Sorry I haven’t been blogging much; I’ve been being productive. I’ve had such a stagnant summer, that it feels good to get up early and have something to show for my day besides quarrelsome children and a messy playroom.
I went on a big sock round-up yesterday and spent hours sorting and matching. (Let me just mention for the thousandth time how much I hate socks.) I still have one little pile to go and then the rest will be tossed in the garbage. This is their last chance to find a mate or it’s off with their heads!
I’ve made bread three times since school started last week (still not enough bread to feed my family, however. They’re like a swarm of locusts). I even dragged out my wheat grinder to do my own flour. I’m more of a white bread kind of girl, though, so I made a couple of loaves of that as well.
This morning I also made sticky buns. Like cinnamon rolls but a million times easier. So ooey and gooey; I’m still riding the sugar high.
Here is the recipe in case you would like to treat your family. Or the people at work. Or even total strangers (I’m sure they’d like Sticky Buns too.) Make them the night before and bake them in the morning.

Thanks for the sweet bun recipes I can't wait to try it out! Could you PLEASE post the recipe for the white bread, my husband can only eat bread (health reasons) and this would make his day!
It all looks soooo good. I love homemade food. I really dislike alot of premade and processed stuff at the stores, so I make alot from scratch. Which has been my downfall the last few months.
I am salivating! And much in awe of your mad bread skillz. You make it look so easy.
Best line ever: "still not enough bread to feed my family, however. They're like a swarm of locusts"
Such a GREAT blog Jennie!
BTW….I am a SHARE girl from way back!
Your blog makes my day!
change that to "2 loaves of Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough" and might just send you a pack of coupons. 😉
You must have a rockin' sandwich bread loaf pan… it IS amazing.
(I didn't know socks had heads)
How did you make your bread look just like store bought? Kelly would undoubtedly DIE if I ever made a white bread like that. Do send me the recipe!
Long distance teasing is CRUEL – you can't buy frozen bread dough or "cook & serve" pudding mix here…=(
Hey, my boys use the odd socks to good purposes – I stick them on their hands, spray with water or glass cleaner and they dust all the horizontal surfaces with their "Mitts of Death". I hate dusting more than socks =D
Mmm, those buns look good!
Oh my gosh, I need a sticky bun!
We had that recipe in Relief Society, but it used cook-and-serve BUTTERSCOTCH pudding, and a cup of chopped pecans. It is so violently SINFUL you are forced to eat every single piece yourself while hiding in a locked bathroom.
Thanks, I had always wondered how people made those.
I usually toss flour, etc. in the breadmaker, pull it out and make cinnamon rolls, but some time when I have extra time and discipline I'll have to use this recipe.
I think I need the recipe for that white bread! That is the most perfect sandwich loaf I have EVER seen!
No, these sticky buns are much easier than anything from scratch. I mean, it's a matter of cutting up frozen bread dough.
So can I take back the comment that I made about wanting to see a picture of YOUR white bread that you did two posts after this? I must admit, I'm feeling rather ambitious now. Someday, maybe I can bake beautiful bread like you. Need (knead) that pan first though!
Oh, soooo yummy—if only I could eat carbs and sugar….
My recipe is like the other comment – butterscotch pudding mix – but the vanilla would be good too -I'll try that next time. Instead of cutting up a frozen loaf I use the Rhodes parker house roll dough – and I put it in a bundt pan. Anyway you stack it up it's fabulous! Dough + brown sugar + cinnamon + nuts = heaven!
And again I'm grateful for another one of your recipes!
I made the sticky buns as a treat for my kids. Okay… as a treat for me (and my kids and hubby happened to get some too 🙂 They were so easy and yet so delicious!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
