 2 9x13-inch non-stick baking dishes. Sprinkle 1 cup raisins and walnuts evenly onto the topping mixture.
Step 4Punch down dough and roll into a rectangle shape 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick.
Step 5Brush 1/4 cup melted butter over the dough rectangle. Stir 3/4 cup white sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl; sprinkle over the butter. Sprinkle 1 cup raisins evenly over the dough. Roll dough around the filling into a cylinder; cut into 3/4-inch slices and arrange into the baking dishes. Set aside to rest for 20 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
Step 6Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 7Bake rolls in preheated oven until no longer doughy in the middle, about 25 minutes. Immediately flip onto a serving platter, transferring topping onto rolls, and serve warm.
