Sticky Bun Bread Pudding serves pockets of creamy custard between chunks of gooey cinnamon-swirled sweet rolls. Two favorites in one delicious treat.
I love the smell of cinnamon buns baking. Tender flaky layers sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. What could be better than that?
Sticky Buns of course!
My sticky buns need to be really gooey. Extra butter and extra brown sugar.
But that dough and caramel can leave a real sticky mess!
At our house there are just the two of us, so a pan of sticky buns will last a few days. By the time it’s just a memory, that baking dish has some hardened remnants that need attention.
I found some help in the kitchen section at Target. The display on the end of aisle 27 had a great selection of Scotch-Brite™ Brand products. Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots.
Sticky Buns really are easy to make. There is a complete recipe below. Here are some pictures of the step-by-step process!
This is the part I like best to roll out the dough, spread it with butter and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.
Roll up and slice.
Nuts add just enough crunch. The top dotted with whole, sweet pecans or chopped walnuts. Your pick. Either sounds fantastic!
Picture it. The nuts sink into the sweet, sugary goo and disappear. Puffy dough buns filled with cinnamon and sugar get carefully placed on top.
The oven does the rest.
Bake until golden brown and hollow to a tap.
Turn the pan out onto a dish and let gravity do the work! All that delicious gooey, caramel sticky topping drizzles over the buns.
So good! You know you need one while it’s still warm with a cup of coffee.
We’re not finished yet. This post is about making sticky buns more alluring. How is that possible?
Follow along I’ll show you. The secret ingredient is…
Gobs of soft, creamy custard filling nooks and overflowing pockets between chunks of sticky buns.
Break the sticky buns into large pieces and arrange in a 9×13 baking dish.
Make the custard and pour between those tasty sweet roll pieces.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until the custard is set. Test by inserting a knife into the custard. When it comes out clean it’s ready!
You can serve Sticky Bun Bread Pudding warm by itself or top it with whipped cream or crème fraîche.
Drips and spills on my cook top need extra attention. Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge lets me power off gunk without worrying about marring the surface.
Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots have these little spaces between the dots. Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponges,
Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponges and Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Dishwands rinse clean.
