Sticky Buns for Easter

What are your family's Easter traditions?  I'd love to hear your favorites. 

For our family most special occasions call for traditional food items.  Sticky buns rank right near the top of our list as a family favorite breakfast food on holidays or birthdays.  I'm sure you'll see why we're into these sticky sensations...

 We used to eat our sticky buns straight up with no extra protein foods to ward off the inevitable sugar buzz.  But lately we're starting to wimp out and add in a protein dish to avoid the sugar shakes. 

Since Easter's almost here I thought you might want the recipe...

20-24 frozen bread rolls
butterscotch pudding (NOT INSTANT)
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 c. brown sugar
cinnamon to taste (we use extreme amounts)

The night before:
Place frozen rolls in bottom of greased bundt pan.  Sprinkle butterscotch pudding on top of rolls.  Mix butter, brown sugar, and cinammon.  Pour mixture over the rolls/pudding.  Cover with a clean dish towel and let them rise overnight.

The next morning--they are risen! 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place uncovered sticky buns in oven; bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. 

You'll have an empty tomb pan in no time.  Happy Easter!


  1. I'm kind of ready to dive through the screen and eat that up. This may or may not be due to 3 1/2 months of the "get rid of that baby weight once and for all" diet. : (

  2. Wait until you make them--just put them on the table and let your family attack them before you sit down... I didn't get to eat all that many if I let my family go to town before I sat down! (often the only diet that lasted)


I love reading your comments--thanks for stopping by and taking the time to write!
