- 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1 Cup warm water
- 1 Cup warm milk
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 5 1/2 to 6 Cups flour
- 2 Teaspoons salt
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 4 Tablespoons softened butter or margarine
- 1 Cup light brown sugar
- 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
- In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water and milk. Whisk in the sugar. Put two cups of the flour into the bowl. Whisk together really well, then let it sit for ten minutes.
- Stir in the salt and beaten eggs, then add the remaining flour, one cup at a time. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured countertop and knead for ten minutes.
- Place the ball in a bowl rubbed with vegetable oil and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a draft-free area for one to two hours, or until doubled in size. Punch the dough down and knead it again to remove air bubbles.
- Divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a large rectangle, about 10 by 14 inches. Spread two tablespoons of butter over each rectangle. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the buttered dough.
- Starting at one of the longer edges, roll the dough into a jelly roll. Cut the dough into one inch sections with a sharp knife. Place each piece in a 13 by 9 inch baking dish that has been generously buttered and sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. The sticky buns should just barely be touching. Cover the sticky buns with plastic wrap and let them rise for 30 minutes.
- Bake for 25 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack for five minutes. Serve while warm. Makes 24 sticky buns.
To freeze, store in airtight container and freeze for up to six weeks. Unthaw at room temperature and microwave for 30 seconds.
