I used to make Sticky Buns with whipping cream in the topping. They were awesome. But that was back in the days when I was not so obsessive-compulsive about saving good recipes. I can't find the recipe I used. I do remember that the sugar-butter-corn syrup toppings (made with no whipping cream) got too hard after the buns sat out for a bit.
I used EYB and found these options:
**Joanne Chang's Sticky Sticky Buns with 1/3 cup each whipping cream and honey in the topping
**Sept-Oct 2004 Cks Illustrated Ultimate Sticky Buns with both a caramel glaze for the pan which contains 2 T whipping cream as well as a pecan topping you apply after baking which has no whipping cream in it
**Kenji Alt's Sticky Bun recipe from Serious Eats which has you pour on a topping after the buns are baked. This topping has a can of sweetened condensed milk in it. (I am putting a link to Kenji's recipe below.)
Anyone tried any of these recipes? Care to comment? Any other sticky bun toppings you love?
Hope you can reply soon. Dough is rising as I type :0)
Thanks in advance.
