Simple Sticky Buns

This recipe is one given to Troubadour approximately six years ago by a former co worker.  I have modified it slightly in that I've cut the amount of margarine in half and upped the cinnamon content.

It is a great recipe for cold winter mornings or when you are having overnight company and don't want to spend a lot of time cooking in the morning.

I only make this recipe about once a year since it isn't healthy, but it sure is good.

**This recipe is prepared the night before, so please plan ahead**



1 Pkg Cook Butterscotch Pudding (Not instant)
1/4 Cup Vegan Margarine (I used Earth Balance)
1/2 Cup packed Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
12-15 Rhodes frozen White Dinner Rolls
1/2 Cup chopped Pecans or Walnuts


1.  Grease a bundt pan and set aside.

2.  In a small bowl mix margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon until well combined and set aside. If you need to soften the margarine in the microwave for a few seconds it still works fine.

3.  Evenly distribute the frozen rolls in the bottom of the bundt pan in one layer.

4.  Drop teaspoons of the brown sugar mixture on top of rolls.

5.  Sprinkle with dry Butterscotch pudding.

6.  Sprinkle pecans or walnuts on top if using.

7.  Place in cold oven overnight without turning it on.  Do not turn oven light on as this will cause the buns to raise too much.

(All set for the night)
8.  When you wake up in the morning the buns will have risen overnight.  Note - prepare these right before bed so they don't rise too much.

9.  Without taking pan out of oven.  Turn the oven on to 350˚F (176˚C) and set your timer for 25-30 minutes.  Mine were done to a golden brown in only 25 minutes.  It just depends on your oven.

10.  Take pan out of oven and let rest a few minutes.

11.  Turn over onto platter and serve warm.

These are delicious warmed in the microwave the next morning too.

** Note - most Jello cook puddings use cornstarch and not gelatin - they are 'accidentally vegan'.  Be sure to check the label of your pudding to make sure it is vegan.
