Have Mercy…

So I’ve been feeling bad lately about my lack of cooking. When MDP and I first started dating I used to cook all the time. Then he made the mistake of showing me he can cook too. :) First it started with breakfast on Sundays…now he is pretty much in charge of weekend breakfast. And more and more he has taken over dinner duty as well. Not because I don’t want to but because my hand acts up and cooking/baking can sometimes flare it up worse.

But guilt sunk in along with the fact that for once I had a Friday night and Saturday free. So I told myself I wanted to make him something that took a little time and showed I cared so I went for a Flemish Beef and Beer Stew (I was rebelling against all the Irish Stew made this week). I’ll post the recipe in another post because it was fantastic. Yes it took 5 hours but that was mostly just cook time.

And then I decided that since my hand was feeling good and he is always in charge of breakfast that I would go all out for that as well. I had seen on my food blogger friend Erin’s site the Spiffy Cookie that she made banana bread cinnamon rolls. Those sounded good but her recipe only called for one banana and thanks to my continuous delusion that I can eat 12 bananas from Costco in a week I needed a recipe that used more than one banana. And I wanted them to be sticky buns instead of just cinnamon rolls.

These did not disappoint in any way. These were supposed to be for breakfast but we ended up eating them for dessert. They are fantastic with the Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream I made by the way. Yeah, it’s over kill but I’m pretty sure over kill is all I know how to do. :D

So the next time you have extra bananas (and that always happens) instead of making the standard banana bread why not go the sticky bun route instead?

  1. Droolworthy! What a great treat.



  2. I love you. That is all.

    Wow. Those look so good!!

  4. These look amazing. I usually buy two bags of bananas a week from Costco so we always have a lot of bananas around the house too. Yeast still kind of scares me, but I really want to try making these,

  5. I have to admit, I wish my cinnamon rolls had used more than one banana as well. Love these sticky buns!

  6. Holy Heavens those look GOOD!

  7. Oh wow! This is perfection and a great way to use up bananas, I think almost everyone has a surplus of bananas.

  8. Banana bread sticky buns sound so good!
