Easy Sticky Buns

Quick and Easy Sticky Bun Recipe.It's perfect for a lazy morning!
 Mmmm! I love sticky buns! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! However, making the cinnamon buns from scratch are a pain to make. I much prefer to use premade cinnamon rolls (because I'm lazy) but I can totally melt some butter and brown sugar and make this ooey gooey concoction to make my own sticky buns! It's perfect for lazy mornings.

Small Batch Sticky Buns are perfect for a breakfast party of two.

Don't get me wrong, I would totally make this for dessert as well. A big 'ol sticky bun with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! Ohhh... I can taste it now!

Cinnamon Buns a la Mode! Come to mama!

Ooey Gooey Sticky Buns - from the fridge to your belly in under an hour!

However, like I said, these are made with canned cinnamon buns. Pick up your favorite at the store, or make some like these and then make the brown sugar goo to go with it.

The brown sugar goo can be made the day before or in the morning if you've forgotten. No biggie.

I've always got to get more napkins out when I'm making these quick and easy Sticky Buns!

Add some walnuts or pecans to the mix and you get this amazing nutty, sticky, gooey, breakfast. Oh my! Bring some wet wipes for sticky fingers after. 

I know I couldn't eat this with a fork! It tastes so much better when eaten with your fingers. Lol!

Quick and Easy, Sunday Morning Sticky Buns are perfect for me when I don't have time to bake from scratch!

Two Cup Tuesday No.108

Well we just had the snow storm that wasn't... Thank goodness because I hate shoveling snow. They were predicting A LOT of snow in the DC area this entire weekend and it's just been too warm. Phew! Dodged that bullet, er, storm.

I think that I'm back to my regular schedule of baking, blogging, and staying on top of social media. January has been tough on me. I know you don't think that going on a cruise is all that tough, but really, finding summer clothes (in the middle of winter) and preparing for the trip was very time consuming. Then the week away without very good internet service and, let's be real here - why would I be on my computer when I'm in the Caribbean? 

I finally have a new post up on Dieter's Downfall starting this week! Whew! Inspired by the trip, I've made a Hummingbird Cake with Pineapple Frosting and Pineapple Flowers
I LOVE how it turned out! Don't you? It's just so pretty! Those dehydrated pineapple flowers are simply stunning and really stand out on the cake!

Two Cup Tuesday No.106

Oh my gosh, you guys! I am on the blogger vacation of a life time right now!! I am out in the Atlantic Ocean on-board the Oasis of the Seas cruise ship. All I have to say is that the first 48 hours has been amazing. I am hanging out with a lot of great ladies, learning a lot of photography tips and getting to tour Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Marteen. 

If you'd like to follow along, look for #ClickRetreat on IG and FB. I've been taking way too many pictures with my "big girl" camera that I haven't as many with my phone to share on social media. 

It's such a wonderful opportunity and I am so thankful to be able to attend. I promise to share some of the things I've learned with ya soon!

Sorry, but blogger just isn't playing nice with the satellite internet, so I couldn't do all the features this week. They will be back next week. 

Have a great week and I'll see everyone next week!
