Our Maple-Cinnamon Sticky Buns Recipe Is Swirled With Sweet Flavor

Start your morning right with these delicious breakfast treats

Whether you’re hosting Sunday brunch or making a special breakfast, this maple-cinnamon sticky buns recipe is sure to delight. It delivers just the right amount of satisfying sweetness. The secret: We add maple syrup to the sauce, along with walnuts, cinnamon and raisins, and then drizzle even more syrup over the buns just before serving. The recipe is easy, too. You can whip it up first thing in the morning, and your house will smell incredible as it’s cooking! Give this recipe a try, and leave us a comment below .

Quick tip: It can be tricky to cut the log of sticky bun dough without squishing the filling. Instead of a knife, use unwaxed dental floss to create uniformly round buns. Simply place a piece of floss under the log, 1” from the end. Bring the ends up, cross them over the top and pull to slice off a perfect pinwheel.
