Cinnamon Sticky Biscuits

Apr 22, 2016

These are a bit more manageable than full-on cinnamon buns. There’s no kneading or waiting for the dough to rise, but the results are no less delicious!

You Will Need:


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Combine butter, brown sugar and maple syrup or honey in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted and smooth. Pour over the bottom of an 8x8-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and canola oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough.

4. On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a 9x14-inch rectangle. Sprinkle with brown sugar and nuts (if using) and drizzle with maple syrup. Starting from a long side, roll tightly jelly-roll style into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using dental floss or a serrated knife, and place cut side down in the pan.

5. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Invert onto a platter while still warm.
