I grew up in Lancaster County PA, and sticky buns were always available. Now that I live in Bali, I have to make my own. So glad I did! This recipe is delicious. I had to substitute the local gulah merah (palm sugar) for the brown sugar, and it is absolutely decadent. Easy, too. Thanks for posting.
