National Sticky Bun Day – February 21
National Sticky Bun Day is celebrated annually on February 21.
Originally known as "Schnecken" and still is considered to be a Philadelphia specialty, it is believed that the sticky buns origin in the United States began in the 18th century when the German settlers brought them along when they began settling near Pennsylvania.
Most often served for breakfast or as a dessert, sticky buns generally consist of rolled pieces of leavened dough that most often contain brown sugar and/or cinnamon. Prior to the dough being placed in the pan, the pan is lined with it's "sticky" ingredients such as: maple syrup, honey, nuts, sugar and butter. When the buns are finished baking, they are then flipped upside down so that the "sticky" bottom then becomes the topping.
Famous cousins to the sticky bun are: cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls and monkey bread.
