Very good! I made these using instant potato flakes prepared into mashed potatoes, as I did not have any leftover mashed potatoes, I use 1-1/2 tablespoons dry yeast to speed up the rising time slightly, and increased the sugar in the dough by 1 tablespoon. Great recipe that I will make again soon, thanks Bunny Mom!...Kitten:)

Delicious!! The Sticky Bun dough is perfectly light and rises so well. Your ingredient amounts were spot on - the dough was lovely to work with. I was worried when I turned them out that the tops of the buns looked more soggy than syrupy, however as they cooled the syrup thickened up and made a lovely glaze. I'll definitely use this recipe again.
