What are sticky buns?

Wikipedia- Sticky buns are a type of dessert or breakfast sweet roll that generally consist of rolled pieces of leavened dough — sometimes containing brown sugar or cinnamon — compressed together to form a flat loaf corresponding to the size of the pan in which they are to be baked.

Before the dough is placed in the baking pan, the latter is linked with the “sticky” ingredients, such as brown sugar, honey (or both), nuts and raisins, and perhaps more sugar and sometimes butter. After the buns are baked, they are inverted, so the pan lining becomes a topping. Commercially produced sticky buns are usually just baked in an aluminum loaf tin, which allows the topping to suffuse the buns, making them sticky throughout. The way the buns were baked allows them to be pulled off as individual servings, although it is often a futile effort.

Disclaimer: Yes, I am very aware that you can make the dough with active yeast however we aren’t going for that today. We want a quick and easy recipe. Let’s just say waiting for the yeast to form and rise isn’t what I prefer doing as a busy adult. So, let’s get down to making them.
