A Good Day For Something Gooey

I recently made these easy-as-pie, gooeylicious sticky buns.
The recipe found its way into my hot hands by way of Sarah.

Sarah got the recipe from Lois.

But we call her Loey.

And Calvin calls her Hummus.
(Just learned that today.)

And Ruby is entirely infatuated with her.

And her rolls.


Here's the skinny:
(Or as the case may be, the diabetic-coma-inducing not-at-all-skinny.)


Robin Kurtz's Overnight Butterscotch Rolls
1 15oz bag frozen dinner rolls (about 16-18 individual frozen bread balls)
1 3.5oz cook type butterscotch pudding (aka not "instant" pudding. It will say this on the box!)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
chopped pecans
raisins (optional)

Arrange bread balls evenly around greased bundt pan (grease even if using a non-stick). Sprinkle first the pudding, then brown sugar. Pour butter over all. Sprinkle with pecans and/or raisins.

Cover and let thaw and rise over night. In the morning bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan 2-3 minutes, invert onto serving pan or plate. (Be sure to not cool longer than 2-3 minutes, or you may have a hard time inverting the pan.)

NOTE: If you don't have a bundt pan, you can use an 8x8 baking dish, or double the recipe and use a 9x13. Be sure to run a knife along the edges before inverting, if not using a non-stick pan.

My note: I used an 8x8 dish and omitted the raisins.
This recipe is a keeper, of that I can assure you.

    And how in the world does Ruby play it so cool with those magnificent rolls right in front of her cherubic face?

  2. This recipe is also great with vanilla pudding, if you don't happen to have butterscotch.

  7. Mmmmm ... I LOVE these rolls. And seriously, they aren't so good the day after (at least that is what I say) so you MUST eat them all while still warm ;).

    I should have made these to go with our ice cream this morning. Did you know it was National 'Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast' Day?!?! ;).

  13. Thanks for this one. A friend of mine gave me this years ago and I lost it! I made it the one time and it was marvelous...I always remembered it had butterscotch pudding mix but couldn't remember if it was the cook kind or instant. Anyway, thanks..I can't wait to make this again!

  16. These are our Christmas breakfast rolls! They are yummy but reserved for Christmas (and sometimes Easter. Okay and sometimes Thanksgiving) in our home. I use about 20 rolls though and it works wonderfully. :) Yuuuuummm! Now I'm mad that it's not Christmas!

    I really didn't need yet another recipe that will take it straight to the backside...but I can't resist. These look awesome!

    Thank you. I think.

  22. Great post Lovey II -- Seriously, they do ROCK! People will be please. I'm sure Robin's out there so thankful you are spreading the word...In other interesting news -- Coincidence that Gooey (Goo for short) is actually a nickname I have for Lois. You know Lois, Lo, Loey, Goo, Gooey. Heck, I might have the stuff to make these tomorrow!

  25. Melinda - it's just the little box of pudding that you have to actually cook on the stove, as opposed to the instant pudding mix! Hope that helps. :)

  31. Yum! I made something gooey today! Yummy chocolate bundt cake that I can hardly wait to remove from the pan. If it's a keeper I will share the recipe. It's new to me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please send them a few counties over! YUM!

  33. Wow, Shanny, I feel kinda celebrity-ish for making your blog, but especially flattered Ruby has an infatuation with me (and I her!), and Calvy calls me "Hummus"! My twin sister, Jane, who gave the recipe to me, is long time friends with Robin Kurtz who lives on the Wisconsin/Minnesota border. It was so fun reading everyone's comments - discovering these sticky buns are a family tradition for some,and so many others want to try them! Turns my heart to goo!
    Love, Lois (aka Hummus, Loey, GooGoo)

  36. So... update. I made these this morning for our whole crew (two 9 x 13 pans full of delicious gooey goodness). YUM! Anything I can make to unanimously satisfy 13 picky yet ravishingly hungry people (mostly teenage boys) in this house is a winner, and this recipe did it. Thank you from the bottom of our stomachs! <3
