Capture the way to your sweet hearts heart and surprise them with these buns. This is one of my favorite recipes. The base of this sticky bun is the Dutch version of a sweet cinnamon rolls recipe which we call the bolus.

The main difference between this sticky bun and a cinnamon rolls is the sticky bun is totally covered in cinnamon sugar and cinnamon buns are covered with cinnamon sugar on one side.

The Dutch bolus is usually swirled but as the outside is covered with cinnamon sugar, sticky all over. This is a bread roll you can’t buy primarily in the South of Holland.

So if I want to eat them I have to make them myself. Which is great because what better way to express the love for food than shape it into a heart?

Taste these sticky buns cinnamon rolls and you will fall in love. They might be slightly different then what you normally eat but you will want them over and over again

These buns are sticky and sweet from the caramelised castor sugar that is combined with the cinnamon. The buns made with a sweet bread dough is soft and a little chewy.

They taste even better the day after baking. You can keep them in the freezer so you can enjoy them the whole week long (if they taste that long).

How to make sticky buns

Start this sticky buns recipe with the dough that is made by hand. Make a flour circle and combine the yeast, sugar and warm water (approx 70℉/30℃) to activate the yeast. Then add milk and a ½ beaten egg to the water.

As salt breaks down yeast, I sprinkle the salt on the flour wall. Now it is time to dig in and combine the water yeast egg milk mixture and add the flour. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until elastic and soft.

When it turns into a consistent dough it is time to take soft butter and knead it through the dough. At first it will be slippery and sticky but resist the urge to add flour.

Keep on kneading the butter through the dough. Then cut the dough into 6 equal golfball pieces and knead them thoroughly.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and put the dough balls on the baking tray. Cover the dough with a wet cloth and let it proof for 1 hour.

To make the sticky buns in a heart shape roll a ball into long string. Combine the brown castor sugar and cinnamon. Brush with water and roll through brown castor sugar and cinnamon mix. Roll them into the shape of a heart.

Pre heat the oven to 500℉/250℃ and bake the sticky buns for about 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool slightly and serve these heart shaped sticky buns with cinnamon.
