National Sticky-Bun day is celebrated on February 21st and honors the delicious, sticky pastry. A sticky bun is a pastry that is usually eaten for breakfast but can also be eaten as dessert. A common dessert that people can associate sticky-buns with is a hunny-bun. The difference is how they are made. While hunny-buns are made quickly in a factory, sticky-buns are supposed to be a fun step-by-step process. The two major things that set them apart is that the dough is rolled in either sugar and/or cinnamon before baking, or the pan is lined with sticky toppings before putting the dough onto it – toppings like maple syrup, sugar, butter, honey and/or nuts. When done baking, the buns are flipped over so that the sticky bottoms are then on top. The origin of the celebration of the day is thought to have come from the 18th century when German settlers baked them when they settled here in the United States. The area where it was first celebrated was in Philadelphia and was originally known as “Schnecken.” So, have you had your sticky-bun treat yet?
