A great recipe for when you're having house guests... they will gobble these up! These sticky buns are easy to prepare and most of the work is done the night before. I particularly liked the maple syrup and honey topping... a great mix of flavors! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Overnight Sticky Buns

Step-by-Step

  1. For the dough: in a cup combine water, sugar and yeast, stir to dissolve. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, with a mixer on low speed, blend yeast mixture with milk, butter, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, egg yolks, salt and 3 cups of flour until blended. With a wooden spoon stir in 3/4 cup flour.
  3. Turn dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes, working in enough of the remaining 1/4 cup of flour just to keep the dough from sticking.
  4. shape into a ball, place in a greased bowl, turning dough to grease top. cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place (80-85 degrees) until doubled in volume, about an hour.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare filling: In a small bowl combine cinnamon and sugar, set aside. Reserve melted butter.
  6. For topping: In a 1-quart sauce pan combine brown sugar, corn syrup, honey, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon and salt, heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter and brown sugar have melted.
  7. Grease a 13" by 9" baking pan, pour warm melted brown sugar mixture into pan.
  8. Punch down dough, turn onto a lightly floured surface and let rest for 15 minutes. Roll dough into a 12" by 18" rectangle.
  9. Brush dough with melted butter and spinkle with cinnamon brown sugar mixture. Starting at the long side, roll up dough (like you would a jelly-roll) place seam side down on surface and cut crosswise into 20 slices.
  10. Place slices, cut side down on melted brown sugar mixture in prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or up to 15 hours.
  11. Preheat oven to 375. Remove rolls from refrigerater 1 hour before baking. Bake buns until golden, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly in pan, no more then 5 minutes. Place serving tray or jelly-roll pan over the top of the baking pan and invert, remove pan. Serve warm.
  12. Leftovers can be frozen in foil, just reheat in foil at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
