NATIONAL STICKY BUN DAY
I know what you’re thinking…Sara couldn’t find any interesting events to mention for this evening. You are correct! However, I saw this, and the sticky bun is of German descent, just like your awesome Realtor, Sara! So, you’re welcome! =)
National Sticky Bun Day is observed annually on February 21st.
Known as “schnecken” meaning snail, the sticky bun is rolled into a sweet spiral that resembles its German name. Still considered to be a Pennsylvania specialty, it is believed the sticky bun’s origin in the United States began in the 19th century. German settlers brought their baking traditions with them when they began settling in and around Philadelphia.
Most often served for breakfast or as a dessert, sticky buns consist of rolled pieces of leavened dough that contain brown sugar and sometimes cinnamon. Before the dough is placed in the pan, the pan is lined with sticky sweet ingredients such as maple syrup, honey, nuts, sugar and butter. When the buns are finished baking, they are flipped upside down so the sticky bottom becomes the topping.
Here are some yummy recipes!
