Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yum! This treat has all the flavors of cinnamon buns and sticky buns - without all the work. So easy to prepare, you just throw everything in a Bundt pan the night before and forget about it. In the morning, pop the bread into the oven and you'll have a wonderful aroma spreading throughout your home that will get everyone out of bed. It's similar to monkey bread in the way it's made but has the texture and taste of a sticky bun. We highly recommend making these part of your new Christmas traditions.
