Sticky buns are a delicious treat for breakfast or a snack that pairs well with milk, coffee, or tea.

Cook Time

Prep time: 2 hours
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 2 hours 45 min
Yields: 9 sticky buns


  • 1 cup warm tap water
  • 3 Tbsp margarine
  • 1 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp skim milk powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp white sugar
  • 2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts, crushed


  1. In the measuring cup or another bowl, add the dry yeast to the hot tap water and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and 2 tbsp of margarine and stir to mix.
  3. Add the yeast/water mix to the dry ingredients and stir with a large wooden spoon to blend.
  4. When the dough is blended, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, sprinkle a little more flour on top of the dough and knead for 5 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix them. Set aside.
  6. On a floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle approximately 18" x 12".
  7. Spread 1 tbsp of margarine over surface of rolled dough and then spread brown sugar-cinnamon mixture on top.
  8. Staring at the wide end, roll dough into an 18" long cylinder.
  9. Cut dough cylinder into 9 (2" long) pieces and place in a 9" square well-oiled baking pan.
  10. Set the pan aside to rise for 1-2 hours, until the tops of the buns are even with the top of the pan.
  11. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.
  12. Place the pan in the centre of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  13. When the buns are done, remove them from the oven and cover them with a plate. Holding both the plate and the pan together, flip the buns out of the pan onto the plate.
  14. Top with crushed walnuts and enjoy.

Sticky Bun Glaze

For that extra sweet tooth, add this sugar glaze to your buns:

1 cup icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon juice

2-4 tsp water

Mix icing sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and water together. Stir to make a soft spreadable glaze. Spread on tops of slightly cooled buns.

Day-Old Buns

To soften and reheat the buns, place them in the microwave for 30-60 seconds and re-enjoy the just-out-of-the-oven experience all over again.
