National Sticky Bun Day

The sticky bun is the perfect gastronomic delight for anyone who has a sweet tooth. For those who love a good sticky bun, a whole day can be dedicated to eating and celebrating them. Who is going to complain?

It’s now time to celebrate National Sticky Bun Day

It is not clear where the sticky bun originated. Some believe the sticky bun originated in Germany, while others attribute it to Ancient Egyptians. They may have been around since the Middle Ages when cinnamon was more popular in Western Europe, according to historians.

One thing is certain: the sticky bun was brought to Pennsylvania by German settlers. They were brought to America by the Pennsylvania Dutch (Deutsch), who fled religious persecution in the 1700s. These pastries, originally known as’schnecken’, are now considered a Philadelphia specialty.

There are many questions that seem to surround sticky buns. It is possible to clarify some things. What is the difference between cinnamon rolls and sticky buns?

Although the answers to these questions may vary depending on who is asking them, most people agree that nuts make all the difference. Literally, nuts are what transforms a simple cinnamon roll into a sticky bun. These nuts are usually pecans, but they could also be any other variety.

Sticky buns are also, yes, you guessed right, stickier. The sticky buns are stickier because they have a caramel glaze that is made before baking. This caramel glaze is then poured into a baking dish with nuts and the dough rolls are added. After baking is complete, flip the rolls upside down so that the sticky, gooey and nutty goodness remains on top.

Cinnamon rolls do not need to be flipped upside down because they don’t contain a sticky glaze. They are usually coated with a powdered sugar glaze, which is drizzled over the top for a sweet finish.
