Cinnamon Sticky Buns

Cinnamon Biscuit Sticky Buns
This sounded like a really different kind of cinnamon roll.  First of all, the roll is a baking powder biscuit.  Next, the innards have a honey base.  Back during the days of rationing, this recipe would have been very handy.
 Cinnamon Sticky BunsWhen my yeast-bread loving family tasted these, some of them didn’t like the biscuit change. Others wished there was more goopy sweet sauce in them.  Overall, however, most of them liked them.  I think I would have drizzled some of the inner honey sauce over the baked rolls, adding a little more honey taste to them.

  1. >HI Kristin!

    These sound pretty good…I think I'll try them. D'you think they'd be better with a buttermilk biscuit dough? (Not sure why, but I always like buttermilk recipes better, lol)

    We had bees several years ago before we moved and haven't set the hives back up yet. Still have some rich dark honey from them, probably about 5 quarts still in the pantry. I make yeasty monkey bread from time to time and everyone loves it.

    Love your blog and don't get by often enough. Hopefully I'll do better in 2010.
