Caramel Sticky Buns ~ a make along recipe for children~
Secret Ingredient…..ICE CREAM….”you scream, we scream…..” Check out these Caramel Sticky Buns from Smashed Peas and Carrots Gracie and I had fun making them together this morning…I think I’m inspiring her love of cooking because last night for bedtime snack, she said “mom, i’m going to make up my own special recipe and make my own snack” i thought, “wow…that’s great!” she came up with a bowl of cheerios with sliced strawberries and milk….and she was awfully proud of the snack she made up and created….ORIGINALITY AT IT’S FINEST!
1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
1 cup vanilla ice cream, melted (I use Blue Bunny Frozen Vanilla yogurt)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Thaw bread loaf in a greased bread pan and cover with plastic wrap that has been greased to prevent sticking. Once, bread has doubled in size, or puffs out nicely over the top of the pan it’s ready to go!
Mix the ice cream, butter, and both sugars together and pour into a greased 9x13x2 inch baking dish. Pull the thawed bread loaf into 30 or so pieces and drop into the ice cream mixture. Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until bread is starting to turn golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes and then invert onto a serving platter.
