I can't say enough good things about this recipe. I just pulled it out of the oven and it's great ! I started reading the reviews after I put it in the oven and became concerned that I would have a sticky mess. Nope. I did cook it about 50 minutes to make sure the center was set. As for the butter sugar mixture sinking, I thought that was suppose to happen so it looks like cinnamon rolls.
