Strawberry Sticky Buns

My mom always made the best breakfasts on the weekends.   And naturally I wanna be like my mama!  Sometimes...  I get tired of doing the same thing... bacon, biscuits, eggs, cinnamon rolls.  We could almost make a mathematical sequence (or pattern) out of our eating habits.  So, I've been trying to find EASY ways to mix things up a bit.  Like everyone else I've become intrigued by all of the sticky buns/cinnamon rolls/monkey bread- canned biscuit recipes on the internet.  They had me at canned biscuit.  (Someday I'll post a how-not-to make a homemade biscuit recipe. Since that's a bread I just can't seem to master.)

I found a really scrumptious looking orange sticky bun recipe HERE by Hannah at All Things Delicious. But I didn't have anything orange in the fridge.  However, I just bought some really good strawberry preserves.... And I thought I can do something with this.  

Here's my Strawberry Sticky Buns Recipe:
1 can of large flaky biscuits (I used the generic version of Grands Flaky)
1 cup of strawberry preserves or what ever type of preserves you prefer (I just eyeballed this.)
1 stick unsalted butter

That's it!

Grease bundt pan with cooking spray and preheat oven to 350.  

Partially melt butter.  This will make it easier to stir in preserves.  

Stir in preserves.

This is what it will look like when it is all mixed together.  Because my preserves were from the fridge it made a really creamy mixture.  If yours are from the pantry it may not look exactly like this photo.  If you stopped at this point you'd have a really yummy strawberry butter!

Then I microwaved it until the butter was melted again.  

The strawberry goodness will fall to the bottom, so I continued to stir mixture through the remaining steps.  

Toss the the biscuits in the strawberry butter mixture.  

Line biscuits in greased bundt pan like this. Then pour remaining strawberry butter over the top.  

Bake for 20-30 minutes in at 350.  

Okay, so they don't look like much here.... but just wait.  

Don't wait for them to cool.  You'll want to go ahead and turn them onto a platter right away.

Use a knife to lift the bundt pan, otherwise it can be a bit tricky to get off the platter. 

Here's the strawberry sticky buns.  Yummy!!  

Another view!  They were a bit hit at our house.  


  1. This reminds me that I have misplaced my bundt pan...actually I let someone borrow it and cant remember who. I'm sure TJ Maxx will have one!

  2. You are sweet to mention your mother! She didn't cook this well!
